The production of fresh pasta is passed on from generation to generation in an Italian household. Each region has its own shapes, colors, and tastes of pasta. The true Italian pasta isn‘t boring at all, pasta entertains the world and will entertain you as well. Do you know that pasta is the most important export item in Italy? Riccardo will teach you how to deal with them.
He prepared a menu that is the essence of modern Italian cuisine. You will learn how to ideally combine seafood and pasta as well as how modern it can be. We will prepare authentic Italian potato gnocchi, not „noky“, or Viennese dumplings. We talk about sensational Riccardo’s gnocchi, light and fluffy. We will also prepare filled ravioli or passatelli. These are popular in the Marche region and are produced instead of flour from bread crumbs, eggs and Parmesan. They are traditionally used in broths and sauces.
Everything you will handle with your own hands, you have the process of making pasta and you acquire it so you can prepare your paste with joy at home as well. Cooking class includes also a degustation of wine with our sommelier.
CLASS IS IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE!
