About your host, Le Orecchiette di Nonna Isabella
Annalisa considers herself very lucky to have learnt how to make fresh pasta from her grandmother, Nonna Isabella.
Growing up in Puglia, Southern Italy, her family’s kitchen on Sunday mornings was buzzing with flour, laughter, and gossip. Nonna Isabella taught her how to make orecchiette, the typical pasta shape from Puglia and Basilicata, as well as many other traditional shapes and recipes.
The tradition of home-made pasta has accompanied Annalisa throughout her childhood up until now, as she continues to share it with friends and loved ones. Many of them have wanted to learn how to make their own orecchiette over the years. This is why Annalisa's classes started: to give a taste of Nonna Isabella’s buzzing kitchen and pass on the skills of pasta-making beyond her family.
We provide the tools, ingredients and aprons. You just bring your lovely self!
