Chef David Revello breaks away from the standard box of spaghetti or penne stocked on most supermarket shelves by adding some flair to his handmade food. Pasta lovers make bowties and tortellini with vibrant stripes and piles of checkered fettuccine more interesting for textures or stained glazes than saucy plates. Behind each printed dough is a study of the best ingredients for structure and color, as well as an understanding of the chemical relationship between the two that ensures each design retains its pattern throughout the cooking process.
Having amassed a large following on Instagram and TikTok, Rivillo first started the project in 2019 after the death of late artist Carlos Cruz Diez. He said in an interview, “I have reproduced ‘Cromointerferencia de color aditivo,’ an artwork I created for Simon Bolivar International Airport, one of the most representative artworks of all Venezuelans.” “Since then, my brain has never stopped to think about it and how to get different designs and patterns.”
