Orecchiette and Cavatelli are made with durum wheat flour and are originally from the South but made and eaten all over Italy.
Orecchiette, their name comes from their shape, which resembles a small ear, from Italian orecchia, meaning 'ear', and -etta, meaning 'small'.
Cavatelli are a variant of orecchiette called orecchie di prete (priest's ears) and resemble little hollows.
They are typically served with a vegetable sauce. You will taste them with fresh made pesto alla genovese during the class.
On Sunday, September 29, 2:00 – 4:00 PM, ICC instructor and native Italian, Romina Montanari, will lead this hands-on pasta making session at Mid-City Kitchen, a beautiful space in St. Paul.
Romina will demonstrate the process, and then it will be your turn to create some orecchiette and cavatelli of your own! Each participant will enjoy a glass of wine and some pasta to taste and will bring their orecchiette and cavatelli they just made home.
Cost for the event is $50 for members, and $60 for non-members. All ingredients are included, but please bring two flat trays with two flour sack kitchen towels to carry your orecchiette and cavatelli home.
