Pasta Lovers Cooking Class

The first pieces of evidence of the pasta date back to the IV century b.C. . Aristophanes, who was an ancient Greek playwright, in his operas spoke about the “ Legano “, which was a dough based on water and flour, that was rolled out and then cut in stripes ( kind of ancient tagliatelle ). The same recipes conquered also the Roman Empire. Is for all these reasons that we decided to celebrate this important and traditional Italian product, making a special Pasta experience where you will learn how to make three different kinds of it.

From: 115,00 EUR
