With the guidance of Chef Gianni Scappin, the group learn how to make, roll and cut several types of pasta—by hand and with a pasta machine—along with a few basic sauces. It was a hands-on class and everyone left with full belly and some of their own freshly made pasta ready to cook at home.
The pasta tasting was paired with wines from Hudson Wine Merchants.
