Make Pasta from Scratch with an Italian Tour Director

1.5 hours
Group size
Up to 15 people

Learn how to make homemade pasta with an Italian Tour Director.

You know the long-ribbon shaped pasta that you love to order at your favorite Italian restaurant? While it goes by fettucine in Southern Italy and tagliatelle in Northern Italy, everyone agrees on one thing: it’s delicious. This tasty type of pasta is surprisingly simple to make at home and Emilio, an Italian with a love of all things food, wine, and culture will show you how. Your pasta-making lesson will start with an introduction to the ingredients you’ll use—only seven, if you don’t count salt and pepper! From his home kitchen, Emilio will walk you through the right way to make your dough and how to cut it into strips that are the perfect size for this type of pasta. Sharing stories while he shows you the best way to make an easy tomato sauce, he'll turn you into a pasta-making pro before you know it.

I really enjoyed the online pasta making class. Our instructor was entertaining and a good teacher- though cooking classes over the internet aren't the easiest. We enjoyed both the process and the final result!
