Free Pasta Workshop

Free Pasta Workshop

Ready to master fresh pasta making in time for spring? We got you.

Join us on Friday, February 23, for a free demonstration-style workshops on making fresh pasta. Starting at noon, you can learn the basics from a "Marietta" teacher from Casa Artusi, a center dedicated to regional Italian cuisine in Emilia-Romagna. In addition to a cooking school, Casa Artusi comprises a library, restaurant, wine cellar, bookshop, museum, and much more.

The Mariette are named for Marietta Sabatini, who was the trusted housekeeper and personal cook of Pellegrino Artusi, the inspirational figure behind Casa Artusi. "Faithful Marietta," as he called her, was an important influence on Pellegrino's work in the gastronomic world over the decades in the late 1800s. He is best known for writing Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well, the first modern Italian cookbook, and often called the grandfather of Italian cuisine.

Today, Casa Artusi honors Marietta with the Associazione delle Mariette, an association that promotes home cooking and local traditions in Emilia-Romagna through cooking classes, workshops, and more. Instead of following a set curriculum, each teacher shares his or her personal experiences in their home kitchens, humanizing the cooking experience.

During the free workshop on February 23, you will see how real home cooks in Emilia-Romagna hand-shape the regional specialty of fresh pasta, from stuffed bites of tortellini to long strands of tagliatelle. Through 2 p.m., a Marietta will be at Foodiversità, our "food university" in the northwest corner of the market.
