A skilful mixture of hard and soft wheat flours, eggs (with a high number of yolks, which gives the characteristic deep yellow colour), and - traditionally - the expert hands of the women of the Langa: this is how tajarin are born, after hours of patient work, the pasta traditionally made, rolled out and cut by hand. The preparation is long, with the dough rolled out ever finer until it reaches the desired thickness; before being cut, the tajarin must be left to dry for at least half an hour so that they do not stick.

In this dish, we offer them accompanied by porcini mushroom sauce. Why are they called that? The origin of the name is controversial. Already the ancient Romans called this mushroom suillus, "pig", from which the current name derives: according to some, the name is due to its stocky and massive appearance, while for others it depends on the particular liking of the mushroom in question in the diet of pigs, fond of truffles and mushrooms.
