Innovation and tradition
Semola’s kitchen is an artful balance between innovation an Italian culinary tradition.
The ability of exciting own takes on tradition, the dedication in choosing high quality raw materials coming directly from Italy and from the local area, in full respect of the seasonality so that their impact on the environment is as low as possible, are the ingredients of every dish prepared with great care and attention, bringing flavours, scents and colours into an unforgettable encounter between feelings and emotions.
When attention to allergies and proper nutrition become more and more thorough, it is helpful to know the difference between "flour" and "semola"(semolina). The difference lies in the starting product: soft grain if we are talking about flour produce, and durum wheat for semolina produce.
White flour has several numeric characters ranging from "00" to "2": these indicate how finely the wheat was ground. The more the wheat is processed, the fewer vitamins and minerals are left.
The semolina, however, has a more yellowish colour, thanks to the antioxidants within, and a more granular and coarse texture, characterised by a low refining of hard wheat. For this reason, semolina has a lower glycemic index, a higher fibre content, and is more easily digested.
The grains and flour we use are preservatives-free and organic products coming exclusively from Italian producers.
