The other weekend my husband and daughter wanted to make pasta, so they set out to find a good gluten-free one to make (I’m gluten-intolerant). We had some Cup4Cup flour in the house, which is meant to be a perfect substitute for all-purpose flour. It was developed by co-founder Lena Kwak who was working as a pastry chef at the French Laundry (the other co-founder is owner/chef Thomas Keller) and wow, is it good. I went to the press event for it a couple of years ago at Per Se, and they had a gazillion treats made with Cup4Cup, and you couldn’t tell that anything was gluten-free. But back to the pasta…my husband found a great recipe/video on the William Sonoma site, where Lena and another French Laundry chef teach you how to make the pasta. It was so good, and our friends who came over for dinner didn’t believe us when we told them it was gluten-free.  (P.S. the video is 6 minutes long and it’s a great You-Tube babysitter moment if you need 6 minutes of peace, that is pretty guilt-free…)
