Look Ma! No Machine: Hand-formed Pasta Class & Dinner

June 4, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Making rustic pasta
With nothing more than flour, water and your hands, you can make one of the most gratifying of meals: a bowl of steaming pasta. Not since mud pies and PlayDoh has cooking been so much fun. The only thing more enjoyable is the conviviality of making pasta with others. There are several hundred different pasta shapes but perhaps you’ll invent your own!

In honor of this Terra Madre year, we bring you a pasta-making class and dinner where you’ll make 3 to 4 rustic shapes that match a variety of sauces to carry you through the seasons. These no-egg pastas don’t require a machine, so they’re easy to reproduce at home with few-to-no tools in no more time than it takes to cook a typical meal. The shapes we’ll be making hail from the little-explored culinary wonder of the Italian region of Puglia, recently featured in the New York Times, and where the instructor spent time cooking.

The class takes place at the charming Din Din Supper Club (info below) and is not to be missed. Grab an apron and roll up your sleeves. You’re in for a treat.
