What you will do

2 hour workshop

Daytime

Pasta making workshops are super entertaining for kids and adults, but are also a great way to introduce kids to healthy and tasty food.

How is the class structured?

On arrival, you will find the ingredients laid out and ready to be used. The class will kick off with some fun fact about the "Italian" and the origins of pasta. Then, I will explain what ingredients are used, where ingredients come from, where to get the best ingredients from and why to use those specific ingredients.

The workshop is entirely hands-on. After a demonstration of how to make the dough, everyone will make his/her own pasta. You can make different shapes of pasta: scialatielli, busiate, maccherroni, spaghetti, colourful pasta, tagliatelle (cut pasta) and gnocchetti.

After all the hard work, everyone gets to take the pasta home.

What do kids learn?

  • How much flour and eggs we use
  • How to correctly knead the pasta dough
  • How many minutes you should knead the dough to obtain a smooth and elastic dough
  • What kind of flours you should use for a perfect dough
  • How to shape the dough to obtain the pasta -How to make colourful pasta

Extra skills for the kids:

  • They find out where the ingredients come from
  • They learn where to source the best organic, local and seasonal produce in your area
  • They learn how to knead the dough and what ingredients to use
  • They learn to focus and follow directions
  • They learn new words and to measure stuff
  • They learn to be organised and multi-tasking

Did you know?

Did you know that the fact that Marco Polo brought the pasta recipe from China might be a myth? In reality, the pasta pre-existed Marco Polo. The pasta dates much further back, back to ancient Etruscan civilizations, which made pasta by grinding several types of cereal and grains and then mixed them with water, a blend that was later on cooked producing a tasty and nutritious food product.

Vittoria was just fantastic! All of the children had a great time at the party. She made everyone feel special. The class was smooth and seamless and enjoyed by all! I would happily recommend her parties to children of all ages.

Looking for alternate activities for my nephew and niece of 6 and 8 years old, I took them to Vicky's pasta making class. It turned out to be a great experience. The kids are taught how to mix and knead the dough, and eventually turn them into pasta. Their eyes simply lit up when Vicky demonstrated the magic of rolling the pasta dough into the machine, and out came the perfectly shaped spaghetti and tagliolini! There is certainly a high level of enthusiasm and enjoyment in the room. Towards the end of the class all the kids sit down together to enjoy their hand made pasta. It is a great way to entertain the kids and teach them about food (I noticed Vicky uses high quality and organic ingredients too). The kids are asking to return for another class already!

It was great learning how to make pasta from scratch, the Italian way. The teacher was great and even showed the children what wheat looked like before it was ground into flour. The venue was great with cool drinking water and clean washroom facilities .

I took the workshop with my children. It was brilliant! We learnt to make pasta from scratch something I never did before! Vicky is a great teacher very friendly and welcoming. She’s great with children, she’s helped us especially as I had more then one child with me. We also made two sauces that were delicious. All the ingredients fresh. She took into account our dietary needs and made it vegan. My children and I loved the class and highly recommend it. It’s such a great family friendly class. I will definitely attend another workshop soon.

Our daughter Olivia loves pasta, but making it herself was even better!! And it tasted so good! Vittoria is great with kids: fun loving, enthusiastic and patient! I can highly recommend her classes (the only downside: you then don't want to eat store bought pasta anymore, as Vittoria's home made pasta tastes too good)

My 4 year old and 7 year old had a wonderful morning learning how to make colourful pasta with Vicky. Vicky was incredibly engaging and skilfully taught the children to make their own pasta from start to finish. They loved getting stuck in and particularly enjoyed rolling out the pasta. We all got to taste it at the end of the workshop and it was delicious!

My 8 year old and her friends had a wonderful time making rainbow pasta and eating it! My daughter has severe food allergies and Victoria catered for her beautifully and safely which was so special for us all as we did not think that a birthday party themed around a food workshop would actually be an option for us. My high energy 3 year old enjoyed the event too and manage to keep his concentration on all the various steps! fantastic

My two daughters (9 and 6) had a fantastic time at the Kids Pasta Making Workshop. Vicky was great with the kids, showing them all how to make their very own pasta dough and how to use the pasta machines. The girls learned how to make several different types of pasta (from spaghetti to tagliatelle and even farfalle) and they loved the different (natural) colours! And we all got to try the pasta with a delicious home-made sauce at the end! I thought it was good value for the two kids too. Highly recommended! Thanks!

Good Points: - Very well structured course - Clean and colourful environment - Instructor Vittoria is passionate and friendly - Juices and freshly baked bread was provided Bad Points: - The class size of 8 was a bit too big. It would have been perfect for 6 - Directions of to the place is not clear as you have to enter through a back entrance

Family Pasta Making Workshop by Pasta 'n Play - food in London

About your host, Pasta 'n Play

I am Vicky and my passion for cooking started more than 30 years ago when I used to watch my Grandmother preparing food for our family. I was not only watching but on some lucky occasions, I took part in the process. My tasks as Nonna’s assistant chef were messing around with flour and playing with the dough. I started learning like this, having fun and playing and this is how my cooking classes are. I now want to spread the passion for good and healthy food in London. I moved here 6 years ago and since then I have been feeding hundreds of people using the techniques learned from my grandmother. I have a background in tax law. I worked as a tax advisor during the week and cookery tutor during the weekend for almost three years, until pregnant when I decided to quit the office job for a more adventurous career. I decided to start my own cookery school. I tested the recipes on friends first and then started advertising the class: online, through directories and social media; on the street, with flyers and through word of mouth. The classes grew to the point where I was running them every weekend. “I enjoy it so much and it fits so well around my family. I am finally doing the job of my dreams” says Vicky. My mission is to educate people on how much fun it can be to cook together with family and friends. But the benefits don’t stop there...It also makes everyone eat healthier food! The recipes I cook are simple but extremely tasty, made only with the best ingredients. I take great care of the environment using only organic products and carefully picking my suppliers. I have a zero-waste policy in place and the use of plastic is reduced where possible. I strongly believe that everyone should have access to good and healthy food and for this reason, I am an active volunteer in the local community. I collaborate with the Camden Health Kick, a project that aims to offer free healthy activities to increase the health of the community members.
