Chinese noodles are made with soft wheat and are mainly white. Yao Hongying has an organic farm in southern China and produces green organic noodles made with the extract of the Dendrobium orchid, a common plant in Asia. 

Her market is expanding and she travels to Pienza in Tuscany to understand how Italians make their pasta in so many different forms. Meeting with Andrea Grappi, Yao learns about the harder, durum wheat he uses and how he gives different forms to his pasta. For Amedeo experimenting a pasta with a herbal extract is rather enriching, both at a professional and personal level.
