The Shape of Pasta Class

May 18 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

This pasta class features the finest dried artisan noodles and the most luscious homemade Italian sauces.

Fri. May 18, 2018 (5:30-9:00pm)

In this 3 1/2 hour, semi hands-on class,  I’ll share with you three of the best dried pastas available, including an ancient whole wheat pasta from Sicily, a special durum wheat semolina pasta from Gragnano and one organic  gluten free pasta from South America. We will also make three delicious Italian sauces that complement the unique shapes of our pasta. Two of the sauces taste like you’ve been slaving over the stove for hours, but both of them actually come together quickly. The third sauce is a rich, meaty one (my favorite) that takes time and a little extra love.  If you happen to be on a gluten-free diet, we can accommodate your needs in this class, as at least one of the appetizers, the garden fresh salad and one of the desserts do not involve flour. 

Class is hands-on and intimate so you will be sure to leave with recipes and skills you can apply at home.
