A new week, a new pasta shape. To make this one, whose name shall remain secret for now, dough is first rolled into a long, thin snake.
The casual arrangement of the folds and the contrast with the texture of the wooden kneading board made for an interesting image.
This is my contribution to edition #87 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook, now organized by Cinzia of Cindystar, and hosted this week by Jasmina of Jazzy Kitchen.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to sepia (Lightroom preset Sepia).
This post contains the gallery of photo contributed to the event.
On this page, you can find out who is hosting the current and future editions of the event.
Beautiful design and great looking pasta dough! Looking forward to the naming of your secret pasta shape!

I can't even begin to guess what shape this lovely snake will be turned into! What a great photo.

Thanks Lynne. This is a tough one and I may need some time to work it out, but it's fun, as always.
Thank you, Elizabeth. It is not widely known. In fact, I just recently learned about it.

Now this is one snake I'd like to get to know!
