HANDS ON PASTA CLASS 101
Time & Location
About the Event
Launa - I am a fourth generation Italian American. In our large Italian family, homemade pasta is #1. Every holiday, every gathering, every random dinner night, you will most likely find pasta. Our family takes pride in passing the pasta machine down the family tree but as our fast-paced lives progress many things take us out of the kitchen. Traditions become memories and stories of generations past and family techniques, inadvertently, become lost. I have been trained, my whole life, by three generations of strong Italian women with traditional techniques to making homemade pasta noodles. My grandma patiently taught me to pay close attention to the type of flour selected, the weight of the egg, the temperature of the room, the moisture in the dough, the amount of time you handle the dough, and the most important part; the thickness of the dough. The ingredients may be the same as dried pasta, but the taste is better, and the texture is better. For centuries our family has put their heart, their soul and our heritage into the noodles, and now I share my experiences with you first hand!
In this class, you will be making your own homemade fettuccine using Launa’s family’s simple pasta dough recipe. So fun !! You will learn a hands-on simple technique and be assisted through the process. At the end of class, we will all enjoy fresh homemade pasta noodles Launa has made for the class, a traditional balsamic & olive oil salad, fresh local bread, dessert and don’t forget the wine. Everyone will get to take their homemade fettuccine home along with a recipe card for the pasta dough, homemade tomato basil sauce, and the salad dressing. Come dressed for fun and yes you will get flour on you. Prize for the best apron.
