“"If you log on to Instagram these days, it's hard to avoid the pull of the several accounts dedicated to pasta-making. One of the best ones is run by Mateo Zielonka, a chef based in England who is working on opening his first restaurant in London (yes, it centers around pasta). Zielonka is skilled at shaping dough into every shape imaginable, from paper-thin sheets of lasagna to perfect pouches of tortellini. He does it with grace and ease and his new book, The Pasta Man, shows you how to do the same. Zielonka has convinced me that I, too, can easily make stunning striped ravioli featuring streaks of beetroot-dyed dough-all I have to do is try." - Food Wine,”
