Up early on a Saturday morning and of to City Lit where I was booked on a course entitled “Perfect pasta:making your own fresh pasta”. I’ve always wanted to know how to do this and for the sake of an early start here was my opportunity. I didn’t think it was too complicated but it just always sounded a bit scary.
The class was quite small and everything we needed was ready and waiting – bowls, ingredients, utensils and yes, pasta machines!!
The pace of the class was brisk but well structured; a mix of watch a demonstration then do it for yourself – with the right amount of help when you needed it. Working in pairs we managed to produce some pretty decent pasta I think.
I’ve now bought a pasta machine of my own and although I haven’t had time to lay all my bowls, ingredients, utensils and machine out yet I shall be very soon!
