You may remember that Chris and I took a pasta making class in Florence on our Honeymoon. It was a very personalized and private class, and it was a great experience. For some reason - I really couldn't remember how we made the pastas and when I tried to do it at home, and failed miserably. I have the pasta maker attachments for my kitchenaid stand mixer, and it was all very different from how we did it in Italy.
So, I signed us up for another pasta class at Sur La Table in Manhasset, NY, but this class also included 3 different sauces and 3 different types of pasta. We attended the class on Saturday and this place was so adorable! I had a very fun afternoon with the Hubs! When we arrived, we were each given an apron, a towel, and a clipboard with an information packet and our recipes for the day.
As these sauces cooked a little more, we got to work on actually creating the pasta. We were able to use the Kitchenaid pasta maker attachments or a hand crank that was on the tables. I used a hand crank maker when we were in Italy and since I have the KitchenAid attachments, I really wanted to get practice on using that, so I'd know what to do at home.

I also LOVED this place - though the classes are a little pricey, I think they are totally worth it for a once in a while treat to do with anyone: moms, friends, sisters, husbands, etc. Sur La Table has locations across the country, so they might be near you, too! I can say, that I will definitely be coming back here for more classes - but it's now time for me to venture out of the "pastas" and try some new things! Spanish tapas anyone?!
Did you ever take a cooking class with your boyfriend/fiancé/hubby, or just in general?
