Last night I took a pasta making workshop at Taste Matakana, in Warkworth. The students were all lovely ladies (no men! Usually there are always men at my pasta workshops, they like the pasta machine!) and very confident cooks too. It was a pleasure to teach them, and to get to know them.
We were a bit too busy mixing dough and rolling pasta, and talking, and I forgot to take photos, (also, my hands were full of flour). I took out my iPhone only at the end, when we were eating...
We made different types of pasta: plain, coloured, filled, with herbs, with roses... and a couple of simple pasta sauces. Below some images of the leftovers!
Thank you Andrea for organizing the class, to all the staff at Taste Matakana, and to my enthusiastic students: I hope that last night you went home inspired, and that you will make fresh pasta very soon!
