WEEK #1 PASTA 101
Saturday 3 March 2021, 3.00 pm
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, I will show you how to cook a simple, tasty Sausage and Pea Ragu – and we will have lunch together, virtually.
Equipment: Pasta Machine, Wooden board, garganelli board and pasta wheel cutter - both included in the Emilia Romagna supply box, available to purchase here: https://www.pastajourney.com.au/shop - or easily found online in Australia.
Class time: 120 minutes
WEEK #2 TORTELLINI IN BROTH OR PARMIGIANO CREAM
Sunday 11 April 2021, 11.00 am
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 a Parmigiano cream.
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.
Equipment: Food Processor, pasta machine, wooden board, Pasta wheel cutter included in the Emilia Romagna supply box, available to purchase here or easily found online in Australia.
Class time:120 minutes
WEEK #3 SPINACH & RICOTTA TORTELLONI WITH THE PERFECT BROWN BUTTER SAUCE
Sunday 18 April 2021, 3 pm
You will learn how to make tortelloni with one of the most decadent fillings in week three: 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.
Equipment: Pasta Machine, wooden board, a tray and a sharp knife.
Class time: 120 minutes
WEEK #4 LASAGNA
Saturday 24 April, 3.00 pm
Pasta Granny, Franca lives in the hills, south of Bologna. Today for our last cooking class, you will make Franca's Traditional Lasagna Bolognese.
Franca's extraordinary recipe combines diced pancetta, ground beef and pork, white wine, and passata to become a rich, balanced pasta sauce – good enough to impress anybody's nanna.
You will learn how to make silky smooth lasagna pasta from scratch, as well as the creamy bechamel sauce. Your family and friends will thank you for years to come, now you have mastered the perfect lasagna.
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!
This course is designed with convenience and connection in mind. I conduct my pasta-making classes online so you can participate and cook along with me, avoiding the demonstration model that some in-person cooking classes provide.
Pasta Journey courses ensure you obtain the skills required to make incredible, traditional, handmade pasta from the comfort of your kitchen. You will always make enough to provide a nourishing and tasty Sunday lunch that you can share with family and friends. By doing this course, you are creating new traditions and sharing food from the heart.
