I’ve never made pasta. Partly because I’m one of the messiest cooks you’ll ever meet. Me + the classic volcano of flour with the egg in the middle dough making? It would just end poorly. And probably with at least one cat coated in flour.
Oh and see the bottle in the back of the picture? Totally had drinks while we cooked. Best sort of cooking.
See how this class involves dinner and alcohol? My husband did well.
Our instructor Jeff showed a few sauces, and then cooked up some pasta
Fresh pasta cooks absurdly fast. Like, we’re talking 30 seconds. Jeff called it “Italian top ramen” because it’s so crazy fast to cook.
Best part? The cooked noodles were all Jeff’s. Ours came home with us. We have an awesome stash of homemade pasta in our house right now.
Now I just need a pasta machine so that I can do this all the time. And an apron to make the husband wear at home.
You ever taken a cooking class?
