Need help Finding Corzetti pasta mold/stamp!!

  • 6

I am seaching for a Corzetti stamp to make the traditional pasta from Genoa. I saw a story in savuer mag several months ago and called number that they gave and was told that there is only one man that hand carves these stamps for the pasta. Does any one have any Idea's? I also did a internet serch and only came up with one. Thanks.

  1. Italy is intensely regional so La Menagere in Florence may not have it but it's one of the best cookware shops I've seen and they had things from all over Italy.
    If they can't help you, they may be able to point you in the right direction and perhaps recommend a cookware shop in Genoa. Genoa's a big city and there's got to be more than one guy making the molds for the traditional pasta.
    La Ménagère, via Ginori 8/r, 50129 Florence, tel. +39-055-213-875
    You have to start somewhere.

        What a terrific resource! Some of the things they offer are so hard to find. Thank you!

      2. I was going to post the same source as MacArthur Mike, but he beat me too it. :)

        It was just interesting to me to see this post, because I was searching for corzetti stamps myself just yesterday after reading about them in the book "The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken" by Laura Schenone. Great read and great resource guide in the back of the book (which it finally occured to me to look in for sources for corzetti stamps, and the source listed was the one MacArthur posted.)

          Oh, I loved "The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken."

        2. I know a very talented wood turner in California, Terry Mirri, who also sells Corzetti pasta stamps that can be ordered in a variety of woods and design styles: www.artisanalpastatools.com
          Good luck!
