Learn the foundations of pasta making from Chef Julia, a trained "pastaia" — pasta maker — in this interactive cooking class. To begin, you'll whip up a vibrant pesto to toss with endives and arugula for a fresh bite to start the meal. Then you'll learn the art of preparing tagliatelle pasta by hand with the guidance of Chef Julia. You'll top this special pasta with a robust tomato sauce. For dessert, you'll fry angle hair pasta to create a crunchy base for a sweet dessert topped with crème fraîche, nutty pistachios and honey.
