Orecchio is the Italian word for ear, and orecchiette—little ears—get their name from their resemblance. They’re eaten all over Italy, but they’re particularly popular in the traditional homeland of Puglia and Basilicata. The secret to the recipe is having the right consistency in the dough, which mustn’t be too hard or too soft: and it takes practice! Come and learn the traditional method of making orecchiete with the Cesarine and impress all your friends!
