5 basic tools in an Italian kitchen

What do you need if you want to "Italianize" your kitchen?

1y ago

What do you need in an Italian kitchen? Not many things, but the important thing is that they are of quality.

Leaving aside pots and pans, which I hope you have in abundance, and the kitchen scale that I imagine is useful for all the kitchens in the world, here are five tools that really cannot be missing if you want to "Italianize" your stove paradise.

1. Moka

Designed by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933, it has remained almost unchanged over time. To drink an Italian espresso, this is inevitable.

2. Grater

Seriously, how do you do it without it? Electric, crank or manual, the vital thing is always to have Parmesan and Pecorino Romano in the fridge to grate on the pasta.

3. Wooden spoons

How do you turn the sauce otherwise? Better to have two or three, you never know.

4. Pasta making machine

I know there are new generation, electric machines that even make the dough. But if we want to stay on the traditional one hand machine with accessories to create different pasta shapes, it is ideal.

5. Rolling pin

Maybe you won't need pasta, but what if you want to make a focaccia or a tart?

Well... how many of these things do you have at your house? Tell me in the comments!

    • Esatto!!! Volevo scriverlo, ma poi ho pensato che avrei dovuto introdurre l'argomento delle "donne degli anni '70 che attendono il marito di ritorno dal bar armate di mattarello" 😂😂😂

  • Moka: no, I have a Nespresso machine instead. No regrets 😊.

    Grater: yes, of course, both manual and electric.

    Wooden spoons and spatulas: yes, obviously 😊.

    Pasta maker: yes, being the lazy person that I am, it's one of those fancy electric ones that also mix/knead the dough (

    Rolling pin: yes, a small one, because I don't really bake. A cheese cake is the only thing I can do, thanks to a recipe from a collegue 😉, a small rolling pin is sufficient for that.

    So there we go, my kitchen is only partially Italian but since I'm not Italian at all, I'm ready to take the blame... 😁
