Handmade Pasta: My Skillshare Class is Live!

Handmade Pasta: My Skillshare Class is Live!

 

Finally, my dream of being an instructor on Skillshare has come true! Last weekend I wrote, filmed, performed in, and edited my very own twenty-minute class on how to make, you guessed it, handmade pasta. I used two DSLR cameras and my iPhone as a mic, placed out of frame and then synced up the audio later. It’s surely low budget (the second DSLR was a lucky addition, thanks mom!), but the class has a lot of heart and I tried to pack in everything I’ve learned over the past few years.Skillshare3

Here’s a preview of what the class looks like on Skillshare. There are five videos that are part of the class, and two bonus demos of me making two types of pasta without voiceover (tagliatelle and farfalle). In this class, you’ll learn how to mix dough, knead it, and use a pasta maker to roll it out and cut it into strips

You’ll also learn a little about different pasta gadgets, from a sifter to a fluted pastry wheel, and different types of pasta machines you may encounter.

It’s a very general class, doesn’t go into the specifics of dough components and the science of why this food works—that’s for a later class. Right now, you learn how to just make the dough, and then from there you can extrapolate and create all kinds of shapes.

For the intermediate level, I want to teach students how to make stuffed pastas, like tortellini and ravioli, and use different natural additives to make all kinds of crazy colors (green, red, yellow, black, etc). That one will be so fun!
