Ettore Bugatti perfectionist and inventor
Ettore Bugatti loved pasta more than anything and always had it freshly prepared by an Italian cook. For this he needed chicken eggs. He then decided to keep chickens himself and set up his own little chicken farm. But at least they were fresh and he was no longer dependent on the farmers.
The pasta machine with a steering wheel
One day Bugatti’s cook complained about a malfunctioning pasta machine in the kitchen. Since Ettore Bugatti was not about to go without his beloved pasta, he designed a new machine – one that was easy to use, aesthetically attractive and capable of producing the best pasta far and wide. The design reflected Bugatti’s automobile roots: instead of an ordinary handwheel, a Bugatti Type 46 steering wheel served as a crank to operate the machine and convert the dough into pasta.
