Southern Hand-Formed Pasta Shapes Class

The class was a lot of fun and I was able to invite my sister to join me in my kitchen. The instructor set a good pace between demonstrations with lots of time to practice ask questions. The time went by quickly and by the end we had learned how to make three kinds of pasta doughs and five pasta shapes. We also explored our own kitchen to discover unexpected pastabilities for creating new pasta textures. Highly recommend.
