What you'll do

** 25% OFF WHEN BOOKING TWO PEOPLE AT ONCE- IT'S A PRIVATE CLASS **

We've got a lot to do, so we'll jump right in to the flour and mix up our dough.

While that's resting, we'll work on a delicious authentic homemade sauce of your choice: Arrabbiata (a spicy, garlic and tomato based sauce), Limone e Burro (a creamy lemon butter sauce), or my husband's favorite, Alio, Olio, e Peperoncino (garlic, olive oil, and hot chili peppers).

Next we'll roll out the dough into thin sheets, using a hand crank pasta machine, ready for cutting or shaping. We'll cut some into spaghetti, and we'll learn how to make farfalle (bow ties) and ravioli. Then we'll toss them in the pot for just a few minutes.

Now for the best part: we'll sit down and enjoy our delicious creation. Buon appetito! You'll also have enough pasta to bring a pound home to enjoy later.

Take home all the recipes which also include the following two sauces: Amatriciana (a spicy, bacon and tomato based sauce), Carbonara (a creamy sauce with pancetta and eggs).

Please contact us if you desire a different time for scheduling, we'll do our best to accommodate you.

Classes are also available in Spanish.
Other things to note
It will take approx. 2 1/2 - 3 hours including the tasting. Most of our learning will be done standing, but we can provide a stool to make you more comfortable. We're fully vaccinated.

I lived in Northern Italy for nearly seven years and learned to make homemade pasta and traditional sauces from our lovely neighbor, Giuliana. She made pasta from scratch every day and it was fascinating to watch her, and eventually I lent a hand. She taught me that pasta wasn't hard to make, and well worth the effort. I love making pasta at home, and my family enjoys it so much more than store bought.

What an incredible experience; this is something we will truly never forget! Not only did we learn a unique new skill, we had a wonderful time doing it! Debi is a phenomenal and engaging teacher, and both she and her husband Mike are truly interesting people and excellent conversationalists. To make it even more amazing, their house is absolutely stunning with a picturesque view of the mountains and sunset to enjoy as you work. Thank you both for opening your home and sharing your knowledge with us!

My mom and I had a wonderful time learning to make homemade pasta with Debi and Mike! Debi is very knowledgeable about the process and had many stories to tell us of her years spent living in Italy. They had fresh ginger peach tea ready for us, took pictures as we worked, and all finished with a delicious pasta dish we got to make! So so fun! They were gracious hosts and made us feel we were old friends. Don’t miss out on such a wonderful experience!
