San Gimignano Cooking classes, Tuscany
PASTA MAKING CLASS
The experience of handmade pasta is certainly the most suited to become familiar with the basics of our cuisine and with our beautiful country, since pasta in its various types is the common thread between all of our regions: from north to south, crossing the center of Italy and reaching the islands. If you pay specific attention, you will notice that wherever you taste this delicacy you immediately recognize the culinary history of the place. This is why we highly recommend for you our Pasta making class in San Gimignano, beautiful city not far from Florence and Siena.
The simplicity of the preparation makes this course suitable for everyone, young and old. We propose a pasta cooking class lasting a total of about 4 hours, where we learn how to prepare an excellent dough that can be useful for many types of pasta.
In our pasta cooking class experience, we will focus on the long pasta such as fettuccine, tagliatelle, tagliolini, pappardelle, spaghetti etc. etc. .. and on the stuffed pasta such as ravioli, tortellini, triangoli, mezzelune, fagottini and so on and so forth.
Even if handmade pasta or ravioli mixed with just a splash of Tuscan olive oil and some cheese are delicious in their simplicity, we will also cook excellent sauces to go with them. (The preparation of the type of sauces will depend strictly on the season in which the course takes place).
In the end we will relax with a nice glass of wine and a good plate of freshly made pasta, surrounded by a view which will make our hearts melt and enhance our palates ….
DURATA: about 4 hours
PARTECIPANTS: maximum 12 people (for more people, the course can be held in another structure)
Please note: in each course we also prepare a desert and a bruschetta as an appetizer
