Ancient Grain Pasta



Hourly Schedule

11am - 2pm
28th February

With Angela Palermo (from the Village Cooks)

Long before ‘00’ flour the differences between pastas was not just in their shapes but in the flavour and texture of the grains that were used. Angela Palermo knows her pasta history and has a lot of love for the heirloom grains that made a humble bowl of pasta such a nourishing meal. Today these grains are having a revival because they are nutritiously dense, easier to digest and have rich complex flavours you can’t get from plain flour. In this workshop Angela will introduce two of her favourite grains: spelt and kamut, discuss their individual flavour and nutritional profiles and teach you how to use them in your everyday pasta making. Learn to make a pumpkin filled kamut ravioli that you will cook and eat in class. Make hand rolled pici using spelt flour to take home. This class is a great chance to expand your knowledge of grains and flours for more wholesome home cooking.

In this class you will:

  • Make to eat in class kamut flour ravioli with a roast pumpkin filling
  • Make to take home hand rolled pici made with spelt flour
  • Learn how to use a pasta machine and methods for hand rolling and cutting
  • Learn about a variety of ancient grains and how to use them as replacements for refined flours in your cooking

What to expect in a Cornersmith workshop
All our workshops are relaxed with a focus on home cooking skills. We keep our numbers small (12-16 people) to maximize your experience, and engagement with the topic and the teacher. You will leave with the knowledge and confidence to continue your cooking adventures at home. 

In our hands-on workshops, you will make a number of recipes, with some to enjoy in class and the rest to take home, along with all of the recipes. We recommend bringing a few spare jars or containers to these workshops (in case any extra is made) and a carry bag to take your bounty home in. 

In our demonstration classes, you will be shown the recipe/s step by step, with plenty of tasters along the way. There is no need for spare jars or containers in these classes. If you are unsure of what type your class is, please check the description of your workshop on our website or call 02 8964 7463
