If you’re looking for a decent gluten-free pasta that doesn’t turn to a starchy stodge, Italy is the place to begin. We take a look at some of the Italian-made brands out there

Whether as part of a coeliac diet or for more general health and wellbeing reasons, the consumption of gluten-free products continues to rise, with at least 15 per cent of UK households avoiding wheat and gluten in their diets. There is a huge array of gluten-free products available these days, many of them a satisfying substitute for the original products, other less so. When it comes to pasta, we concluded that ‘Made in Italy’ brands would offer the best and most authentic-tasting alternatives, given that the consumption of pasta is such a cornerstone of cucina italiana. We looked at cooking times, texture and flavour in a selection of long and short pasta, made from wheat flour substitutes such as rice, maize, quinoa and chestnuts.

About Italia!

We have a sparkling line-up of absorbing features for you to enjoy this month. We start in Trieste, a city whose remote location is no hindrance to its elegant aspect and rich cultural history. Moving west, we head to Venice, which despite the exceptional acqua alta last November is most assuredly ‘open for business’. The silk mills of Como are our next stop, to discover the proud manufacturing traditions of this luxurious and ethereal fabric. You’ll also enjoy sustainable hospitality at Borgo Pignano in the Tuscan heartland and take a gentle hike around medieval Orvieto too.
