Have you ever wanted to know how to make pasta? And not just any old pasta, how to make pasta like an Italian? Me too.
Well, during my recent stay in Bologna I went to pasta school to find out. And sadly I’m still not all clued up but I do have a better idea now than before. Here’s what I learnt at arguably the home of Italian cooking, Cas’Artusi, a library and cookery school dedicated to the life and works of Pellegrino Artusi. Although this man is credited with writing the first Italian cookbook, he collated most of research from and was greatly assisted by his housekeeper, a woman called Marietta Sabatini, who supported Mr. Artusi in his research.
