COOKING UP SPAGHETTI - THE MEDITERRANEAN WAY
Spaghetti measure in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
Part of the Objet Bijou collection, VOILE by Paolo Gerosa is a Spaghetti Measure designed for approximately one, two or five servings. This precious utensil's function, derived from Mediterranean culinary traditions, is based on a gesture used when cooking spaghetti which has, by now, been inherited the world over. Its form evokes an image of airy lightness, a symbol of fluidity. It's a small accessory for the kitchen to be displayed in the kitchen, suspended over the scales' gravity, or given as a gift to spaghetti lovers or for those who always get the serving size wrong...
