Flavours and Colours
Pasta can be coloured by mixing the dough with vegetable or fruit extracts, which also add flavours and aromas to it. The result is a treat for both the eye and the palate. All colour combinations existing in nature can be therefore created: from blue-green of spirulina algae, to purple of red turnips, to the different shades of red of peppers, tomatoes or strawberries, to orange of carrots or the sophisticated dotted effect of black pepper. And this is not all, because colours can then be combined and shades are obtained that resemble the brush strokes of a painter.
Invent your Shape
BluRhapsody great strength undoubtedly lies in its endless customizations. Anything you imagine can become a pasta shape. Several Michelin-starred chefs and event organizers have already asked BluRhapsody for interesting reinterpretations of shapes.
Chef Roll Mussels
This is how Mussel was born, based on a creative idea of chef Matthew Voskuil of The Venetian Hotel (Las Vegas). An interesting shape allowing to create constant suggestions and surprises. Imagine you find a beautiful and succulent mussel in your dish and you can also eat its shell. The shell is pasta. Black comes from squid ink mixed with semolina, which also gives pasta the unmistakable aroma of the sea. Identification is complete, amazement never ends.
And it is only the beginning.
