Whether you’re a novice in the kitchen or a seasoned home cook, our pasta-making class promises an engaging and educational experience. Roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with every step, from mixing the dough to crafting your pasta shapes. You’ll delve into the heart of pasta creation, understanding the alchemy of ingredients and the finesse of techniques.
We’ll first explore the role of each ingredient, from the protein-rich flour to the luscious eggs, and understand how they harmonize to create the perfect pasta dough. Then, dive into the mixing process, discovering the science behind making the initial dough and kneading – a crucial step in developing gluten for that desirable pasta texture. While the dough rests, we’ll switch gears and Nicole will demo how to make a delectable Bolognese sauce, learning to balance flavors to achieve that rich, savory profile.
As the Bolognese flavors meld, we’ll jump back to rolling, shaping, and cooking the pasta. Finally, we’ll enjoy a meal around The Book Kitchen’s dining table. Plan on taking fresh pasta home to share with family and friends.
