Authentic Italian Pasta virtualdemo
Want to learn how to make the perfect handmade pasta? I will teach you in a simple hour long demo. After the demo I will also send over written instructions. This is 1 on 1, so you can feel free to stop me, ask questions anytime. I'll let you in on all the secrets that makes Italian cooking so much different, and so much more flavorful. Bring your friends, make it a cooking party!
I will send over the ingredients you need beforehand, so that way we can work together and I can check your progress as we go along.
In the demo I will teach you how to make the dough, how to prepare the water (yes this is important), how to properly pronounce the names of the pasta, and how to make a simple sauce. If you would like a more complicated sauce like a Bolognese or a ragu, let me know and I can do this at an additional cost/exchange.
-Tagliatelli with a simple tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce (easy peasy). This is probably the most basic and the most important one to learn, as it will give you the foundation for the rest.
-Gnocchi with butter + sage. Please add 15 simbi, as it takes longer and requires more prep for me, (medium)
-Tortelloni filled with ricotta - sauce of butter and sage (difficult)
Note: On request, I can teach you how to make pizza, how to prepare dried pasta, Italian deserts etc.
