Class Description

Fresh pasta is a delight, and learning to make it is a life skill that stays with you.  During this afternoon workshop, we look at all things pasta – from mixing and kneading pasta dough, beetroot infused and standard egg pasta, various rolling techniques, filling, shaping and chef will demonstrate some sauces.

Sophia Loren once said ‘Everything you see I owe to Spaghetti.’ Whilst we can’t promise you a glittering career in Hollywood after our pasta course, we can promise that you will learn how to make Italy’s staple food by hand and using some traditional kit. Our Chef will show you how to mix, knead, bash, squash and shape the dough into several of the most popular varieties – spaghetti, farfalle and ravioli.

It’s hungry work making pasta so you during the evening there is the opportunity to eat some of your hard work…Chef usually likes to demo a sauce or something to impress to go with your pasta creations.
