Waveney Mill - Girandole Pasta
Girandole is our take on the traditional fusilli shape, which is literally translated to ‘little spindles’ in Italian.
Fusilli comes from “fuso” meaning spindle. As history states, fusilli pasta shapes were hand made using a spindle rod that was used to spin strips of pasta into the corkscrew shape we all know and love today.
Thanks to its twisted shape, our girandole is the perfect choice when it comes to holding a variety of sauces and dressings; anything from thin, simple olive oil dressings to thicker, chunkier sauces, thanks to its compact spring shape which “traps” sauces within its spirals.
Perfect for vegetable, meat or fish-based dishes, make girandole a cupboard staple today.
Waveney Mill has Robert Clarke (a Victorian farmer, miller and baker) to thank for its unique location. Situated close to the idyllic tranquillity of the Norfolk Broads where the river Yare scythes its way through the wheat fields of Norfolk towards Norwich and beyond, and yet having immediate access to the waterways of the world from Yarmouth’s ancient harbour.
For over 140 years Waveney Mill has stood proudly on the banks of the river Yare, at the centre of Waveney Valley, an area rich in wheat cultivation with a history stretching back to Saxon times.
