Pasta making in Covent Garden
Dec 10, 2019 at 19:00 — 21:30 (GMT)
This is a great experience for those who want to learn the art of making pasta. The classes are run by Vicky, an Italian cookery tutor who wants to spread the passion for good and healthy food in London. The classes are very popular events to socialise, have fun and learn how to make pasta. They are also perfect for kids.
In this beginners class you'll learn how to make different shapes of pasta from flour and eggs (water for vegans and egg-allergy). The class is also BYOB. No experience is required but enthusiastic people in learning something completely new are very welcome.
How is the class structured?
When you arrive, you will find the ingredients laid out for you ready to be used. The class will kick off with Vicky sharing some fun facts about the history of pasta and the ingredient's origins. Then, Vicky will explain you where ingredients come from, what ingredients are used, where to get the best ingredients and why to use those specific ingredients.
The workshop is entirely hands-on. After a demonstration of how to make the dough, you will make everything by yourself. Vicky will guide you through everything, including the mixing process and kneading, before working on making the shapes! You’ll get lots of tips and become more confident in your kitchen. You'll also feel the mindfulness effects of cooking - it is amazing!
After the all hard work, you can take home all the pasta you have created or we can eat it together.
