Happy Baking from Le Dolci!
Le Dolci had the pleasure of teaching two fine men the art of making fresh homemade pasta in the studio this past November. It might be safe to say that most of us who want to learn the art of pasta making, think it may be too hard! In truth, pasta making is actually one of the least complicated food items you could make; unlike baking which requires an almost scientific approach to the recipe at hand.
The cooking club was broken down into a two hour session and our amateur pasta makers were given instructions on how to create stuffed ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese as well as classic linguine. Using our simple recipe, they were taught how to properly create the perfect pasta dough then use a pasta machine to pull out the stringy linguine and fill and form delicate ravioli pillows.
After a fun class full of laughs, we sat down to sample the pasta creations – it turns out our two chefs in training are actually pretty good pasta makers! The chefs in training left with some pasta making tips and a package of fresh hand-made pasta to bring home to the family. Don’s wife even commented, ‘Well this isn’t that bad!’ Result!
Check out all the pasta making fun on our facebook page and join us on our next pasta making class at the end of February; it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends, family or even that special date.
