ISO pasta de grano arso

Pasta de grano arso is a pasta made from burnt wheat.

I would also buy the grano arso and make the pasta.

A search revealed very little so this will be a tough one to find. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This place in Seattle imports it and repackages for the US - maybe someone sells it to Canada?

    Google for "toasted flour" or ""roasted flour" for how-to.
    A random recipe selection - not sure how authentic it is.

      A little addendum

      These guys offer it and will ship to Canada - although I would expect shipping to at least double the total cost.

        I can only seem to find one manufacturer of pasta al farina arsa and thats DiCuonzo (Ritrovo being the parent co I think) I did however find that this online retailer also sells it: Maybe someone on the NY board has used them? Otherwise also apparently sells it and rumor has it they'll now ship foodstuff to Canada but I've yet to verify that one.

        HTH :)

          Can & Maple, thanks. I guess I'll have to wait til I have a couple of beers to help overcome the shipping costs!

            I have shipped from the U.S. and yes, you will need more than a couple of beers to dull that pain. I'd rather spend that same money and get more value closer to home. I always grocery shop on vacation. That's when I treat myself to these kinds of things. Having said that, since I am in the U.S. now, I will be watching for this pasta. Thanks for the heads up!

        I inquired with Ritrovo and got back this reply.
