Fresh Pasta & Ricotta
UKSF's pasta guru, John Tormey, returns for this pasta and ricotta workshop. Participants will learn to make two types of pasta: fettuccine and gnudi. The first type of pasta will be demo'd using a pasta rolling machine, while the second type, gnudi, will be hands-on. Gnudi is a type of gnocchi made from ricotta cheese and a little bit of flour... it's a pasta something everyone can make, no equipment necessary. The class will also learn how to make ricotta from scratch, making this pasta truly homemade, start to finish. Participants will go home with a starter kit including recipes, samples of their creations, and dough to freeze for future gnocchi-making.
Date & Time: Thursday, March 3, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: CUESA Dacor Teaching Kitchen at the Ferry Building
