Pasta class with an Italian
ONLY FEW PASTA CLASSES AVAILABLE. “Life is a combination of magic and pasta” Federico Fellini Both the hosts are covid 19 vaccinated (booster included) I will sanitize the workspace and restroom space prior to the class, but keep in mind there is only one bathroom. Do you want to know how to cook a real fresh Italian pasta with all the tricks that made Italy the country of Pasta? I’m going to teach you all the knowledge that my family (especially my grandmother) passed down to me since I was very little. We are going to start off with touching and knowing the right ingredients (imported from Italy), and then get ready to get your hands really dirty! We are going to prepare two kinds of pasta: tortelli filled with fresh local ricotta and spinach, and tagliatelle. While mixing with your hands, we cheers with unlimited wine to good food and good company! While we are waiting for the pasta dough to rest we will enjoy a real Italian aperitivo with a charcuterie board. Salute! This experience can be vegetarian friendly. This class can’t be suitable for Gluten Free or Vegan. To finish off the evening we are going to dine with your just made fresh pasta. PS: since the wine is unlimited, it is our responsibility to make sure that everyone is safe. Therefore if we believe someone is too intoxicated, we will stop serving that individual.

Come with an open mind, comfortable shoes, empty stomach and we'll take care of the rest! This is our passion and we like our guests to feel like friends.

There is free internet and ticket offices where you can buy tickets for various shows and performances. Then, with a paper cup of coffee, you can take part in the mass traditional viewing of the popular TV program Good Morning America!, broadcast live every day on the huge screen of the ABC building.
