Learn how to make pasta without rolling pin or machine, just with your hands! You will first make various types of pasta from different regions in Italy, including Spighette, Foglie d'Ulivo, Orecchiette, Busiate, Paguri, and Rosas's invention "Raspberries." 

Then we'll enjoy our fresh handmade pasta with a red pesto as we sit down together in the open lounge by the pool under the stars. We will talk about the different textures, sauces, traditions of those pasta cuts, and wines. Sourdough for "scarpetta" will be provided :).

Chef Rosa has been making homemade pasta since the age of four. Standing on a chair, she shared the pasta board with her grandmother Nonna Giuseppa and her nanny Nunzia. They had different styles. Nonna's pasta was rough, chewy, and uneven looking. Nunzia's pasta was thin like paper, perfectly cut, and smooth. Chef Rosa compares pasta to a signature: we all have our own personalized style. She will share hands-on tips and pinch of love!
