Here is one of my favorite videos about traditional orecchiette making in Bari - a city in Puglia. I'm hoping to find this street, Arco Basso, during my research trip. Enjoy!

What is 00 flour?
The "00" primarily refers to the grind size of the flour. Type 00 ("double zero") flour is an extremely finely-ground Italian-style flour that is super white in color because almost all of the wheat's bran and germ have been removed during milling.
Do I really need a pasta machine?
Absolutely not! Get out your rolling pin, or any other cylindrical household item you might have (like a wine bottle, broomstick, or a round glass jar - just be sure to clean it well first) and roll out your dough by hand.
