Join Leta Norton and Meredith Mortensen for an outing to the farm! We’ll be meeting at The Croft Farm on Sauvie Island for a fun-filled day of pasta making, veggie harvesting , seasonal sauce lessons, and an elegant dinner in the field. We will be sourcing our produce and eggs from right on the farm, and take a tour of the farm in between pasta class and dinner.
What to expect:
Class will include all instruction, tools, recipes and ingredients.
Each student will enjoy some light nibbles upon arrival, plus sparkling water, and wine or beer during dinner.
We’ll be making a dough with eggs and wheat flour.
There will be some demo, and lots of time for hands-on pasta shaping.
Class will end with a regional Italian meal, including antipasti, salad, pasta and dessert.
Each participant will leave with a box of the pasta they made during class.
Date: Saturday 8/10/19
6:00pm - 9:00pm
