• Ursula grew up amongst the sun-drenched lemon groves and vineyards of Italy’s rugged Amalfi Coast. She learned to cook as a child by assisting her grandmother preparing the traditional family dishes. Not only will she pass onto you the authentic, essential pasta-making techniques, you'll also be introduced to the history behind fresh pasta.   Learn how to make the traditional egg-based pasta but also water-based pasta made with semolina flour as well as the appropriate sauce for each pasta shape. We will then all sit down and enjoy the following dishes:
    • Perfectly simply but utterly delicious signature tomato sugo
    • Asparagus and mint
    • Caci e pepe
    Lots of time to ask Ursula as many questions as you can - worth every penny!  Oh and you don't need a pasta machine because we will teach you how to hand roll too.  Book fast to avoid disappointment!
