Joe Cicala Makes Maccheroni alla Mugnaia

PHILADELPHIA –  Every new year we go back through our archive. This year, we decided to have fun putting together a .gif in the process with some outtakes. While on assignment for Food & Wine a few years back, Chef Joe Cicala of Le Virtù in Philadelphia, demonstrated his process of hand-pulling a single-strand of pasta for us. The dish, Maccheroni alla Mugnaia, originates from the Abruzzo region of Italy. It is served on a wooden cutting board with garlic, olive oil, and grated pecorino, along with dried chiles which you can snip to season to your own taste. Below are our portfolio images that resulted from the shoot.
