The mission of the Geometry of Pasta brand is both a simple and a monumental one: To pair each shape of pasta with its ideal sauce. The company’s philosophy is that this is the only way to eat Italian pasta authentically. But with literally hundreds of types of pasta shapes in the Italian culinary canon, it’s a big task that requires a lot of identification and analysis. It all started in 2010 with the publication of the book of the same name written and illustrated by Caz Hildebrand and Jacob Kenedy. One could say that Geometry of Pasta is as committed to the study of pasta and sauce — the history, function, and taste — as it is to producing high quality products.
Regional Italian Pasta
Pasta is part of the Italian identity, and each region of Italy developed its own distinct pasta shapes over time. Geometry of Pasta believes that the best way to match a pasta type with its perfect sauce is to think about the local ingredients of the region of origin. That’s why their pasta comes from the best small-scale artisan manufacturers from across the country, who pay proper homage to their regions’ traditional techniques and flavors.
