Learn how to make pasta like an Italian! Artisan means made from scratch and using age-old techniques, we make a classic egg pasta, to be transformed into delicious fettuccini. Then, using the basic pasta-making technique, we incorporate colourful herbs and vegetables to make fettuccini in a variety of colours. You can also opt to make your fettuccini suitable for vegans. Your pasta will be ready to take home to cook for a lovely meal. Instructions on how to dry the pasta or freeze it for future use will be given. Easy sauce recipes will also be discussed. This workshop is fully hands-on. (Sorry - not suitable for people with a gluten intolerance). TIME 10am to 12.15pm.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER Maria's training in making pasta has come from her Italian heritage and is a skill she learnt from her nonna and mother. We work in her kitchen, which is generously sized, with lovely views to her garden, full of fruit trees and organic vegetables. The eggs we use may well have come from her own chickens, ensuring freshness, as will all the herbs used in making the pasta. Maria understands the limitations that everyday cooks face and so her workshop is practical and above all do-able in your own kitchen.

Getting back to basics is what My Green Garden is about.
This is done by providing an experienced resource for presentations, demonstrations and workshops on many aspects of sustainable gardening practices, especially in the area of growing and preserving food.
With many years working in the nursery industry, backed up with education training and experience, Maria from My Green Garden knows how to cater and adjust content for the various levels of expertise present in different groups.
Making it practical, achievable and fun is what we're about and having most classes and workshops run from a home setting in leafy Donvale, shows that you don't need specialist equipment to get great results. We focus on using tools and ingredients that most kitchens or gardens would already have. Above all, it is about giving participants the know-how and the confidence to do it themselves!
