These two pasta shapes for the machine are both twisted, but their texture and applications are different. I am having trouble identifying their names so we will refer to them by their die numbers: #251 and #362. #251 is the tighter rounded corkscrew while #362 is the one that looks like a whelk/conch shell. We were first introduced to #251 by Anthony Goncalves at Restaurant 42. He served it with a ragout of braised snails and the dish was amazing. The second shape, #362, resembles a whelk shell and has us itching to get our hands on some whelks to go with them. In the meantime, Aki happily turned them into macaroni and cheese. The swirls are perfect for holding the creamy sauce. We look forward to hearing about their true names and what other people have done with them. For now we will use our imaginations and palates to chase great new pasta dishes in our kitchen.
