2.5 hours
Italian
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Begin your experience with bread and olive oils from multiple regions of Italy, starting off your meal the way most Italians like to. Then, we'll transition to the kitchen where we will begin creating our pasta. I will walk you through the different types of pastas and their typical sauce pairings and the different types of flours and their use cases. Then we will begin making two different pasta shapes: spinach tagliatelle, a long noodle from the Emilia-Romagna region, and lorighittas, a rope like noodle from the Island of Sardegna. Following the completion of our pastas, we will bring some noodles to a boil and enjoy with light sauces, some warm conversation, and more bread to sop up our ragu.

Please note: this class takes place in my home in Boston's historic North End.

I am an at home chef and a pasta connoisseur. My dad is a first generation southern Italian and has eleven siblings. Growing up, we learned fresh pasta and authentic sauces could solve almost anything. During my studies, I lived in Tuscany for six months, studying the culture of northern Italy and taking classes learning to craft Tuscan dishes. I am well versed in the light sauces and long noodles of the south of the peninsula from my experience growing up and knowledgeable about the meaty ragus and thick pastas of the north from my formal education.

We had an amazing time on our anniversary. Sophia was a great and a patient teacher who answered all of our questions. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy a wonderful weekend evening in the North end, one of the best experiences
