Val’s love for all things Italian is deeply rooted, having spent six months in Italy immersing herself in the study of both the Violin and the wines of Tuscany. However, it was the culinary wonders of Italy, particularly pasta, that ignited her passion. Her culinary journey began in the vibrant city of Chicago, where she worked alongside some of the finest chefs in the industry.
After returning home from her demanding fine dining job, Val found solace and joy in crafting pasta by hand each evening. She dubbed the process as “Play-Doh” for adults, a creative and exciting endeavor that allowed for endless possibilities. Her creations garnered high praise and encouragement from friends, family, and fellow chefs, motivating her to invest in more pasta tools and equipment, including a prestigious bronze die pasta extruder imported from Italy.
