  • Sardinia Cooking Class: Fresh Handmade Pasta

    6. Sardinia Cooking Class: Fresh Handmade Pasta

    Visit Sardinia's capital city, Sinna, a small town located near Cagliari where you can still see the typical Campidanese-style houses in its historical center.  In one of these houses, under the supervision of the skilful hands of a local woman, your host, you will learn how to make different types of local and national traditional pasta. Each pasta you make will be characterized with different colors and flavors: malloreddus (Sardinian gnocchi), culugiones (a special kind of ravioli) as well as ordinary ravioli and tagliatelle.  Later, cook pasta with your host and eat together, accompanying your meal with a lovely local wine.

    I highly recommend you book this experience, it is amazing! Isabella and Valerio are very kind and funny people. They picked us up and drove us to a beautiful house were we took the pasta making class. Every step was explained very well and they were very supportive and encouraging in their teaching methods, which was great because I am a far from natural cook :-) After the class we enjoyed some delicious snacks, drinks and our self-made pasta in their lovely garden.
