Taste Freshly Made Pasta - and Get Your Hands In Some Flour If You Like Too!
If you've ever enjoyed freshly made pasta, then you know: it's ethereal texture and
toothsomeness means with just a little sauce and maybe some sprinkled cheese, it makes
a meal heavenly! Join us for a class on fresh pasta making - and yes, you can actually
make your own pasta in the class..by hand, if you like! Learn how the most simple and
basic ingredients - flour, eggs, salt, and olive oil - can come together to make a treasure.
In this demonstration (or hands-on if you choose) class taught by Chef Carmine Marzano
(see MENU and Bio Below), you will learn how to make and shape fresh pasta at home(and
receive detailed recipes) followed by a full lunch (Lunch is included in the price of the class).
Representative Italian wines paired with the dishes can be purchased at the event for an additional cost..

Carmine Marzano Bio
Born in Calabria, Italy, and raised in Turin, Carmine Marzano acquired a passion for cooking
at an early age and inherited a culinary flair from his father. He trained professionally 
at Istituto Alberghiero Statale di Pienerolo. After 3 years as executive chef at the exclusive
Ristorante Giudice in Turin, Carmine came to the U.S. to assist Roberto Donna with the 
opening of Galileo. While serving as sous chef for Galileo for 4 years, Marzano met and 
married Deborah Bruzzo, daughter of the Corrado Bruzzo -- owner of Washington's famed 
Luigi's restaurant. In 1993, Carmine opened Ristorante Luigino which he ran for 15 years 
before returning to family-owned Luigi's.

    The Pasta making was really fun and tasted even better - the ravioli with the short-rib stuffing was so savory and delicious!
