Back when the hubs and I started planning this adventure of a wedding in Italy, I had my heart set on doing something special with the girls the week leading up to the big day. I knew just what would excite a group of foodies and Registered Dietitians -an authentic Italian cooking lesson- so last week, Pierluigi, a local chef and restaurant owner, invited us into his kitchen to teach us a few things about pasta making.
Within two hours we turned 2 mounds of flour, 3 eggs, a few splashes of water, olive oil, a bunch of wild asparagus and a block of Parmesan cheese into a delicious pasta dish -which we of course devoured over a bottle of wine at lunchtime. The pasta recipe was so authentic it couldn’t be written on a recipe card and my spaghetti cutting knife skills need some serious work -but that’s what cookbooks and KitchenAid mixers are for. Our little Italian cooking lesson was once-in-a-lifetime experience we’ll certainly be reminiscing about for years to come.
Homemade pasta: too much trouble or worth the work?
I’m in love with your sweater! Where is it from?
What a wonderful idea, you girls looked like you had such a great time! I follow your and Anne’s blog and saw your beautiful wedding dress. I wore the exact same one for my wedding in Maui last Sept! How funny.
Hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon!
Actually have a pasta maker!!! It’s so worth the work!
Totally worth the work! It just tastes so much better! & Fresh!
What a wonderful idea – looks like so much fun with the girls! :)
I’ve never had homemade pasta but I would LOVE to try it!
Everything looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to catch up! I need details on how to find your top in these pictures – seriously so fun!
Totally worth it! We learned to make pasta in Italy too and came home and purchased a pasta maker. We have used it a couple times this year and it’s so fun and delicious! You look so happy:-)
The last and only time I e made pasta was in italy and its definitely worth the work. It’s a million times better than store bought in my opinion!! Just need to find the time to make some … Haha
What a fun thing to do with your girls before the big day! It looks like you ladies had a blast.
