Italy - Filippo Melfi - Ravioli Ricotta Spinach

Fresh pasta is a must. Did you know that when you fill the pasta you combine flavors and ingredients better? Shaping the ravioli, filling it and learning the different sauce combinations will make your creativity grow in the kitchen. In this class,I will teach you how to make homemade pasta. Don’t have a pasta machine? No worries, you will learn how to do this the old fashioned way, by hand. At the same time, you will also hear the history behind the shapes and why the flavor combinations need to be just right. We don’t want your filling to fall out during the boil, so be sure to ask questions on the proper ravioli sealing technique throughout the class.

Remember Italians use very few ingredients in every dish. Learn to cook ravioli with me and I will teach you how simple is best for the palette. At the end of the class, you will understand that less is more - with no more than 3 ingredients for the filling and 3 for the sauce. With this tip, you will be able to recreate the authentic tastes of Italy, time and time again.
