With this experience I want to take you through a journey in time. This is not a simple pasta making class. We are going to make from scratch, the traditional pasta from Teramo, called ‘pasta alla chitarra’. Very few people still make it following the tradition, with this old wooden tool called ‘chitarra’. Restaurants and housewives nowadays make it 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 is important to make it by hand, and how to make it home under 20m time.
During the experience I and Nonna we will show you and keep alive this 400y old pasta making tradition, for then savouring our delicious results together in our family.
After collecting the eggs & tomatoes from our little farm, Nonna Amina will share with you all the secrets for making the best tomatoes sauce on earth, so that once back home you can take with you a piece of Abruzzo and impress your friends and loved ones.

My Grandma is 83y old, so it can happen that sometimes she might not feel good, she also has our Nonno(grandpa) to take care of, in that case, she will still come to supervise and tell me to add more salt, but I will be taking her class.
