Celebrate World Pasta Day!Date: October 25th 2018
Join us at La Cucina Caldesi on October 25th as we celebrate World Pasta Day with live pasta making demos, the largest collection of pasta shapes outside of Italy along with guidance on what sauces go best with each, hot bowls of 5 fabulous authentic pasta dishes to enjoy and the Caldesi ‘Pastafesto’ to takeaway.
We’ll also have a range of some very special dried pasta from the heal of Italy on sale and signed copies of the Caldesi’s latest cookery book ‘The Long and Short of Pasta’.
The tasters of pasta on the day have been chosen by Giancarlo from the book to demonstrate the true range and versatility of the Italian’s national dish they include:-
Cocoa ravioli stuffed with gorgonzola and walnuts – The cocoa pasta has a rich nuttiness that works fabulously with the Gorgonzola picante stuffing and is served in a sage and lemon butter sauce… delish!
Fettuccine with Memmo’s Ragu – A true Tuscan beef ragu the recipe for which has been passed down for generations and was taught to Giancarlo by his father.
Cacio e Pepe – A Roman classic of spaghetti with pepper and cheese with an exciting twist as Giancarlo will be finishing the dish in a whole half wheel of Pecorino Romano cheese.
Lasagna Forno – Giancarlo learned this dish from his Mother and we have been told it’s quite simply the best lasagna you’ll ever eat.
Linguine with crab and cream – The combination of fresh white and dark crab meat give this dish a full flavour which is finished with a hint of a chilli kick which is tempered by the cream.
Tickets for the event are £10 each for each 45 minute demo session and includes your choice of one bowl of pasta (others can be purchased on the day) with £1 from each bowl of pasta being donated to Action Against Hunger.
