Each and Every One is Unique

Each and every batch of our pasta is always a little unique.

Everything from the amount of residual moisture in our flour to the ambient humidity present during our multi-day "low and slow" drying process causes each batch of our pasta to be a little unique. As a result, your incredibly good pasta may also have slight variations in color and shape.

How We Do Shipping

Our multi-day, artisanal approach to making dried pasta allows us to make incredibly good pasta, but it also has a downside. It limits how much we can make and have on hand.

We collect orders every Monday morning in order to begin the process of preparing your pasta to be shipped out mid-week using USPS priority mail.

This allows us to get our pasta to you within a few days while also continuing to work on future orders in the kitchen.

About Our Ingredients

Our focus is to make incredible pasta using local, organic, and heirloom ingredients. Almost all of our flours are certified organic or follow certifiable organic / sustainable farming practices. They are pesticide- and germicide-free, GMO-free, heritage-grain, and stone-cold milled. We proudly work with Carolina Ground, a woman-owned mill dedicated to improving North Carolina-grown wheat from the ground up, and other small mills in the region. All eggs come from small, local farmers to ensure the chickens have a pasture-based diet, resulting in healthier birds, healthier eggs, and some of the best tasting eggs available. All powders, purees, or flavorings are from organic or clean sources.

About Us

Foggy Mountain Pasta is the result of a life-long passion with food.

The largest room in Gabriel's family home is the kitchen. So it is not surprising that some of his earliest memories are of good, fresh, and simple food. Although Gabriel started cooking professionally while in college, his true professional journey began when luck and providence came together, giving him the opportunity to work at Il Cibreo in Florence, Italy. This intense immersion in Tuscan and Italian food, wine, and culture was the foundation for Gabriel's work to this day. Wanting to gain more experience and live in the heart of modern professional cooking, Gabriel traveled to Paris and studied savory and pastry cooking at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris, earning the prestigious Le Grand Diplome. He returned to Northern Italy to study at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners and worked in multiple Michelin-starred restaurants. Back in the States, Gabriel went to the San Francisco Bay Area in order to work in the then-emerging "farm-to-table" scene, pursuing opportunities to work at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants, Oliveto, Auberge du Soleil, and with other well-known chefs, farmers, and winemakers. 

​Foggy Mountain Pasta is an expression of our greatest hope for food: to bring happiness to a home by the sharing of food that is comforting to the mind, soul, and heart while also fostering a local community that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable.
