Techniques » Squid Ink Pasta Dough
Adding color to fresh pasta opens up a world of ideas for sauce, meat, herb or cheese pairings. Roberta Dowling, the creative force behind The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, shares her technique for fresh pasta dough with squid ink. The transformation of flour, eggs and salt into a smooth jet-black ball of dough with just a small amount of the ink is fascinating. After a brief rest in the refrigerator, you're free to roll and shape the dough any way you like.
