SNP live from Rome
Time & Location
About the Event
Take an (online) trip to Grano Farina Cooking School in the heart of Rome.
Join us on May 29th for a Saturday Night Pasta masterclass taught by my Italian pasta teacher. Grano & Farina is a small cooking school in Trastevere, run by a husband-and-wife team, chef Pino Ficara and sfoglina Julia Ficara. It was Julia that gave me the skills, knowledge and confidence to write #SNP. Julia is one of the best pasta teachers in the world, and since we can’t get to Rome, why not bring her into your kitchen?!
Together we have created an online pasta class, perfect to kick start your own Saturday Night Pasta. Focused on pastas from Central & Southern Italy as well as Sardegna, we will knead our dough together. Julia will then demonstrate pici (Tuscany), macceroni a descita, cavatelli (Puglia) & the most beautiful (and unusual) of them all, lorighittas (Sardegna). We will then form our pasta together, whilst Julia corrects and guides each one of us. It’s going to be a personal pasta class right there in your kitchen. Conversation and wine to flow throughout.
Ahead of the class, you’ll receive a selection of sauce recipes to choose from and prep, so at the end of the class when we sign off, all you’ll need to do is throw your freshly made pasta into a boiling pot of water and dinner will be served.
The class kicks off at 6pm AEST time and will finish at 7:30pm, timed for you to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour. No fancy equipment is needed. Class numbers are limited to ensure a personal experience. Ingredients, notes, step by step recipes and SNP playlist to all be provided well in advanced.
$60 per person, all of which will go to Grano & Farina who, thanks to COVID, haven’t been able to teach in person classes since February 2020, giving plenty of time for them to master the art of online classes.
