Commonly known as La Dotta, La Grassa, La Rossa (The Learned, The Fat, The Red), the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region has a lot to offer. Apart from hosting one of the world’s oldest universities, Bologna is awash with time-honoured culinary traditions. Nestled among the famous red-hued buildings and renaissance-era towers, you’ll find many eateries serving up authentic bolognese cuisine.
Often on the menu, are the alluring bright green Balazoni. In this exclusive Masterclass live from an Italian kitchen, our pasta artisan Livia will teach you all the skills needed to master this irresistible pasta. The enticing colour of balanzoni comes from spinach, which is added to a dough of super-refined “00 flour and eggs. The fillings, like the shape, are similar to those of tortelloni—typically ricotta and Parmigiano, ground salumi such as mortadella, and beaten egg.
- A very special one-hour regional masterclass, live from Rome where you will learn to make the traditional dish Balanzoni - Green Tortelloni filled with Ricotta, Spinach and Mortadella with Sage Butter Sauce.
- Learn the techniques for making fresh pasta at home by hand, with only household items
- Enjoy a virtual supper club with your new friends at the end of the class (optional!)
