Che cosa aspettarsi
Such a lovely evening…!!! Cooking was always a chore for me but this evening lit fantastic insight and new perspective towards cooking as a whole. Silvana was so lovely and I definitely want to come back again and learn new recipes!
Where do I start! The evening was incredible from start to finish. It was a very humble setting; Gathered round her dining table we spent the evening laughing and making some fantastic food. I didn’t expect to have laughed so much at a cooking class, she sets everybody at ease and creates such a lovely atmosphere.
Silvana’s passion for pasta shone through at every opportunity, we learnt so much; how to work your dough, picking the right shape for your dish, seasoning, cooking, what to look for in supermarket pasta and more. It really extended beyond just a class in every sense. We even learnt some Italian too 🤌🤌
We had such a wonderful afternoon with Silvana. She explained all about the history of pasta making and what to look for when buying pasta in the supermarkets. The pasta making itself was so much fun, and the end result was delicious. Silvana was so welcoming and friendly and created such a warm environment. Thank you so much for a lovely experience - can't wait to try making pasta from scratch myself!
This was an incredible experience .
Silvana was so knowledgeable and made us feel at home. we left with a lot of tips that we still use a year on
