Touring around Europe in their VW Camper Van Jack and Alex from Cambridge, England found their way to Palazzo Tronconi and embarked on a Pasta Making Class with our brilliant Pasta Chef Milly! This is what they had to say...
"Palazzo Tronconi as exclusive as it gets let the magic begin...."
We had expected to be thrown into the deep end; making our first fresh pasta through learning by mistakes. However, this was not to be the case as chef Milly masterfully demonstrated the correct technique for creating several delicious pasta dishes. When it came to our turn, we were surprised just how tough the pasta dough was to knead - chef Milly has muscles!!
The room was filled with animated cookery conversations from start to finish, it was a great atmosphere to be in the company of such a passionate chef. Enjoying the fruits of our labour with Palazzo Tronconi's own wine and sharing it all around together was a wonderful way to finish to the evening.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience leaving us with plenty of ideas for the future!
TO BOOK A PASTA MAKING CLASS AT PALAZZO TRONCONIHERE
I am still trying to work out how we pulled this one off, a true comedy moment, myself the winemaker, a head chef and a pizza maker squeezed into the smallest of cars, a fiat, with pots, pans and ingredients, including eggs, all en route to the UK for a small taster of what we offer at our cookery classes here at Palazzo Tronconi, Arce.
Hosted by Jo Mackay owner of www.bookingsforyou.com in her beautiful Surrey home, we bought the flavours of Italy to her kitchen. The event kicked off with Head Chef Leonard Grimaldi, presenting a step by step class of a four course menu.
Everyone seemed genuinely interested in what we had to offer, the bloggers and writers were intrigued by our own biodynamic wines, whilst enjoying the flavours of our region.
Later in the evening 15 guests were invited to take part in a pizza making class with Giuseppe Marcuccili.
A completely different atmosphere to the earlier class, this was messy, fun and noisy, the results were incredible, four types of pizzas all made with the same dough but each with different toppings. Lots of pleasing sounds came from the guests as each pizza was presented hot out of the oven! Thank you to Jo and bookingsforyou.com and to everyone that came for your wonderful write-ups!
