March 30th, 2:00-4:00pm
Dickinson College Farm
553 Park Dr., Boiling Springs, PA
This workshop is an overview on fresh pasta making. From different flours to different shapes, we will explore a wide range of possibilities and combinations easily doable at home. We will address ingredients and dough-kneading techniques. We will see the difference between tagliatelle, pappardelle, ravioli, tortelli, and many more. Don’t have a pasta attachment for your mixer? Grandma didn’t, either! All you need is some arm strength and a good rolling pin. Learn how to make, shape, cut, close, fold, and dress pasta in your kitchen with your own hands.
