Cannelloni are a cylindrical type of lasagna served baked with a filling, traditionally ricotta and spinach, and covered by a sauce, typically tomato sauce. In Italian cannelloni literally means "big pipes" or "big reeds" — magic pasta tubes filled with savoury stuffing. Early references to macheroni ripieni (stuffed pasta) can be traced back to 1970, but the word cannelloni seems to have appeared at the turn of the 20th century. 

Join us for a unique in-person experience to learn all the secrets behind the preparation of the perfect cannelloni.

The class will kick off with a delicious appetizer prepared for you by our chef and paired with a welcome prosecco. Our chef will also demo how to prepare fresh egg pasta dough from scratch and you can get answers to all your pasta questions.

You will then try your hand at cooking, assembling your very own cannelloni ricotta e spinaci. End your experience tasting your cannelloni creation straight out of the oven and sip on a selected wine pairing.

In this class guests will:

  • Learn about cannelloni and how to make it at home 
  • Enjoy a welcome appetizer and taste their own cannelloni creation
  • Sip on wine and learn how to find the perfect pairing
  • Take home the menu and adapted recipes
