Chef or Death #144 – Jesse Albertini – Sfoglina Pasta Company

Jesse2019

I like New Yorkers. They have grit. And, now more than ever grit is what’s going to get us through this.

Jesse Albertini, a native New Yorker, moved to Colorado in 2004 after graduating college. She came for a winter, decided to stay for a summer, and sixteen years later, is still in love with this State.

Dedicating herself to the hospitality industry, Jesse has
worked her way through the kitchen ranks of many well known and respected Denver restaurants.

Jesse is getting ready to launch her first solo venture, Sfoglina Pasta Company. Sfoglina is the term for the women that make pasta in Italy. The name is a nod to both the tradition behind the art of making pasta and that it is a female-owned company.

Sfoglina will mill the grains for the flour and slow dry the pasta producing a high quality, nutrient-dense final product. Further, demonstrating her commitment to Colorado, grains will be sourced locally when possible, and a portion of all proceeds will go to local
Denver non-profits.
