Remember losing yourself in mud pies and Play-Doh?
The tactile wonder of it all?

Team Pasta makes cooking a joy. And few things bring more
satisfaction than a sense of accomplishment and a full belly.

From the humble ingredients of flour and water and the tools
you were born with, you can create one of the most profound
and gratifying meals: a steaming bowl of pasta.

A take-home skill, you can share this gift
with friends and family for many meals to come.

“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.”


what they say

“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!”
