The Bbusa Connection: A Nature-Inspired Technique

The name “Busiata” is derived from the wooden stick, or “Bbusa” (how do you say it in Sicilian dialect, doubling the dd and bb), used in its preparation. The Bbusa is a wild shrub found in the mountains, particularly in the “Ddisa” plain. The plant produces an inflorescence, which, when dried in the summer, is harvested by shepherds during their pastures. This unique tool adds a touch of nature’s inspiration to the pasta-making process.
