Mira I.

I took a pasta making class with Aunt V, the hands-on experience of crafting our own tortellini was very enjoyable. The chef's demonstrations were insightful, making each intricate fold and twist seem much simpler than I had initially thought. Their emphasis on the importance of using quality ingredients and their insights into flavor combinations elevated the final result to an extraordinary level.
