One beautiful and bright weekend, my husband and daughter felt like pasta, so they decided to make one and because my body has a strong aversion for regular gluten-filled pasta, the duo went on a hunt for a gluten-free version (how thoughtful, sweet and considerate!). But what will remain unforgettable and evergreen in my memory was the Cup4Cup flour that was used in making this finger-licking delicious pasta. We happened to have some in the house and it was the perfect substitute for all-purpose flour.
The Cup4Cup flour was created and developed by Lena Kwak, a pastry chef extraordinaire at the French Laundry. Lena is the co-founder of the establishment and works alongside the owner/chef, Thomas Keller. To say the flour is a stellar representation of Lena’s culinary expertise is an understatement ─ it was unbelievably good! Tell you what, I was opportune to attend the press launch of the product some years ago, and there were a ton of treats crafted from Cup4Cup and you could almost swear they weren’t gluten-free; everything was oh-so-delicious and scrumptious!
Forgive my little digression; I just had to relive that amazing experience. Now back to our weekend pasta story…. My husband found the perfect pasta recipe/tutorial on the William Sonoma site and guess who the chef was? You guessed right, it was Lena and another talented French Laundry chef who taught the sumptuous pasta recipe. My husband and daughter followed the recipe to the letter and boy did it turn out great! We had friends over for dinner and when we told them the pasta was gluten-free, they stared at us in disbelief. To put it succinctly, it was too good to be gluten-free!
