Pasta making is a hands-on experience that requires knowledge and skill. Whether you're new to pasta or a seasoned pro, our classes will share the best pasta-making techniques, recipes, and tips to help you master this delicate culinary craft. Our classes offer a truly authentic experience, led by our head chef, who hails from Florence, Tuscany, and speaks fluent English.
Our expert chefs recommend using a specific type of flour for each kind of pasta to ensure the perfect texture and flavor. And depending if the recipe requires eggs, we carefully select our eggs based on their size and freshness to enhance the richness of our pasta.
Here, you'll learn how to create the perfect pasta with or without eggs and make your favorite pasta shapes while creating the best fillings and sauces that complement your made-from-scratch pasta. At the end of the class, you can enjoy your pasta creation alongside a glass of perfectly paired Italian wine.
