What we’ll do

In this class I’ll share with you all the secrets of the kings of Bologna: tortellini. These little pasta squares are famous and appreciated all over the world.

During the class I’ll tell you some anecdotes about the tortellino legend, for example why it’s associated with Venus navel. I’ll teach you the technique of filling, folding and rounding tortellini around a finger – here in Bologna we use the pinky. Then, I’ll show you how to prepare a good meat broth, because tortellini must be served and eaten “in brodo”.

Every time I prepare tortellini I think of my grandmother Fernanda. She was my teacher and gave me the passion for cooking. I spent a lot of hours with her, looking at her hands full of flour that, like magic, made perfect tortellini. She made me repeat tortellino procedure over and over again until the closing was perfect. Preparing tortellini with her has made me an expert, so I’m happy to share with you the secrets of Gradma Fernanda!

We’ll also learn how to prepare an excellent tiramisù, the quintessential Italian dessert, using the traditional recipe.
