An evening with Carla Tomasi and Vicky Bennison from Pasta Grannies, Friday 31 May

Friday 31 May, from 7.30 pm

Meet the face behind the incredible Pasta Grannies project – that has taken the YouTube world by storm – that documents, granny by granny, traditional pasta recipes from all over Italy.  Vicky will be talking about her many and varied journeys all over the country to record family recipes and the secrets of the nonne, while Carla keeps everyone fed with a fresh made pasta meal, local wine and other treats.

This event will help fund a new stove for the studio – thank you Carla and thank you Vicky.  Tickets are 40 euro each including booking fee, click here to book.

Market to Table 2019 dates

Market to Table is a special series of appointments created by Rachel Roddy, Carla Tomasi and Alice Adams for visitors to Rome.  The idea is to start at the market, mostly Testaccio, Rachel’s local, where we fill bags and baskets with the best of the season.  We then walk back across the river to Trastevere and up to the latteria studio kitchen where Carla (or Alice) awaits – with more produce from her garden in Ostia.

Ravioli del Mondo | Dumplings of the World – NEW DATES

A series of evening classes, from October to December 2018, see dates below.

Every culture has a way of wrapping up simple ingredients into small parcels, which once cooked by various methods; steaming, boiling, baking and frying, create meals that so often come to symbolize the way that country or region eats. Beyond the ravioli of various Italian regions there are the (countless) dumplings of China and other parts of Asia, the Samosas of India, Polish Pierogi and Russian Pelmeni.

Making fresh pasta is much of the day, as well as trimming, cutting and prepping the vegetables and other morsels that will make up part of a very convivial shared lunch.

 

The dates for 2018 are listed below.  They will be available to book (with a deposit) three months out from each class – you can click on the link to do so.  If you are coming to Rome on a date that doesn’t match please feel free to enquire about a private class with either Carla or Alice.
