Location: Zoom Video
Ah, Liguria… home to the Italian Riviera, beautiful fishing villages, stylish Portofino and the port city of Genova (once a Republic and maritime power in its own right). Liguria also happens to be the home of our founder, Alessandro, who, although now living in London, links his idea for Pasta Evangelists with wonderful memories of eating his nonna’s fresh pasta as a child.
We'd like to invite you to enjoy a virtual Taste of Liguria, a digital pasta masterclass intimately hosted by Roberta from her own kitchen in Berkshire. You’ll start by discovering more about Liguria 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: trofie, an egg-free short pasta that is typically enjoyed with pesto alla Genovese, which is one of the most beautiful, yet bastardised, sauces of Italy, if not the world.
- 100g of semola
- 80ml of warm water
For the pesto sauce:
- A bunch of fresh basil
- Extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup pine nuts
- Parmigiano Reggiano or other hard cheese (optional)
- 1 clove garlic (optional)
- A rolling pin (if you don’t have one, a bottle of wine would make a very authentic substitute!)
- Knife & Fork
- Cling film
- Pestle & Mortar
If you cannot get the ingredients to make the pesto 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.
