This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps.
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
Our founder, Alessandro, hails from Genova in the Italian region of Liguria and was disappointed with the fresh pasta available in the UK, machine-made and a world away from the pasta of his youth, handmade by his nonna.
Describe your box in three words?
Fresh, simple, delicious.
Where did your box name come from?
As an Italian, our founder is simply evangelical about pasta!
Are you a creator or curator?
What was your most popular box?
Our special 4th July Italiano-Americano box.
How many people are involved with producing your subscription box?
Our fantastic kitchen team of four.
Which subscription boxes do you subscribe to?
Currently none, but as a team, we are always trying out all the subscription boxes out there from food to flowers.
Name a celebrity subscriber you’d love to have as a customer?
Of course, we'd love to get some Italian chefs on board like Gennaro Contaldo and Giorgio Locatelli. But all the team have a real soft spot for Nigella too.
If you could put anything in your box, with money or scarcity no object, what would it be?
A tiny Italian chef in every box!
