The Magic Touch

2 09 2009

Cute boys make my heart flutter, but pasta is what makes me weak in the knees.

The perfect vessel for any seasonal ingredient, cheap enough to feed an army but sexy enough for a dressed up meal, bathed in tomatoes or cream or a simple olive oil coating, from your childhood Alphaghetti to a five star restaurant’s gnocchi — unlike those cute boys, pasta will never leave you hangin’ on a cold Saturday night.

Though Italy has claimed the crown of lokshen heritage, history states that the true Pasta Patriarch is China. 

So it didn’t surprise me when I saw this YouTube video a couple nights ago featuring a talented chef at a prominent U.S. chinese restaurant showing off his pasta making skills.

Take a peek and tell me that what you see is not ridiculous!
