When quizzed by a Telegraph journalist about what fresh pasta meant to her, our sfoglina (pasta chef) Livia paused for a moment, before answering, with a smile: ''very long time to make, very little time to eat."
Of course, it's unsurprising the pastas prepared by Livia took some time to prepare: whilst some shapes can take mere moments to prepare, others can demand a little more concentration and expertise.
In this limited edition, intermediate masterclass learn how to make some of Italy's more advanced pasta shapes - mainly by hand alone - from strozzpreti (''priest stranglers'' in Italian) to the beautiful strascinati of Puglia and Basilicata. Although we'll be making more challenging shapes, this class is open to all, from absolute beginners to pasta experts. Our head pastaia (pasta chef) Roberta d'Elia will be on hand to guide you through the process, and you'll leave the class with the confidence to prepare up to three new types of pasta by hand.
Upon arrival, you'll enjoy a glass of complimentary prosecco superiore, as well as an introduction to pasta-making from Roberta. We'd love to welcome you then...
