CAPPELLETTO, THE KING OF ROMAGNA TABLE - FRESH PASTA WORKSHOP

When?

Saturday 21st at 10.30 am

Where

Mercato Coperto - P.zza Andrea Costa - Ravenna

Duration

2 h

Would you like to learn how to roll out the dough to make a fantastic homemade pasta dish yourself?

 

This workshop is for you!

 

The “sfogline”* of the Mercato Coperto, bearers of rolling pin and wisdom, will teach you how to prepare the real cappelletto romagnolo.

*The “sfoglina” (pasta maker) is historically seen as a middle-aged woman who, using a rolling pin and a pastry board, "rolls the dough" strictly by hand to create the base for tagliatelle, tortellini and other stuffed and unstuffed egg pasta.

 

Cappelletti are, for Romagna, a dish charged with a symbolism of well-being, wealth and opulence. In the past, wishing "cappelletti on the table and throughout the year", was in fact one of the most heartfelt and appreciated wishes.

 

The experience will be complemented by a GUIDED TOUR OF THE MERCATO COPERTO by the staff, to discover the history, architecture, furnishings and enogastronomic thinking of the place

Participants will be provided with a kit with all the tools of the trade (chopping board, rolling pin, pasta cutter), Molino Spadoni Gran Mugnaio flour, local eggs, water and everything needed to make the dough. The dough will be previously prepared and provided to participants by the “sfoglina” herself, who will explain and show in her workstation, step by step, the method of preparation.
The “sfogline” will also teach all participants how to prepare the filling with traditional ingredients and will reveal all their secrets and the technique used to close the cappelletti "in the Romagna way".
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to take their freshly prepared pasta with them.
