We’ll have a welcome drink on arrival, then we’ll put on our aprons, roll up our sleeves and get straight into the pasta- making. While the pasta rests, I’ll show you how to make a homemade ricotta type cheese for the ravioli filling. Afterwards, we’ll move on to the pesto, walnut and mushroom sauces, these are the sauces for the 3 Ligurian speciality dishes. -“ Mandilli di Sea” ( “ Silk Handkerchiefs”) -Lasagna type pasta with Pesto sauce. - “Pansotti alla Salsa di Noci “ - Ravioli with ricotta and spinach in a walnut sauce. -“ Taglierini ai Funghi” - Fine- cut tagliatelle in a tomato and wild mushroom sauce. The next next stage involves the “tirare la sfoglia” - (the rolling out of the pasta), the cutting, the filling and the shaping. You’ll learn 5 or 6 different pasta shapes. After we’ve prepared our trays of freshly made pasta, we’ll cook and eat the pasta dishes with a glass of wine around the the table and then to finish off, there’ll be a surprise sweet and a traditional italian moka coffee.
I was born in Liguria, Italy, but brought up in England in a family of Italian restauranteurs and caterers. This background nurtured my passion for cooking and at the age of 13, I was a regional winner and finalist of “The Young Cook of the Year Competition” held at the Savoy Hotel, London, where I served up “Pasta alla Salsa di Noci” ( Pasta in a Walnut sauce). My pasta-making experience grew over the years as I was involved in the start-up of “Pasta Italiana”, my parents’ home-run pasta- making business, (lasting for 20 years), where I learnt to make fresh pasta and sauces based on traditional recipes handed-down from my grandmother who lived in Liguria. Now I live in Como, run and teach my own English courses and I am an Airbnb Superhost and I would love to share my pasta-making passion with anyone who adores pasta like me.
