One of the interesting characteristics of the book Pasta by Design, is that each page highlights a noodle shape and each shape is shown as a CAD. The computer drawings isolate the noodle and shows it as an individual design. The books layout of shapes sparked an individual organization for our pasta dies. Now, each die is stored on its own ready to be used. Like the book, the order is just the beginning. Looking at what is possible with these beautifully machined pieces of bronze kick starts the mind. Having them arranged allows for ease of use and adjustment in pasta making. Not every dough is right for a certain shape. With the dies easily within reach we can change dies and find the optimum shape for a specific dough or make several shapes with one dough and see how they eat on their own and in sauces. Organizing frees the mind from thinking about finding and allows it to work on combining and creating.
