Adorable Italian Nonna Offers Virtual Pasta-Making Classes From Home Near Rome
If, like many of us, your supermarket pasta shelf is looking particularly bare at the moment, then we've got the perfect solution for you.
Introducing Nonna Live - the grandmother in Rome, Italy, teaching us how to make pasta from the comfort of her home.
Before the coronavirus crisis, Nonna Nerina, 84, invited people into her kitchen as part of an Airbnb experience named 'Homemade pasta with grandma' to learn the art of making fresh, Italian pasta from scratch.
But, given that the whole world is being asked to socially distance to tackle COVID-19, Nonna is now live-streaming her pasta making workshops so that we can all still enjoy a carb fest.
Those booked onto Nonna Live will be treated to a two-hour livestream cooking class, for just £42 ($50).
During the class, Nonna and Nipote (her granddaughter) Chiara will walk you through their family recipes - some of which go back more than 100 years.
Favourites they often teach include fettuccine, lasagne, gnocchi with pesto and cannelloni, as well as ravioli with butter sage sauce. Yum.
A week before your class, you'll receive a shopping list of ingredients to stock up on, and a link to an Amazon store for any utensils you might need (although, Nonna promises you'll probably have most of it already!).
Then, as the class draws closer you'll receive some more detailed notes from Nonna herself, translated into English. And should you fancy it, Nonna will send you some wine pairings, too.
If you want to get in on the fun then you'd better be quick, as lessons are filling up fast.
Nonna is only teaching on the weekend when she's feeling up to it (after all, she is 84...) and the rest of the time, the classes will be taken by her grandchild.
If Nonna is under the weather for any of her scheduled classes, her sister will step in.
