If pasta were a person, I'm pretty sure we'd be married. There's just something so inviting, comforting and honestly, transcendent about fresh pasta. Nothing in the world comes close, really...
So IMAGINE... it's Sunday morning, 9am and you've just wiped the eye boogers from your eye balls and Pasta Sensei Evan Funke of the soon to open Felix in Venice, is standing there, in your kitchen with his rifle (!!!) case full of pasta tools ready to give you a hands-on pasta tutorial. Holy smokes!!!
Oliver the Apron Pig was pretty much circling the kitchen in hopes of any scraps of any kind. #justpigthings #happytogetinontheaction
Semolina dreams, you guys. The end result was a bowl full of fresh Strascinati cacio e pepe but getting there, we know is half the fun. Evan, with our Apron Lady Ellen Bennett and Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, under his wing made dough from scratch and rolled out some intricate lorighittas, orecchiette, gnocchetti and maccheroni di busa. Try saying that 3 times fast!!!
Pasta making, as you can tell, can be very serious business!
Thanks, Chef! Can't wait to do this again! And you can bet your rolling pins we'll be down to see you at Felix ASAP!
