Finally got some pics downloaded from the pasta making demonstration we gave for the local “Gourmet Gals” MeetUp.com group. A good time was had by all and everyone’s interest in traveling to Italy was piqued by the discussion…and the tasty grub.
The nice lady in the background was making gnocchi…needless to say, no one went home hungry.
I look thrilled, don’t I? At least my lovely wife lights up the room even when I have my serious wannabe chef face on.
Pappardelle are great in many ways. Thick noodles really soak up the sauce and are fun to eat, and you can cut a bunch in a hurry.
Time to cook ‘em! We had them with someone else’s arrabiata sauce…it was darn good, but not as spicy as I’d make it. Then again my idea of not spicy enough has most folks in tears and reaching for a glass of milk. A good time was had by all. Note to self: check to see if the host has any reggiano before you start! I neglected to like a dummy, and where’s the fun in that? It’s all about the cheese! Mi piace molto il formaggio.
