About:

The Sporkful is one of the most listened to food podcasts today, with notable guests including Rachel Maddow, David Chang, Samin Nosrat, Nigella Lawson, Alton Brown, Carla Hall, Rosie Perez, Jim Gaffigan, Weird Al, Kwame Onwuachi and W. Kamau Bell, among many others. It has received numerous accolades including a James Beard Award, Webby Award, and Saveur Award for Best Food Podcast. Host Dan Pashman is also well-known as the creator of the viral pasta shape cascatelli, which has been featured on the cover of TIME magazine as one of the Best Inventions of the year, on CBS This Morning, NBC’s The TODAY Show and Good Morning America, among others. It was even picked up globally by news outlets in Italy, France, Germany, the U.K., Spain, and Israel. Dan is known for his passionate and idiosyncratic approach to food, and for changing the way we think about pasta shapes. In March 2024, Dan releases his first ever cookbook: Anything’s Pastable: 81 Inventive Pasta Recipes for Saucy People (William Morrow, March 2024) where he will reinvent how we think of pasta sauces with a foreword by bestselling author J. Kenji López-Alt.”


About the Book:

When Sporkful podcast host Dan Pashman launched cascatelli, a new pasta shape he invented that he designed to hold tons of sauce, stay on the fork, and be incredibly satisfying to bite into, it went viral and was named one of TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year. VICE called him “a modern pasta legend.”

But as Dan was flooded with pictures of what people were making with his pasta, he was disappointed to see how limited the dishes were: tomato sauce, meat sauce, mac and cheese, over and over. A few party animals made pesto.

So Dan set out to revolutionize people’s conceptions of pasta sauces, just as he did with pasta shapes. He traveled across Italy and worked with an all-star team of recipe developers in the US to create a new kind of pasta sauce cookbook for people bored with the old standbys. That’s why there’s no 3-hour marinara recipe or fresh pasta made from scratch in this book. No photos of nonnas caked in flour or the hills of Tuscany. Instead it’s time to show the world—Anything’s Pastable.

With an incredible array of recipes, Dan showcases the limitless pastabilities when you really know how to use your noodle.


About the Author:

Dan Pashman is the creator and host of the two-time James Beard and Webby Award–winning podcast The Sporkful, which he says is not for foodies, it’s for eaters. He’s also the creator and host of Cooking Channel’s You’re Eating It Wrong. In 2021 Dan launched the new pasta shape cascatelli, a viral sensation that TIME Magazine named one of the Best Inventions of the Year. The story of Dan’s three-year quest to create cascatelli was told in The Sporkful podcast’s “Mission: ImPASTAble” series, which the New York Times named one of the 10 Best Podcasts of 2021. Cascatelli is now in more than 3000 stores across America. In early 2023 Dan received international media attention when he launched two more pastas—obscure Italian shapes called vesuvio and quattrotini—that he produces with the artisanal pasta company Sfoglini, who also make the original version of cascatelli.
