Pasta and authentic antipasto are both comfort foods that many of us enjoy. However, what is presented to us on supermarket shelves and some high street establishments are versions which have an identity of their own, which of course has its place and the benefit of convenience.
Those who have been to Italy have no doubt experienced authentic pesto or mozzarella and the unique difference in flavours, textures in the other ingredients often combined with both these foods. The combination of essential techniques and fundamental ingredients is what makes the flavours stand out including the most simplistic component yet the one so often overlooked; water! Once you have mastered the structure of making the correct dough, it opens boundless options, possibilities and variations.
On this creative workshop, we also unfold antipasto from more remote places; lemon infused peppers, vegetables doused in Vermouth just to give you an appetiser.
We aim to push the boundaries further; we unveil creative yet authentic advanced concepts that will astound family and friends including an original and early method of pasta making using a chitarra; pasta guitar! The recipes and techniques can be applied and adapted to enjoy as part of a weekend gourmet experience or put together mid week when time is restricted.
A workshop well investing in if you are passionate about authentic pasta and its supporting components. Suitable for both vegetarian and vegan preferences.
