Pasta And Pesto-Making Workshop – Live From Genoa

12 April, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


You won’t want to miss this hand-rolled pasta and pesto-making workshop, live from Enrica Monzani’s kitchen in Genoa, Italy.

In this interactive workshop, Enrica will give us a little bit of history behind the basil sauce we have come to know and love, as well as the short, thin and twisted pasta, called trofie. Learn the technique to make pesto alla Genovese 2 ways: with a pestle and mortar and with a blender, as well as pesto’s “match made in heaven”: trofie pasta (see photo), one of Liguria’s classic pastas. Join along or watch and take notes.

An ingredients list and recipe booklet will be sent ahead of the workshop.

About our guest:

My name is Enrica and I’m the lady behind A Small Kitchen in Genoa.
I’m a home cook and a compulsive collector of traditional recipes from my region, Liguria. I tell the stories of our local dishes through words and images and I teach people how to cook them.

I believe local traditions are like roots that ground us. That’s why I am so passionate about sharing our regional food and getting people to discover all the little groceries and delis that have fed generations of Genoese. In doing so, I hope I can dust off them the debris of time and even more so, the aridity of globalisation.

I believe in authentic, seasonal foods, grown with love and in respect of the environment. I actively research and study local produce and Slow Food Presidia and tell the stories of the brave people behind them. READ MORE
