We love Pasta!

VIRTUAL COOKING CLASS – HANDMADE PASTA

Discover the simplicity of fresh pasta and learn how to make it, too!

Immerse yourself in a private pasta-making class and learn the secrets of the region’s most famous pasta dishes, then taste the fruit of your labour accompanied by a glass of red and white Tuscan wine. During the lesson, our chef will reveal the tricks of the trade of some authentic regional pasta recipes. Have fun putting your cooking skills to the test.

The first step is to prepare the dough. Our chef will show how to place the flour on a board, make a well in the center and crack the eggs into it and then, mix everything, incorporating the flour a little at a time, until everything is combined.

Once you’ve made your dough you need to knead and work it with your hands to develop the gluten in the flour. When the dough is ready, we will roll it out with a rolling pin in a way known only to the elderly, then we will cut the dough, to obtain the desired shape. We will make noodles, ravioli, tagliolini etc.
Finally, we will cook fresh pasta in the kitchen with a nice sauce. All accompanied by the tasting of excellent Tuscan wines.

  Cooking class is fully interactive.
✓  Chef accompanies you throughout the entire process.
✓  Ask as many questions as you want!

Duration: 1.5 Hours

Our cooking classes are tailored around you: we will discuss the menu in advance to meet your preferences and needs, always taking into account seasonal availability, then we will share with you the list of the ingredients to buy.
