  • In Italy hardly a meal is served without pasta, it is the most important part of the multi course meal.   This class is perfect for all levels,  as with over 20 years experience of teaching, you are in the most experienced hands with Ursula!  This class is an absolute MUST!! If you have made pasta from scratch before and want to improve your pasta making techniques this is the class for you!  We will be making pasta from scratch but concentrating more the myriad of shapes (about 350!!) including garganelli, trofie, gnocchi Sarde, orrechiette, cavatappi, fusilli and trofie.  Not only that also learn how to create coloured pasta with  spinach, beetroot or maybe even saffron. You will learn how to make two types of pasta in this class the traditional egg pasta but also the water based semolina style pasta - each shape differs with its preference to a specific type of pasta!!
