Not applicable

Shaping pasta by hand is an art that is slowly dying: only a handful of Italian "nonnas" (grandmothers) are able to create delicious pasta from scratch using nothing but their hands. Silvana learned this fantastic and rare skill as a small child from her nonna, and now she is in London to teach you how to create more than 50 different kind of traditional pasta. During the very hands-on lessons, Silvana will be also explaining the best way to cook pasta, and how to match pasta shapes with the ideal sauce. Each month the students will explore a different kind of pasta and sauce, so to build up skills: they will also learn how to make both egg and egg-free pasta, how to mix flours and flavours to make delicious unusual pasta, how to colour the dough (black, red, purple, green, yellow). This is an exert of what you can look forward to in our lessons for the next few months: In October you'll learn how to make mouth watering ricotta and pumpkin gnocchi, served with porcini mushrooms. In November you'll go out of your comfort zone, and make strangely delicious cocoa tagliatelle, served with boar ragu. In December you'll learn a typical filled pasta from Piacenza, usually served with broth for Christmas Eve: anolini. In January you'll learn how to make pizzoccheri, a buckwheat pasta from the Lombardy region, traditionally served with potatoes, savoy cabbage and melted cheese: delicious and comforting, ideal to warm up the winter days. No need to purchase the whole course, come and join us today for a fun-filled lesson, and to enjoy at the end the fruits of your labour.
