What you will do

3 hour class

Daytime

Learn the dying art of making pasta entirely by hand and enjoy a truly unique experience in a relaxed, homely atmosphere, where you'll learn all there is to know about pasta and will create some of the most unusual and beautiful pasta shapes, traditional in Italy but virtually unknown in the UK.

Each month there is a new pasta to learn, new flours and flavours to explore (scroll down for 2019 pasta list).

The class will begin with a brief introduction to the history of pasta and why there are 2 ways of making pasta (egg and egg-free). You will then learn to mix different flours (according to the pasta of the month) and other ingredients, the best ways of kneading, and all the secrets to obtaining the perfect dough. As the dough is proofing, you'll learn what to look for when buying pasta in supermarkets.

There will be cooking demonstration of the sauce that will be served with the pasta followed by learning to techniques to handle, pull, and fold the dough to obtain the pasta shape (this class is to make the pasta completely by hand so there will be no machine used!). Finally you'll be taught the best cooking technique for the perfect pasta al dente.

Finish the class by enjoying the delicious fruits of your labour together with the other guests, Italian style.

2019 pasta list (first quarter) January: Culurgiones, a typical pasta from sardinia, filled with potatoes, saffron, cheese, and mint, served with tomato sauce February: Caramelised onion flavoured cappellacci de' briganti, served with ricotta and tomato sauce March: Caramelle pasta, filled with spinach and ricotta, and served with melted butter and sage April: Lemon flavoured strozzapreti, served with creme fraiche and prawns sauce

Did you know?

If you have ever enjoyed spaghetti with tomatoes sauce, you'll be surprised that it's a relatively recent addition to the Italian cuisine. Tomatoes are originally from America and only arrived in Europe in 1540. Early tomatoes were very high in solanine, a poisonous substance, and had a bright yellow colour, hence the Italian name for it, pomodoro, meaning golden apple. Tomato plants were used to be gifted to young women as a gallant love token by the French gentlemen.

Silvana was very sweet and lovely. The booking was made in conjunction with my friend's birthday and we ended up having a private class of our own! When we arrived, Silvana had already prepared the potatoes in advance of our gnocchi making session, which was very thoughtful of her. She was very patient as we were quite slow in pasta making. We also had a very informational session as she explained the history of pasta and her family's history relations with Pasta making. She also gave us very practical advice in choosing good quality pasta from stores. We also learnt how to make pesto sauce from scratch and it was the best authentic pesto sauce I've ever had. Thoroughly enjoyed the session! Unfortunately she is moving away from the UK from summer next year. So do book any pasta making sessions with her quickly!! Thank you so much again Silvana, we had a great time!!
