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.
