Aldo shows us how to make our own spaghetti…
A cookery class with renowned chef Aldo Zilli – making our own pasta and gnocchi from scratch, watching Aldo whip up pasta sauces and purees. Along with three other girls I was taking part in Aldo’s first Baby Zilli cookery masterclass; although the healthy tips and delicious recipes were ideal for all of us too.
Aldo also runs full-day masterclasses – the Baby Zilli classes are about to launch, probably taking place on Monday nights (see Aldo’s website for more details). After rolling out our pasta and chopping up our gnocchi, we took to the restaurant where we enjoyed dinner and wine with Aldo himself. Salmon fishcakes, bruschetta, pasta pomodoro (our own handmade!) and gnocchi. A wonderful family man with a wicked sense of humour; anyone who attends these classes is sure to have a brilliant day or evening out.
A-mazing desert platter – yes we polished it all off!
