This is the question that all foodistas and gastronomy lovers ask themselves (or almost): but what can great chefs cook once they have returned to the privacy of their home, far from the frenzy of the stoves? and timed dressages? Contrary to the clichés and other images of Epinal, these artisans of haute cuisine generally confide in betting on the simplicity of some of their favorite dishes that they like to sublimate. At least that’s what Fabrizio Ferrara, Amandine Chaignot and Gianmarco Gorni suggest, three great Parisian chefs who, in partnership with Rummo, reveal their favorite Italian pasta recipe. Unconditional lovers of transalpine cuisine, everyone has applied themselves to playing with the codes of this dish of unparalleled generosity, galvanizing the emblematic product at theLenta Lavorazione ® for their abundant creativity.
This is how Fabrizio Ferrara, Italian chef from Osteria Ferrara who went to Alain Ducasse and pioneer of new Italian cuisine with his Caffè dei Cioppi, offered to deliver his interpretation of the mythical spaghetti alla puttanescad of Neapolitan origin.

A sense of detail shared by Amandine Chaignot, the chef of the Pouliche restaurant in Paris, who gives us a slight inflection for dishes that are both healthy and quick to cook. His cute sin? Pasta obviously, but gluten-free and 100% vegetarian, with which it mixes asparagus and fresh hazelnuts. Or when the authentic pasta takes hold of contemporary veggie codes, with disconcerting freshness and freedom. As for Gianmarco Gorni, chef of the Goguette restaurant in Paris, he has made the mix and match a unique culinary signature, as evidenced by his daring recipe of Mezzi Rigatoni, smoked brisket, anchovies, pecorino romano and candied lemon.
