Corzetti Pasta Cooking Class - Class description

What are Corzetti?

Corzetti are coin-shaped pasta from Liguria, Italy, stamped with intricate designs using wooden molds. Made from wheat flour and water are often served with Basil pesto, walnut sauce or Marjoram and pine nuts. Corzetti tools are hand-crafted wooden molds used to make Corzetti pasta. They have a historical connection between Florence and Liguria: Florentine Artisans meticulously carve intricate designs into these stamps, reflecting a rich tradition. The exchange between these regions dates back to the Renaissance, when artistry flourished. These tools not only shape the pasta but also add decorative patterns that enhance its visual appeal and help sauces cling to the pasta, symbolizing the blend of cultural influences.

What do you do in the Corzetti cooking class in Florence?

Explore the Ligurian Tradition of Corzetti Pasta

Immerse yourself in this beautiful Ligurian culinary tradition as you learn about and create historic Corzetti pasta and other fresh pasta dishes! Under the careful guidance of our English-speaking chef, you'll learn how to prepare fresh pasta dough using only the best local ingredients.

Discover the Ancient Art of Pasta Stamping

You'll be introduced to the ancient tradition once used by noble families to print their family shields and symbols onto their pasta. Artisan woodworkers in both Tuscany and Liguria still create the two-piece wooden Corzetti tool – the first part being a round cutter and the second being the engraved stamp that embosses the pasta with an intricate hand-carved symbol of choice. You'll get to try your hand at this special technique, producing some of the most beautiful and intricate pasta you have ever seen.

Create Other Fresh Pasta Shapes, Seasonal Appetizers and Sauces

In addition to making Corzetti pasta, you will create two other pasta shapes such as ravioli, tagliatelle, or gnocchi. Your chef will also guide you through the preparation of a seasonal appetizer and two scrumptious seasonal pasta sauces. You'll learn about the perfect way Corzetti pasta holds the sauce, enhancing its flavor. End your cooking experience by preparing a delicious dessert that perfectly complements your pasta meal.
