Upon additional investigation it appears that Italians actually do take a robust stance on breaking pasta before putting it in the pot.

As Italian baker Carolina Garofani explains to Slate, “let me clarify this from the double viewpoint of being each Italian and a cook … the cause why you shouldn’t break pasta is that it’s supposed to wrap round your fork.

“That’s how lengthy pasta is meant to be eaten. You rotate your fork, and it must be lengthy sufficient to each stick to itself and get entangled in a manner that it doesn’t slip off or lets sauce drip from it. The pasta have to be cooked proper to enable the sauce to stick to it, and the sauce must be thick sufficient to each stick to the pasta and never drip, splatter, or dribble.

“In most Asian cultures, noodles are slurped right off the bowl and cut with our teeth. Not in this case. Long pasta needs to be completely secure and rolled around the fork. It’s the least messy way to eat it. If you break your long pasta in half, you’ll have shorter strands that are a pain to be eaten and then you get the people who [shudder] use a knife to eat spaghetti”.

We can solely think about how he’d reply when you pulled out a knife to eat your spaghetti. Picture: TikTookay

It’s some extent that’s reiterated by An American in Rome, who writes, in her article The ten commandments of cooking pasta like an Italian

Thou shalt not break thine pasta. Ever. I don’t care if it’s long, that just means you did not put enough water in the pot. If you hold up a packet of spaghetti and break it over the pot, that cracking sound you hear is the sound of 1,000 Italian grandmother’s hearts breaking. (Just kidding, you would probably get straight up smacked for being so ridiculous). Let me repeat: you do not break the pasta. The pasta is produced in that size for a reason, and all you need is a tall pot and a bit of practice swirling it around your fork”.

To recover from the wave of guilt and embarrassment we’re having for the instances we’ve damaged pasta before boiling it, listed here are another points of Italy we’re lacking, courtesy of TikTookay.
