COOK CLUB – PASTA
This lesson launches our Cook Club series with a fun, intensive lesson on Pasta! We’ll begin with a discussion on Pasta making, the machines and tools to make it; the science which includes understanding Flours, Gluten development; how it’s created, cut, dried then cooked. Next a demonstration using a Pasta machine, hand rolling and shaping it, and discussion on how Egg and Water Pasta are made correctly. Then we cook! The amazing recipes include the perfect Sauce for each Pasta. They are Spaghetti with Bolognese Sauce; Cavatelli Alfredo; Spaetzle with Gruyere Sauce; Gnocchi Verde with Parmesan and Butter; Ravioli with Vodka Sauce; Greek Manestra (Orzo), and Crepes. We’ll sit down to a meal of our creations and discussion with the group of what we learned and experienced.
