Terra Cotta Pasta, Co.
CMNH Communications Intern, Dave Nassoura had the enviable task of sampling some of the food from one of our August 27, 2016 Dover Mini Maker Faire food vendors.
Terracotta Pasta Company is coming to the Dover Mini Maker Faire once again! I had the chance to stop by their Dover headquarters and try one of their unbelievable meat ball subs. I’m going to be honest, I haven’t always been the biggest meatball sub guy so when I heard that’s what I was having I wasn’t overly excited. But once I saw the size of the meatballs and tasted the sauce that went with it, I was hooked. Terracotta does a meatball sub the way it should be done, lots of meat, lots of sauce, and loaded with provolone. Simple, because it doesn’t have to be complicated to taste great.
I also go to sit down with long time Dover location production manager Corey who started as a cook and prep worker at the facility 10 years ago and worked his way up to a management position. The passion Corey has for food is evident just listening to him talk for 5 minutes. Terracotta loves their pastas and that really does come through in the quality and freshness of every product. Corey explained to me how much creating a quality product means to him, “that’s one of my favorite parts of the job” he said “to be able to give people something I know is a quality product and see them satisfied”.
Corey also said that despite 10 years of experience he is always learning new techniques and loves that he gets to come to work everyday and still push the boundaries of his craft and better himself. He also talked about how much of a family the company is and how everyone really comes together during the production process leading up to events. The whole Terracotta Dover team loves doing events because they get to interact with the public and see the satisfaction on people’s faces as they enjoy the product they have worked so hard to create.
Terracotta Pasta will have their famous meatball subs at Maker Faire this year along with raviolis, fresh garlic bread, and pizzas! I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Terracotta Pasta company and highly recommend checking them out next Saturday August 27th!
