workshop and supper club with Nicole Di Nardo
Join Nicole Di Nardo for a fun, hands-on stuffed pasta making class; followed by a supper club! You will start by learning how to make a simple and versatile pasta dough sheets from scratch. Then, working the dough into the classic tortellini shape you’ll stuff the pasta with — pork, chicken and ricotta — learning a variety of techniques for making beautiful stuffed pasta.
Next, going back to Nicole’s Sicilian roots you’ll learn how to make busiate pasta. This type of pasta is originally from the Trapani province. They take their name from busa, the Sicilian word for "stem of ampelodemos", a local grass, which is used in preparing them and giving them their helical shape.
After you’ve honed your new skills, we’ll take a break. Nicole will prepare a delicious dinner featuring the hand-crafted pasta. It will be cooked and served in selected sauces for you to enjoy in a dinner featuring the pasta that you’ve learned to make that day!
