Evenings at ABC: Hand Rolled Pasta
August 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
There may be no more exciting thing than hand made pasta. Even better, pasta made with your hands alone. Spend an evening with Craig Ponsford and take a dive into the traditional hand rolled pastas from Southern Italy.
Using only your hands, we will shape the dough in various shapes such as cavatelli, orecchiette, busiati, fusilli and more. From seasonal recipes we will make a few simple sauces and sit down to enjoy the fruits of our labors together!
Dinner and wine will be served.
