My sourdough pasta worked! I wasn’t at all sure it would – I’ve never seen anyone making sourdough pasta from whole grain spelt flour. . I made an extra thick, dough-like spelt starter, let it rise overnight and then added more flour, water and salt in the morning. After an hour this pasta dough had got a lot bigger, so I knocked it back and we got the beautiful Imperia hand-crank pasta machine out. Using this machine you have to make the dough into long sheets of lasagna-like thickness first, then put those through a ‘shredder’ to cut the tagliatelle. . I managed to film the ribbons of sourdough pasta coming out of the machine with one hand. Check out my story today to watch it – it’s kinda mesmerising.
