If you're looking for a fun way to spice up that same old pasta dish you've been making for years, consider stopping by Salem's new Jean-Louis Pasta Shop on Derby Street.
The small shop, which sells hand-piped pasta and gourmet raviolis, signature cooking oils, assorted sauces and pretty much everything you'll need to put together a memorable pasta supper, is owned by Jean-Louis Faber.
Faber, who relocated his business from upstate New York and opened his doors to customers in December, said the response from the community has been excellent.
"I think Salem is the perfect place for this business," Faber said while leading a brief tour around his new space Wednesday afternoon. "Everything here is gourmet and hand-made."
Mentionable food items we found:
- Alaskan King Crab and Mascarpone Raviolis
- Lobster and Asparagus Raviolis
- Eggplant, Sundried Tomato and Mozzerlla Raviolis
- Escargot Provencal with Ricotta Cheese Raviolis
- Fresh Egg Fettuccini
