In this Virtual class, you'll learn all the steps to make traditional pasta from the south of Italy without the use of ANY tools except for your own bare hands!
Making the pasta only takes 30 minutes, and you'll be amazed by how much pasta you can make by the end! This class focuses on making traditional shapes such as Cavatelli and Orecchiette, then how to cook them to perfection, aka "al dente", and how to make a quick, versatile, authentic tomato sauce. And at the end, mangiamo! We eat!Detailed description:
Even if you've made pasta before, I will share the history of this type of pasta so that you can imagine yourself in Italy! I'll also give you tips on how to make your cooking techniques more efficient (your time is important, after all!), and above all, I want to make the experience fun for you!
Cooking is a sensual experience and can be relaxing, especially as you gain confidence. I won't leave anyone behind, we are cooking together, and this class is suited to all levels of cooking experience, even complete beginners!
Having studied Engineering, I'm a self-professed geek when it comes to optimising cooking techniques and WILL share my tips with you about how to make amazing tasting food with minimal effort & time!
I'm passionate about food, like you! I love to share the cultural origins and nutritional benefits behind what I cook and relish the nostalgic sensations a dish inspires as it brings back memories of travels or past experiences!
I trained professionally as a chef at the Savoy Hotel in London, gaining Michelin-level cooking expertise under Marcus Wareing's (Master Chef Judge) tutelage.
In 2005, I was chosen to join Gordon Ramsay in the first season of the F Word (don't worry, I won't shout at you, I'll only shout for you!)
Having lived in South, Central & North America, and Europe and travelled to over 40 countries to collect recipes and discover new cuisines, I'm multi-culturally diverse and can teach your class in French, German, English & Spanish.
I have hosted over 200 group cooking classes, and as a former TV Chef presenter on the Swiss Tv Show Al Dente, I LOVE to entertain and make sure everyone has fun!
