Inspired by Pasta

September 10, 2012

Photography by Chia Chong      Styling by Libbie Summers

Food is our trigger to all design. Its color may inform our fashion, its texture may inform our artwork. Its shape may inform our interiors and its flavor will always inform our table. This week the geometric patterns and wild personalities that make up what is the quintesential Italian meal inspire us –PASTA!! Writer, Andrea Goto, introduces us to antique Itallian pasta makers Franco and Lisa Marra of Frali Gourmet.

One of art curator Amy Zurcher’s irst words was “PA-SKET-EE” –a child’s take on spaghetti. Amy fast forwarded just a few years to introduce us to the intriguing artwork of Summer Wheat. Fashion stylist and designer, Brooke Atwood, shows you how a handbag design of your own can easily be made for you –if you know the right people and of course can design a fabulous bag! Libbie Summers shamelessly shares a recipe from her cookbook for Classic Spaghetti Alla Carbonara.

Taught to her by a somewhat mad Italian woman off the coast of Barbuda. Artist, Katherine Sandoz, is our newest addition to Salted and Styled and we welcome her with open arms and a wet kiss on both cheeks this week as she shares a pasta inspired drawing.

As always the thoughtful photography of Chia Chong is the tagliatelle that ties each story together. Get your pots boiling and drop in each day this week for a new pasta inspired post. MANGIA!
