Spaghetti, Meatballs, & Beyond!

Date: Jun 5

Beyond Spaghetti & Meatballs! Unveiling the Magic of Italian Pasta!

Join us for a delicious deep dive into the world of Italian Pasta! This one-hour webinar will separate the fettuccine from the farfalle, taking you on a whirlwind tour of Italy’s most iconic food.

We’ll Dish Up:

  • A Pasta Odyssey: Explore the history and origin myths behind different pasta shapes. Did ravioli really come from Venus’ navel?
  • The Legends of Long Pasta: Unravel the mysteries of spaghetti, linguine, and fettuccine. Were they inspired by a royal haircut?
  • Demystifying Short Shapes: We’ll get to the bottom of penne, fusilli, and the infamous “priest chokers” (Strozzapreti) – you won’t believe the story behind that name!
  • A Regional Romp: Discover how pasta shapes vary across Italy – from the twirls of orecchiette in Puglia to the ridged goodness of pappardelle in Tuscany. 🇮🇹

  • You’re a pasta enthusiast who wants to know more than just how to cook it.
  • You’re curious about Italian culture and traditions.
  • You’re planning a trip to Italy and want to impress the locals with your pasta knowledge.
