Mill La Selva d'Abruzzo is an excellence point of Moscufo. Grandfather Luigi Di Massimo founded the mill in 1937. Now his grandson Luciano leads it, producing three types of extra virgin olive oil. This family farming is located near the beautiful Abbey of Santa Maria del Lago (St. Mary upon the Lake).Discover Abruzzese culinary traditions and enjoy a special cooking class. Learn how to prepare Chitarra pasta:  pour the flour on working surface and make a fountain with a hole in the middle, then add the other ingredients, knead the dough by pressing, folding and working with the "cannelle de le sagne" (rolling pin)  to make "the pettele" (sheet of pasta). It’s time to lay the "pettele" on the "maccarunare" (a tool with many strings, like a guitar, that’s why this pasta is called chitarra pasta) and with the rolling pin, we will have "li maccarune" (chitarra pasta). Then, you will learn to prepare a typical Abruzzo sauce, using veal, pork and a piece of mutton, olive oil, onion, tomato, pecorino cheese, and hot peppers.Once the work is completed, taste your own delicious chitarra maccarune with your old and new friends.
