What you'll do
Let's make fresh pasta! But first, wine. Always wine. We'll start by sampling a Northern Italian varietal that will be paired with a soft cheese. We'll then get our aprons on and start mixing the dough by hand using the best local eggs and Italian flour. You will learn about kneading and dusting techniques. Next, with my instruction, you will learn to cut the pasta through a pasta machine and create pasta nests. At this point we will enter southern Italy and sample a red wine with hard cheese and the best sourdough bread. Then, while the water is boiling, we will learn how to make a quick tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes, basil and local garlic from my family farm. The lightness of the sauce allows the fresh pasta flavour to come through. Together we will make a salad of local micro-greens and a simple vinaigrette. As you take your seat at the table, I will serve you the pasta you created with your own hands. The evening will be capped with espresso and cannoli (Sicilian cream filled pastry).
As a holistic nutritionist and chef at Shi Wellness Retreats I believe in the transformational power of food. Growing up in a loud Italian household with an open-door policy, I quickly learned that sharing good food and drink is at the heart of family. After having lived in Florence to study art, a love for food was born. I later went on to explore my Sicilian roots by founding a catering company 'La Rivolta' and uncovering traditional dishes full of flavour and rich in history. My aim is to empower everyone to reconnect with food through a healthy diet, rich in flavour.
