PASTA MAKING | Homemade Pasta Cooking Class
SPECIAL PASTA CLASS: CORZETTI & MORE | Handmade Artisanal Pasta Cooking Class
ALL ABOUT CORZETTI CUTTERS
While everyone is already familiar with classic pasta shapes like farfalle, maccheroni, and rigatoni, a whole new world of amazing personalized pasta awaits you during your Corzetti Pasta-making class. Corzetti pasta cutters are part of an ancient Ligurian tradition used to create beautiful customized designs directly onto handmade pasta dough. Used traditionally by noble families to display their family shields and symbols, artisanal woodworkers in both the Ligurian and Tuscan regions are bringing back this tradition with their lovingly hand-carved pasta cutters made from treasured local woods like olive, maple and beechwood (all stable woods free from resins and tannins whose flavor might corrupt the fresh pasta doughs).
Your class will provide the perfect opportunity to learn how to create a variety of different doughs that provide the perfect density and consistency to hold their shapes once pressed by the Corzetti cutters. Your teacher will also show you why the Corzetti pasta disks are so effective at holding their sauce as compared to other traditional Pasta shapes covered during your course.
You’ll have the chance at the end of your course to purchase your own Corzetti cutter to bring home with you so you can recreate this unique dish for your friends and loved ones! We're delighted to set up this unique culinary experience for you!
