Many Istrian specialties are adorned with top quality homemade pasta, and such are our šurle. Pasta is undoubtedly a symbol of Italy, where the preparation of fresh home-made pasta changes from the north to the south, just like its name itself. Shurle is a pasta that has been produced in Italy for a long time, the name of which varies from region to region; in the south of Italy, in Sicily, it is a typical pasta they call ‘casareccia’ / homemade, while in sun-drenched Tuscany, they call it ‘strozzapreti’.
We named them after an old, traditional Istrian musical instrument – šurle. It is a typical Istrian instrument that is made of two separate, wooden pipes connected in a ‘didak’ through which air is blown. Because of its loudness, it is most often used as a dance instrument, and very rarely it can be combined with Istrian mih.
Tradition and culture have always been and still are a frequent inspiration for numerous artists. In this case, traditional music and instruments were the notes that opened up space for our imagination and creativity and inspired us to name our experience of tradition – pasta.
Šurle pasta has a smooth texture and a twisted shape, which is why it pairs well with sauces. Absorbing sauce, with meat or prawns, provides more intense and stronger flavors and represents a real Mediterranean dish. They are made from high-quality wheat flour – without eggs, and in our assortment, in addition to “ordinary” šurle, we also have a real spring mix – asparagus šurle.
