About the Event
Join Marina for the Pasta Journey signature three week course: A Pasta Journey Through Emilia-Romagna.
WEEK #1 PASTA 101
The Italian way to make fresh pasta!
In this step-by-step class, you will learn to make two kinds of egg pasta typical to the Emilia-Romagna region, tagliatelle, and garganelli.
To accompany your pasta, we will cook a simple, tasty Sausage and Pea Ragu – and we will have lunch together.
Class time: 180 minutes
WEEK #2 TORTELLINI IN BROTH OR FRIED
In week two, you will learn how to make the traditional pasta of Emilia-Romagna, tortellini.
Following famous chef Massimo Bottura's recipe, we will prepare tortellini and cook them two ways: in brodo (broth) and fried.
The filling of the tortellini is as important as the pasta. For this recipe, we stick to using ingredients from the Emilia-Romagna region, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, and fresh pork. When you combine these flavours with those in the broth, a moreish savory taste known as umami occurs.
Class time:180 minutes
WEEK #3 SPINACH & RICOTTA TORTELLONI WITH THE PERFECT BROWN BUTTER SAUCE
You will learn how to make tortelloni with one of the most decadent fillings in week four: the simple and delicious combination of slowly roasted spinach and ricotta. Also, we will make the delicate EGG YOLK ravioli using the same filling. We will serve both with a brown butter and sage sauce, which we will learn how to make together.
Class time: 180 minutes
So, what do you think? Are you ready to pack your appetite and join me for this luxury journey through Emilia-Romagna?
The Italian region of Emilia-Romagna is the ultimate foodie destination, famous for ragu, parmesan cheese, prosciutto di Parma, balsamic vinegar, AND handmade pasta!
In Emilia-Romagna's capital city of Bologna, I honed my pasta making skills; learning to master different flours and how to blend them properly to create silky smooth pasta, every time.
Emilia-Romagna is where I keep my heart, and now, I want to take you there too.
So, pack your appetite and come with me as we journey to the depths of Italian soul food!
