Ah, Toscana… home to the Renaissance, to the immeasurable beauty of Florence and Siena, to the rugged Appenine Mountains, beaches on the Tyrrhenian, miles of olive groves and vineyards. But, most importantly – at least to us – Tuscany means food. Good food. And a lot of it!
We'd like to invite you to a enjoy a virtual Taste of Tuscany, a digital pasta masterclass intimately hosted by Roberta from her own kitchen in Berkshire. You’ll start by discovering more about Tuscany and its regional traditions from Roberta – who is Italian – and what it means to her. You'll learn how to make the classic pasta of the region: pappardelle, a long, flat and thick pasta that i toscani love to eat with wild boar ragu, another speciality of the region. You will then learn how to make a classic Italian ragu.
A couple of days before the class, you'll receive an email letting you know what you need for the event. The only key items for pasta making are flour (ideally 00, but plain white flour is totally fine too) and eggs. If you follow a plant-based diet, you can use semolina and water. If you cannot get the ingredients to make the sauce, just let Roberta know what you have sitting in your fridge/pantry and she will guide you through an alternative Italian sauce using what you have available.
You will also require access to Zoom video calling and a webcam. More information will be included by email.
Please note that, in order to preserve the intimacy of the event, we can welcome 1 person per ticket purchased to the digital event. We will have a maximum of 10 guests per digital event.
We highly recommend booking your tickets in advance. For any other questions regarding the event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
