Pasta, pasta, pasta!

Syd Workshops will delve into the delicious textures, aromas and tastes of homemade pasta. We will learn the art of making pasta, without all the fancy machinery and using primarily our hands. We are thinking it will be a mix of pastas- fettuccine, gnocchi, ravioli & bowtie...just a few of my favourites. This workshop is going to be such a fun workshop and would make the perfect date night (or just give your partner some 'different meal' ideas too). This workshop is apart of the culinary takeover happening in Downtown Tauranga for the Taste Tauranga festivities.
