traditional and modern tools used in Italian cuisine 

Italian cooking tools 

Many are the tools used in the Italian cooking. As already said italian cooking has a lot of variants depending on the region. Even homemade pasta is made in very different manners and using very different cooking tools. Many are also common tools used for other works, so you can make macaroni using a common knitting needle instead of the traditional torchio! Some tools are traditional and no longer used because of the evolution: the chimney is not in every kitchen, but the iron pan yes! Here below you can find both traditional and modern tools, but remember always that the creativity plays always a very important rule! Do not miss to make a recipe if you have not the specific cooking tool: see how it works and and make it with something you have near you...i.e the kneeting needle!

See how each cooking tool works following the links.
