“Yarra Valley Pasta is an institution” – Matt Preston
Lumo has gone a step further as the major partner of Flavour Exchange spring, launching the Regional Showcase which will shine a spotlight on the Yarra Valley. This means producers that may not have been able to take part, can now make it to the CBD and have their product tasted and purchased by crowds drawn to the event.
“Lumo has taken a real hands-on approach to support our local producers and sent 17 staff to the Yarra Valley to help producers pick, make and pack their respective produce. One of these producers is the family run Yarra Valley Pasta, founded by The Colaneri Family in May 1997,” said Caroline Ryan, founder and director at integrated marketing studio Dig+Fish, who operate the quarterly event.
A family of visionaries, the Colaneri family has steadfastly pursued a simple philosophy: to make delicious, high quality pasta products while following an artisan approach to their craft, based on the unique culinary traditions learned from their Italian ancestors.
They pride themselves in creating products with genuine flavours from the Molise region of Italy. Only the finest ingredients are used in their pasta, gnocchi, ravioli and sauces. Their house made products are preservative, colour and filler free. You’ll find their traditional and gourmet options used at leading restaurants in Melbourne and of are course available for purchase by the public. As Matt Preston says, “Yarra Valley Pasta is an institution”.
