• Ursula and I remained adamant during the first couple of lockdowns that we preferred to wait for life to return to normal and for us to be in the classroom with everyone again. However like so many people this time round, maybe its the dark cold afternoons, actually we wanted to connect with you all and it would have to be online. Ursula was brave and held a few private classes and the response said it all. We all need company and Ursula, being the most passionate and enthusiastic person I know, is the perfect person to cheer you up and escape the world for a couple of hours of laughter and learning. We will send you a full shopping and equipment lists the week before you class. Just so you know the shopping list that we will send you for this class, is for 4 people, so you can adapt it to the number of people you are cooking for. We have calculated the food costs will be approximately £10 for 2 people so excellent value too! In this class you will be learning how to make 2 types of pasta the traditional egg pasta and also water based pasta.  Learn how to hand roll (no pasta machines needed in this class!)  Not only will she pass onto you the authentic, essential pasta-making techniques, you'll also be introduced to the history behind fresh pasta and Ursula will show you how create different pasta shapes, matching them with perfectly paired sauces. You will learn how to make many regional shapes including orecchiette and cavatelli Lots of time to ask Ursula as many questions as you can!
    • Trofie with walnut or pistachio pesto
    • Gnocchi Sardi
    • Orecchiette with chickpeas
    • Cestini ravioli with sage, pinenut and lemon butter
    What's not to love?! Not only that we are giving a percentage of the takings to the following charities: 1. The HMCK Charity launched its crowdfunding campaign 'Transforming Life Chances' to support remote learning in unprecedented times - no child should not be able to learn. 2.www.fareshare.org.uk - a charity offering a full national operation to get food to vulnerable people during the covid-19 crisis. Thank you for your support and take care - we look forward to welcoming to you to our community! Emma and Ursula x
  • Join Ursula and a journey around Minori (her home town!) on the Amalfi coast, where jagged cliffs rise boldly from the shimmering azure waters and clusters of white and ochre buildings and church towers climb up to the mountains and cascade down to the sea. Lush terraces of lemon groves, olive trees flourishing high on the cliffs among cherry, fig and tomato vines. This class will be all about the joys of my village secrets and the wonders of the Campania coastline.  We might not be able to get to Italy this year - so let Ursula transport you there!
