La Bottega del Maccherone is a dba name of FTJ Company Llc Manufacturer of gourmet pasta products, FTJ Company Llc, is fairly new, but its Italian owner, Massimo Tundo, is working to supply the most prestigious names in the foodservice industry since 2004. In 2003, Massimo and his wife Elisabetta, they decided to move to Florida, straight from Italy, to make their pasta specialties for the USA market with one motto: “Qualita’, passione e costanza”. That means: “Quality, passion and constancy”. With this mission in their hearts, they founded, since then, two pasta manufacturing facilities in Florida. In 2011 they moved forward, again, with their new company: The Pasta Guys, Inc. A unique line of filled pasta that showcases 13 brand new recipes. From the Italian classic flavors to some more sophisticated one, the recipes are made all natural, with homemade style processing and high quality ingredients.
La Bottega del Maccherone is their first retail store. This unique Italian Old-Fashioned Pasta Store were, like in the old times, everything is done by hand in order to rediscover our roots and the art of this noble profession.
Recently, they just started their "Scuola di Cucina" (Cooking Class). A culinary trip through Italy, discovering region after region, the most traditional recipes to make together, eat and have fun with their foodie followers.
It has been a long journey for these two pasta guys, and with their passion for quality and good food, probably, will never end.
