Pasta Primer

$105.00

A 4-hour, hands-on introductory course to homemade pasta, culminating in a dinner served with wine.

Making pasta from scratch is fun. And it is easier than you may think.
 
During this 4-hour pasta primer, Viola will focus on cut pasta: spaghetti, orecchiette, fettucini, and farfalle. She will demonstrate two ways to make fresh pasta: by machine and by hand. The first is faster, but it requires special equipment; the second is a labor of love, ideal for a leisurely weekend or group activity.
