Hand Made Pasta

Sfoglina Simonetta

PROFESSIONAL
COURSES

My professional courses are aimed at schools, institutes, culinary universities that want to expand their educational offer and give their students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of one of the most requested sectors by Italian as well as foreign restaurants.

My courses are mainly hands-on and last between 3-5 days. The programmes are developed together with teachers, depending on different levels and needs.

The aim is to teach the correct manual skills, knowledge of the various pasta shapes, sauce combinations but also stimulate students’ creativity.

CONTESTS

Rolling-out dough contests are always successful formats to be organized as annual events or at fairs, festivals and exhibitions, under the aegis of local authorities, associations or in collaboration with companies.

Contests are open to anyone and, with the help of a jury, the largest and most regular (obviously round) sheet of egg pasta wins.

There is only one winner, but all contestants are protagonists, since they testify to the importance of passing on the tradition of the art of hand making fresh pasta, an undisputed excellence of Italian cuisine.

AMATEUR
PASTA CLASSES

Hands-on pasta making classes:
Anyone can learn the art of hand making fresh pasta, thanks to the special method I teach in my classes.

Each class lasts 3 hours. At the end of the class, you will be able to take home your freshly handmade pasta and you will be given the lesson notes.

You don’t need to have your own boards and rolling pins and no special cookery skill or knowledge is required.

My amateur pasta making classes can be held anywhere, as long as there are tables we can use (e.g. restaurants, halls, etc.). I offer a wide range of courses, but if you have special needs, feel free to let me know.

TEAM BUILDING,
TEAM COOKING

More and more companies are interested in pasta classes as team building experiences to create team spirit, synergy and fun opportunities, often on occasion of meetings and conferences.

The outcome is always successful, because the winning formula of pasta classes is that they help you discover your manual skills, they are fun and there is always something useful to learn.

STAFF
TRAINING

If you are a restaurant willing to offer your customers an excellence of Italian cuisine and, at the same time, give your staff an incredible and stimulating opportunity for growth, then I will be more than pleased to help.

Quality, quantity and working method are the key points of my training programme.

At the end of the course you will be given notes describing the process of making pasta step by step and giving all the necessary instructions (thickness of the dough, length of the pasta sheet, quantity of filling), to make sure the method is maintained, even when some members of the staff are not available.
