Description

Every day at Eataly, our pastai, or pastamakers, transform simple ingredients into intricate pasta shapes inspired by the rich traditions of every Italian region using simple high-quality ingredients. Making fresh pasta may seem daunting, but it is a simple luxury that you can enjoy every day.

We want to welcome you to La Scuola di Eataly for an in-person class focused on learning all the secrets behind southern Italian traditions when preparing fresh pasta.

Stretched between the Adriatic and Ionian seas, Puglia’s sun-soaked landscape in southern Italy is celebrated for its culinary traditions, like handmade pasta.

Join us to learn how to knead semolina pasta dough and learn about the art of fresh unfilled pasta making. Our Scuola chef will demonstrate how to make and shape some of Eataly's favourite fresh pastas. Think cavatelli, orecchiette or capunti.

The experience will start with a dinner. Our chef will prepare for you two different and delicious southern Italian pasta dishes to enjoy along with a glass of wine for a perfectly traditional Italian meal.

Guests will then get to try their hand at rolling out the dough and forming their own shapes (think: cavatelli, orecchiette, and pici). 

You will be surprised at what you can create, making fresh pasta at home opens up a whole world of authentic — and surprisingly easy — Italian cooking.

Top off your experience with a dessert to take home from our Pasticceria.

  • Learn about fresh pasta and how to make it at home
