I teach a simple but comprehensive, hands-on pasta making class that will show you how easy it is to make your own pasta, and how to get great consistent results. The location is super central and easy to get to, and the class is affordable, detailed, all in mother-tongue English and all by hand - so no equipment needed at home to reproduce what we make. We each make our own portion of fresh pasta dough, roll it out by hand and cut it into tagliatelle and ravioli, then cook it all together and eat. While waiting for the dough to rest and then to dry, I'll demonstrate how to make a simple, everyday tomato sauce and how to make ravioli filling with seasonal vegetables. You'll learn some basic cooking techniques that are easily applicable to anything you're making at home and will easily up your pasta-making skills (even if using store bought pasta). Vegans have the option of making pici, a flour and water pasta typical of Tuscany or we can make other shapes like cavatelli and gnocchi Sardi. The price of the class includes the dinner. Local, organic wine is available at 3 euro a glass or 9 euro a bottle. It all takes place in our hostel's cafe and you'll be cooking and socializing with guests of all ages and nationalities.
