Learn about all the secrets of preparing pasta dough from scratch, using just flour and eggs, just like Romagna women do.
With skill, patience and a magic touch the “azdora” will teach you the secrets of making and rolling out pasta. Just like magic, tagliatelle, strozzapreti and piadine will appear!
You will be provided with a pasta wood board, a rolling pin and fresh ingredients, so you can try out the recipes, which Nonna will show you! You will prepare pasta and relating sauces including the delicious ragu – Bolognese sauce!
