Designed for enthusiastic vegan home cooks, this masterclass will teach you how to master the basics of "pasta bianca" (egg-free pasta), where only flour and water is used, in the authentic Italian tradition. Included in this class is a bespoke pasta making kit, which includes all the necessary equipment required for you to create handmade pasta at home.
Although the rising popularity of vegan dishes may appear to be a modern phenomenon, vegan pasta has actually existed in Italy for centuries. Our head sfogline will teach you how to make trofie, a short, twisted pasta from Liguria in the north of Italy. It is believed the name trofie derives from the Ligurian word strufuggia, meaning “to rub.” This name can be attributed to the process of rubbing the dough against a wooden board to create the distinctive twirls of this shape. Commonly served with the Ligurian classic, pesto alla genovese, Roberta will show you how to create this traditional pairing using only the finest plant-based ingredients.
