The event

For one week some of the best Italian restaurants in Berlin will offer a first course of fresh pasta (you have the choice between two really particular recipes and each portion is at least 100g) and a glass of wine or a soft drink for just 10€. The offer is valid in all Italian restaurants participating in the event (please scroll down for the full list). To enjoy these homemade pasta specialities you need just to go to one of the participating restaurants and ask for the True Italian menu. The Berlin Homemade Pasta Week is a Berlin Italian Communication’s initiative organized within the True Italian project in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin. The event will take place during the Italian Cuisine Week in the world promoted by the Italian Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Agricultural Policies, University Education and Research and Economic Development. Mondo Pasta is sponsoring the event.

What is homemade pasta?

Homemade pasta doesn’t contain any preserving agents and is generally created by a hand process with the help of a rolling pin. The Berlin Homemade Pasta Week focuses on fresh pasta, which is a pasta cooked shortly after being prepared. There are three types of fresh pasta: one made with eggs and flour, a second one made with semolina flour and water and the last one made with potatoes. The first category includes tagliatelle, fettuccine, lasagna, spaghetti alla chitarra, ravioli and any type of filled pasta. Orecchiette and gnocchi belong to the second and the third category respectively. In Germany the average consumption of pasta is 8,5 kg per person (in Italy is about 25 kg).

The map

For the homemade pasta itinerary a map will be provided, on the model of the Berlin public transportation one, designed to illustrate all restaurants locations. The map will be divided also according to the city’s main areas providing restaurants addresses, opening times and True Italian specialities. The map is now available either as PDF or in paper version as flyer in all the participating restaurants or at the True Italian office in Gryphiusstr. 23, Berlin Friedrichshain.

The True Italian project

The True Italian project’s aim is to create a network that promote and add an extra value to the Italian tradition in Germany. In fact, every True Italian place has a sticker with the project logo (filed with Deutsches Patent-und Markenamt) on its window proving its participation in the network. True Italian is also a dynamic platform which involves different events, tasting and cooking workshops. The project has been created and carried out over the years by Berlin Italian CommunicationTrue Italian are all those Italian cuisine ambassadors that, starting form the choice of ingredients, prove every day the dedication to the high quality of their dishes. To be clear: when we talk about True Italian, we don’t simply refer to the chef or owner’s nationality, but we talk about the way they approach to the cuisine. Unique recipes and care about ingredients’ quality: these are the keywords of every True Italian restaurant.
