What We Will Do

1

Within this experience, we want to take you through a journey 'in time'. This is not a simple pasta making class. We are going to make the traditional pasta of Teramo called ‘Pasta alla Chitarra’ from scratch. Very few people still make it following the tradition with an old wooden tool, called ‘chitarra’. Nowadays, restaurants and housewives prepare this pasta with the pasta machine, but you will experience with your senses that it’s a totally different story: making it completely by hand! Your life will change, when you will learn why it is important to make it by hand, and how to prepare it at your home.

*Please take into consideration: My Grandma is 85 years old, so it can happen, that she might not feel good sometimes. She also takes care of our Nonno (Grandpa). In this case, she will still come to supervise and tell me to add more salt for example, but I will take over her class.
