With pasta the hero, we will teach you to perfect 5 key Italian pasta dressings or sauces takes your pasta game to the next level. Once you master these, they become the backbone of many different dishes. Knowing how to nail these sauces (with secrets from Nonna), is the key to producing restaurant quality Italian food at home.

Outstanding. I was so looking forward to the pasta making and I was not disappointed. I learned so much more than just making pasta. Lance is generous in every way and has an incredible knowledge of Italian cooking. The way the course was planned, prepped and executed, meant we all participated in a non-threatening environment. Willem made sure we were all looked after in a quiet, unobtrusive way. The food was delicious. (Of course! We had made it!) I simply loved the whole day. Worth every penny. Have already booked for the Sourdough class.
