In this hands-on cooking workshop, we will make naturally-dyed pasta from scratch. First, you'll learn how to make a rainbow of dyes out of 100% natural foods, such as turmeric, beets, flowers, and spinach. Next, we will use our natural dyes to create a rainbow assortment of pasta dough. Finally, you will learn how to roll and cut the dough into myriad shapes, like beautiful butterflies and rainbow strozzapreti. We will serve up one batch of pasta with a simple sauce and tips for preparing your own perfect pasta dishes at home. Just in time for you to practice on the handmade pretty pasta dough you will bag up and take with you.
