Event Overview

Pasta... with so many shapes, styles and flavors to choose from, it's easy to make pasta at home and without a machine. If you're tired of paying more than you should for specialty pasta or thought pasta making is hard, think again!

This class is geared to those who enjoy pasta, but would like to learn hands on how they are made and prepared without a machine. From this class, you’ll have a better understanding of how to make pasta at home using everyday ingredients and tools, and enjoying them with a feast of accompaniments. We will cover the common equipment used, the technique of making homemade pasta dough in various shapes as well as troubleshooting and ways to rectify dough that isn't coming out right.

    Joelen is absolutely adorable! I will definitely be taking more classes with her! The class was very informative and what I loved most is that it is definitely possibly to make good, handmade pasta without a machine. I actually own a pasta making machine and have a lot more trouble than you would imagine trying to run it! The location was a little hard to find, but the facility was really nice and the group size was perfect! We learned three different pasta styles and were then encouraged to be creative and try out more. There were sauces prepared, ready to dress our dishes and Joelen even had extra food to make sure we were all well fed! Needless to say, I had trouble walking home with all that food in my belly! And there were still leftovers to take home! I would highly recommend this class, for the extreme novice and the experienced cook.
