Description

When you think of Italian lasagna, you’re probably thinking of Lasagne alla Bolognese, a traditional dish from Emilia-Romagna. This recipe features egg pasta layered with “Bolognese” ragù (named for Bologna, the capital of Emilia-Romagna), and creamy béchamel. We know, it's no surprise that this tasty dish is one of the most ancient pasta recipes on record. Once you try it, you’ll want to be eating it for centuries yet to come.

Join us at La Scuola di Eataly Toronto for a unique experience which begins with an antipasto board prepared for you by our Scuola Chef. Next, you will prepare the lasagne simultaneously with the Chef who will share the story behind the dish and give you expert instructions on how to prepare this classic Italian dish at home. End your experience tasting your lasagna creation straight out of the oven and sip on a selected wine pairing. 

In this class guests will:

  • Learn about the story behind the dish and how to prepare it at home

  • Enjoy antipasto prepared by our chef and your very own lasagna

  • Sip on wine that is paired perfectly by our beverage experts 

  • Take home a delicious dessert from our Pasticceria

Menu:

  • Lasagna con Ragù alla Bolognese

Lasagne is often assumed to be from Emilia-Romagna, the northern region known for its rich ingredients and fertile land. However, rectangular sheets of pasta were first layered with a creamy sauce in the south, around Napoli, in the Middle Ages. It wasn’t until the 19th century when lasagne experienced a belated renaissance in Bologna. The recipe was baked as a dish of honour prepared by noble families to demonstrate their wealth of ingredients. Jacopone da Todi wrote this quartina in the 13th century, proving that lasagne is indeed one of the oldest types of pasta in Italy. Accordingly, lasagne has layers (see what we did there?) of history.
