About the product: With its archaic shape, plexoudes, meaning braids, from the Greek word pleko, for “knit,” is a pasta that will make a chef out of every cook. We wear our hair in braids, people all over the world used garlic braids to ward off the “evil eye,” and knead braided bread on various religious or social occasions. Agrozimi makes plexoudes pasta with premium durum wheat kneaded with well-sourced water. Short-shaped, straightforward and scrumptious.
About the company: A 40-year-long history in Pella, Macedonia, Greece. In 1969, Ghiorgos Martavaltzoglou, an Asia Minor refugee, sets up a bakery in his home village, Aravissos, Giannitsa, where he makes bread and traditional pies. A few years later, in 1974, the second generation puts up a flour mill which grinds top-quality flour. In 1980, the modest mill grows into a traditional food cottage industry. In the years to come, consumers’ trust and a rapidly increasing demand spurred the company into expanding to include the production of pasta – hilopites (Greek egg noodles), flour trahana, couscous etc.
Instructions: Fit for pasta salads, ideal for cooking in red sauces and accompanying meats, and a winner with both kids and parents.
