Thin Noodles 'Lașcă' 200gRegular price £3.75
The term 'Lașcă' is the regional name given to traditional, homemade Romanian noodles (pasta) that are used in both savoury and sweet dishes. In Transylvania, these thin noodles are famously added to clear chicken soups. In the countryside lașcă is prepared in every home by the housewives and is used as part of a traditional menu at family events, holidays and on Sundays.
They are made from flour, a little salt and eggs from their own households from truly free range chickens. Following a traditional, family recipe and passed on through the generations, the dough is prepared on a wooden board and battered by hand until it thickens. It is then rolled twice - first with a rolling pin, and second in a manual pasta machine and then left to dry. The rolled dough is cut into noodles, left to dry on cotton towels and fluffed occasionally by hand. This natural process of production is what makes the difference between 'Lașcă' noodles and industrial products.
This product is 100% natural and completely free from additives & preservatives. It is certified as a traditional product on the Romanian National Register of traditional products.
