Did you know that October 17 is #NationalPastaDay? It’s a great day to celebrate one of the world’s favorite foods.
Pasta dates back to 1154 A.D. Italy. In fact, Thomas Jefferson introduced pasta to the Americas after tasting it in Naples, Italy when he was the American Ambassador to France in 1785.
There are over 600 pasta shapes in the world, each with a different name. Check out #ClayCafeStudios hand-painted pasta bowl for some of our favorites.
FUN FACT: A typical Italian person eats over 60 lbs. of pasta a year. A typical American eats around 20 lbs. a year. Wow!
So join us for #NationalPastaDay and come paint a bowl to hold your favorite noodles!
