A plate of joy

White crab contains a high level of easily digestible protein. High in long chain omega 3, polyunsaturated acids. Contains selenium, which plays a key role in the human’s antioxidant defence system, preventing damage to cells and tissues. High in phosphorus the principal mineral in building bones and teeth. Copper is involved in the absorption, storage and metabolism of iron. Saffron improves the mood.


To make pasta

If you are adventurous enough and have a pasta machine. Otherwise, use ready made linguine.

Start by dissolving a teaspoon of saffron in a tablespoon of boiling water, then mix 9 whole organic eggs and 1 yolk with the saffron. Mix the eggs and 1Kg of '00' flour with a fork.

Nead the pasta until smooth. Allow to rest for 1/2 an hour wrapped in cling film. Then roll out into sheets, allow to dry a little. Cut into linguine, dust with polenta flour to separate the noodles. Weigh into 100/120g nests. Keep in the fridge or freeze for later use.
