What you'll do

We will make together fresh pasta and gnocchi.

I like slow food, feasts.
Big tables, long meals, rich conversation, and then dessert, maybe another glass of wine, coffee, bitter, another coffee...
I would like to invite you to my house to learn making pasta: recipes that I've learned from my mamma and my nonna. From them I've also learned how to embroider a tablecloth and to show respect to every meal.
Most of the ingredients that I use come directly from my allotment in Cambridge. I love the idea of preparing ancient Italian recipes with products grown locally (Km 0).

Where you'll be

We will make pasta in my kitchen, in central Cambridge. You will be able to use all my utensils and then, for an extra price of £10 we can cook the pasta and eat together (only after Friday's class).

COVID-19: if the weather is good we will stay in the garden, otherwise we will use face masks . The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 2.

Valentina’s pasta making course was a great way to spend a few hours in the company of a real Italian sharing her passion for the food she clearly loves. She guided my sister and I step by step as neither of us had made pasta before. Even when we expressed our feelings about how we didn’t like gnocchi when offered the choice of pasta or gnocchi, Valentina was more than happy to go with what we wanted. She explained about all the different types of flour, she shared stories of her childhood and growing up in the mountains of Italy. We even met her darling of a son! We would both recommend the experience and we really enjoyed meeting Valentina and seeing a different part of Cambridge.

Valentina's personality was so welcoming and it made it a lovely experience. She taught us the differences of using flours and really knew her subject. The evening was comfortable and time flew by fast. We opted for the additional sit down meal of the pasta, which I would recommend as she cooked it excellently. We had a lovely time, thank you!

Valentina was so lovely and had such a deep understanding of pasta making! She told us stories about Italy and the Italian culture. Made us feel totally welcome and relaxed with fresh tea and coffee upon arrival. Shared other recipes that she had for us to try at home. Overall, we completely loved the experience and would recommend it to anyone!
