The Corzetti

Corzetti, or “croxetti” in Genoese dialect, are a kind of fresh round shaped pasta typical of the Ligurian cuisine.
In the Tigullio Gulf area corzetti are prepared with a little wood mould that gives the pasta a typical shape and embossed decoration that helps to hold the sauce better.
During the Renaissance the local aristocrats had their own moulds that were used to stamp the corzetti with the family’s coat of arms.
In the historical centers of Genoa and Chiavari there are still some workshops that produce these handmade wood moulds.
