Dumpling & Strand Co-Proprietors Kelly McManus and Jeff Casper, a.k.a. Noodlers at Large, debuted an array of fresh pasta (dubbed "exceptionally curious noodles") at the June 25 Market. Their small-batch European pasta and Asian noodles both have gluten-free options.
In addition to the superior taste and texture, an added bonus of these fresh noodles is the quick cooking time - just 3 minutes for the Rustic Egg Pici I'm making.
Their products can also be frozen, so feel to stock up when they return on these upcoming Market dates: July 9, July 16, July 30 and August 6. You can also follow them on Facebook.
The flours that go into their noodles (click on the image to enlarge):
They offer three Asian noodles - Traditional Ramen, Traditional Gluten-Free Ramen and 100% Buckwheat Juwari Soba.
Sprouted Whole Wheat Levain varieties include Pappardelle, Fettuccine and Fusillo.
Their Rustic Egg varieties include Fettuccine, Fusillo, Campanelle, Extra Thick Spaghetti, Sheets and Pici. MCFM Founder Brenda Langton told me Pici is her favorite pasta.
Rustic Egg Gluten-Free varieties include Fettuccine, Fusillo, Campanelle and Sheets.
Can you tell Kelly is excited to be at the Mill City Farmers Market?
Word is getting out - Local Crate recently included Dumpling & Strand Sprouted Whole Wheat Levain Fettuccine in one of their featured meals.
