Pasta making workshops are super entertaining for kids and also a great way to introduce kids to healthy and tasty food.
How is the class structured?
On arrival, kids will find the ingredients laid out and ready to be used. The class will kick off with some information about pasta.
The workshop is entirely hands-on. After a demonstration of how to make, colour the dough and make the polka dots, every kid will make his/her own tortelli. Colourful pasta is fun and healthy made with the best seasonal produce from farmers in England.
After all the hard work, every kid gets to take the pasta home.
