Description

The inspiration for A Tavola (meaning “to the table”) derives from head chef and owner Eugenio Maiale’s childhood. As a child Maiale would play in the backyard of his Adelaide home waiting to hear the chime of “A Tavola” when dinner was ready.

On Maiale’s family kitchen table were consistently simple, honest and traditional style dishes. It was a daily ritual, almost a meditation, for his Mother to maker her own pasta – from ravioli and tortellini to tagliolini. She passed her knowledge onto Eugenio who further developed these techniques during his childhood visits to Italy. He would watch his relatives make an assortment of pastas, including pappardelle and gnocchi, rolling the pasta on big wooden tables either by hand or with broom handles.

Maiale has continued this concept of simple and elegant food with his first Sydney restaurant. The cuisine can be described as predominantly “Abruzzese” (a region north-east of the boot, next to Rome), with a heavy emphasis on dried and fresh pasta cooked to order. His dream was to create a unique Italian experience. He has done this by creating what has been described as a “euro chic” dining space which revolves around a 10metre long communal Indian marble table.

Fantastic course and great value! We were blown away with the whole experience. It was fun and we learnt a lot. Didn't realise how simple it is to make pasta. The chefs were fantastic. Very down to earth and helpful. They treated us to a lunch at the end which was incredible! Thanks again and I would highly recommend this for couples, friends, corporate functions or even client gifts.

We were impressed by the class - a good number of participants and lots of hands-on help from the chefs. We have made pasta at home and appreciated tips for refining the process. Lunch was delicious & it was great to take home our pasta!

This was one of the easiest classes I have attended - and by that I don't mean the actual class was easy, but I mean lack of hassle. What incredibly easygoing and pleasant people. They seemed to be genuinely delighted to have people along to their restaurant and to share their knowledge. Pepyn was a very clear and patient instructor. The lunch to follow was extremely generous in portions and very tasty. To me this sort of generosity of spirit is what genuine hospitality in the restaurant industry should be about. I wholeheartedly recommend this course
