  1. This looks so fun. My husband is European and we are planning an italy trip sometime in the near future (we’ve been to several Euro countries between us but never italy).. im totally recommending this!

  2. Mmmm. I love cookery classes when I travel – I have done a few in Asia but only made gelato in Italy (which was fantastic). I’d love to make pasta like this though, the ingredients in Italy are always so good, even the really simple things taste amazing. Thanks for linking up with #citytripping

  3. This looks so much fun – and so delicious too! My dad makes fresh pasta sometimes and it is the best thing in the world. I love the idea of taking cooking classes as you travel – I would definitely like to try this sometime soon 🙂 #WanderfulWednesday

  4. I watch tons of cooking shows and they make pasta all the time. I have contemplated making my own many times. A class will be ideal because I would not know where to start. It looks so easy on TV but I am sure there are certain tricks involved. I miss cooking classes in general. I used to take some before I got married.

  5. OMG this looks like so much fun… and it looks delicious! I went to a wedding expo a few months back and they wanted me to register for a pasta maker. We rarely coo, we should actually cook more, and I was like nah. BUT maybe I should now ha!

  6. I love taking cooking classes when traveling. I did one in Spain and one in Thailand. I would love to learn the authentic way of making pasta in Italy! Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard.

  7. That sounds like a lot of fun – reminds me of when I use to make handmade pasta with my grandmother growing up! Cooking classes and workshops are almost always a good idea! We did a similar cooking class in Rome and had dinner with a local chef and it was interesting to meet the other travelers and learn about traditional Italian cooking.

  8. I think it must have been a very interesting experience. I’ve see a cooking school like this at Mercato Centrale, when I was in Florence. It never occurred to me to get in there and learn how to cook how an Italian though. I don’t really like spending time in the kitchen. #TheWeeklyPostcard

  9. Freshly made pasta tastes so much better than store bought packages. To make it in Italy, in Florence no less? How divine! #TheWeeklyPostcard

  10. Ohhh yes!! I was just telling my husband we really need to start doing some cooking classes / food tours when we travel. We’re always on a budget so we never do anything! I should learn from my pops how to make gnocchi before he passes! Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard!

  11. Thanks for taking us along to your cooking class, Sara! Sounds like a great way to learn to make a favorite dish from scratch. It reminded me of my childhood; both my grandmas used to make pasta from scratch, one preferred the water-based, the other egg-based, so I learned how to make both… I still don’t do it; you are right, you need strong arms to knead it, and it takes a lot more time than taking it out of the box. I think I made it once or twice since I live in the US, but you inspired me to make a batch soon. 🙂 Love your photos! Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard.

  12. I would be so afraid to totally mess up and create a dish that’s nothing like the example (and that tastes awful) 😀 Seems like a really interesting experience, though!!

  13. This looks so fun! Nothing tastes as good as handmade pasta 🙂 Now I just need to find a class that does a GF version!

  14. How fun! I’d love to take a pasta class. And get the kitchen aid attachment. We just never have time to cook … let alone make pasta. Nevertheless I’d love for you to send me some of the pasta recipes and especially that easy sauce! Tomato, basil, and olive oil are always a good combination!

  15. what a great cooking pasta, I love pasta for dinner but as we Nepalese, we don’t have much choice than Nepali dal bhat and champa.

  16. I would love to try to make homemade pasta, looks like a great time. Your picture of the tomatoes and basil looks delicious! #theweeklypostcard

  17. I really enjoy doing cooking classes abroad. I’ve done one in Italy before and was also amazed at how simple but delicious the pasta and sauce tasted. Great activity and skill to bring home! Thanks for linking #citytripping
