The Vera Pasta Story

Simple, Slow, Wholesome

Our fresh pasta is the mouthwatering culmination of a creative amalgamation - a mixture of modern innovation and traditional pasta-making techniques. It’s unique and eclectic, but every aspect of our pasta making can be traced back to Italia.

Using authentic and time-tested methods he absorbed during his remarkable exploration of Italy, Chef Joe D’Andrea crafts homemade artisan pasta that consistently engenders delicious descriptions, feedback and reviews - from “genuine, delicate and superb” to “couldn’t make it better ourselves.”

Chef D’Andrea is emphatic about the diligence in the details - the simple ingredients, the slow process and the wholesome experience. And we’d love to share our gourmet pasta goodness with you.

Our Process

  • Simple: Natural Ingredients

    Our pasta company utilizes the age-old technique of pasta extrusion, which originated from the South of Italy. ‘To extrude’ is defined as ‘to push out’ or ‘to shape’, and through this method of creating fresh pasta, dough is pushed through bronze dies which hold the shapes of common pastas. Once pushed through, the pasta dough comes out looking like the pastas we know and love.

  • Slow: Artisan Process

    The method of extruding pasta with bronze dies does not just result in fresh pasta which uses the revered Italian tradition, but also in pasta with a very distinct texture. Because of the high pressure and the ensuing tension from extruding, what comes out is pasta with a coarse texture. This is a defining quality of artisan pasta extruded from bronze dies, and is also the feature that we think makes it special.

  • Wholesome: Gastronomic Experience

    One more thing that makes Vera Pasta’s fresh pastas unique is its flavors. We also specialize in flavored gourmet pastas which are made with only fresh, seasonal produce. The flavors we add to our pastas are sure to enhance its natural tastes, as well complement sauces really well, leading to a brand new gastronomic experience.
