Grandmother Workshop: Making Fresh Pasta
Haven't we all wished for an Italian grandmother in our kitchen, complete with a pot of sauce bubbling on the stove and a bowl of fresh pasta made just for you?
There is no need to merely dream. Making homemade pasta is wonderfully easy. And once you have the basics down, you can begin to experiment, making your own ravioli or tortellini with puttanesca or Bolognese sauce.
For our first Grandmother Workshop, Vera Ciammetti will be teaching us the fundamentals of making fresh pasta from scratch. We'll all get our hands dirty as we mix, knead, roll, and cut tagliatelle (egg fettuccine) together. Rudy Duran, our Grandfather for the day, will fill the space with the aromas of his amazing sauce and give us lots of ideas for making our own at home.
Vera is the daughter of Italian immigrants, and spent a lifetime in the kitchen with her sisters, mother, and grandmother making homemade "everything." Vera is an enthusiastic chef, the founder of Slow Food Alameda, and one of the organizers of last year's Slow Food Nation.
Rudy was born and raised in Livorno, Italy, and is the chef/owner of C'Era Una Volta restaurant in Alameda. Rudy is proud to serve up mouthwatering Italian food using only the best local ingredients.
Once the hands-on portion wraps up, youll not only enjoy a bowl of freshly cooked pasta, but also go home with some pasta to cook up later.
Please bring a pasta maker (if you have one), a container for carrying pasta home, and an apron.
