The making class will be held by a Grandmother with a deep culinary experience: here in Puglia, our grandmothers were from an early age an essential help and contributed to take on household chores.
Thanks to their years of practice, our grandmothers are a true and irreplaceable culinary heritage, custodians of culinary secrets that will be happily shared with you.

Right after the making class you will cook the fresh pasta you made with your own hands. Set the table, boil water…all this waiting is worthwhile: a delicious steaming dish of pasta will be served to you.
Our Nonna will be happy to share with you one of the traditional Apulian recipes made by local peasants for their Sunday lunch, when all the family gathered around the table: succulent handmade orecchiette with fresh tomato sauce and beef braciole.

At the end of the class you will have the skills to make pasta for yourself at home!

Hi Marco, this was a great experience. As a tip for future – maybe you can think of adding to this class a sauce-making part. Maybe less pasta variety but then combined with the sauce preparation (maybe with semi-prepared ingredients that it does not cost a lot of time), so that the guests can have the full process.

Thank you once again, this is a good memory from our Puglia time 🙂
