Fresh Pasta with Peter Barrett, Cook Blog

  • 2:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

We are super excited to welcome Peter Barrett, Cook Blog, into our kitchen for this in-depth exploration of fresh pasta making.  Of all the things we learn and do here, making fresh pasta always feels like Christmas morning–everyone giddy with eyes all aglow–and this workshop will be no exception.  Peter has banked some quality time in Italy perfecting this craft, so come prepared to learn!

We’ll start with a traditional egg pasta dough, rolling out sheets both by hand and with a machine, making flat noodles like fettuccine and tagliatelle, before venturing into stuffed pasta territory using ravioli stamps to make Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli and Smoked Carrot Agnolotti.  We’ll also tint some dough with beet juice and dabble with rolling herbs into dough to heighten both looks and flavour.

We’ll also work with a semolina dough using gnocchi boards to make fresh cavatelli, before blowing your minds with how simple it is to make your own orecchiette.  Once we’ve made a few batches, we’ll boil everyone up and have a taste of what we’ve made.

$85 per student includes 3hr hands-on workshop and recipes PLUS eat-what-you-make.  Everyone will get to take home some of the dough we make in class to impress folks at home with your newfound pasta-making skills.  This is a technique-based workshop, so our focus will be on perfecting the art of forming various pastas and less about making fillings and sauces — though of course, recipes will be provided for all.
