Mailing Fresh Pasta?
My big (older, lol) sister's birthday is coming up (day after Valentine's day); she lives in South Carolina (I'm in Florida), and I wanna make her some fresh pasta (uncooked; just the cut noodles). Living where she does, she can't find a lot of good Italian food products, so I thought I'd send some to HER; she is free to do what she wants with the fresh pasta (she's a great cook but doesn't have a lot of patience to make fresh pasta; she's an Italian woman, come on).
Ok, I have a point here.....How can I send her the cut pasta (uncooked) in the mail? Do I pack it in flour to prevent moisture? Should I send it in a thermal package to keep it cold? I donno, any tips?
