Generosity | Confidence | Joy

These are the founding principles of Team Pasta, which was created to let people have fun getting messy in the kitchen, and to learn that when you cook with others, the need for perfection falls away. People like the sense of freedom and accomplishment that comes that comes from learning a new skill and then losing themselves in it. What better way to do that than through sculpting small bits of dough into tiny, humble, culinary miracles?

what they say

“Thank you for such a
wonderful time. Who knew you could make such amazing pasta shapes from flour and water?
My favorite, the sombreros. I am sure we’ll be getting in touch with you for another class soon.”


“I was surprised how easy and fun it was to make great pasta. I thought you were going to bring big, heavy, hand-cranked equipment. Not at all, just a couple bits of kitchenware and we were making cool pasta.
Jane is a lot of fun. I had a great time and would like her to come back and do it again.”


“To start, the lesson was educational along with getting to know how simple pasta can be to make. What impressed me was that Jane let the group’s creativity come out, along with her ease with the different age groups. It was delightful!”


let's get messy!

go team!
