My first post, and sorry if it is a dupilicate post or in the wrong place.
There was a flood in Italy last week and one of the finest and most historic pasta makers of the region of Campania, the company Rummo, near Naples, had its factories and warehouses hit with a devastating flood. There is a twitter hashtag #SaveRummo and Facebook movement growing to appeal to everyone to buy some Rummo pasta this week to support the company immediately.
It is fantastically delicious pasta of the highest quality, and like so many pastas in the Campania regions, comes in inventive marvelous and historic shapes. You won't regret the decision to buy and eat it. You'll might get hooked fo life. I have been able to buy Rummo at Whole Foods stores. In the UK, I understand it can be bought at Waitrose and at Lina in London.
Please help save Rummo. It is an important part of Italian history and pasta history -- and that is world history!
