Food lovers wanting to improve their Italian cookery skills are being invited to sign up for special pasta making masterclasses with Italian restaurant owner Angelo Fichera.
Taking place at the recently opened Peppina Canteen on Institute Road, Swanage, the masterclasses will teach tips, tricks and techniques handed down to Angelo through generations of his Sicilian family.
Guests will enjoy an informal evening of good food, prosecco and chat during the intimate events which will last 2-3 hours. The first masterclass is due to take place on Sunday 17 November.
Angelo said: “I’m so excited to start running my masterclasses and pass on the knowledge I have built up to others!
“I learned the art of creating fantastic pasta dishes from my grandmother Peppina, the restaurant’s namesake, when I was a boy in Sicily. Peppina taught me everything from making the dough to which ingredients complement each other for the sauces.
“I also spent two months living in Milan where I took an intensive pasta making course so I have a lot of knowledge to share with people.
“I like to think of my restaurant as my home so I really want to make these masterclasses a relaxed environment where people can enjoy themselves and the food they are making, all while learning some skills which might help to impress at their next dinner party!
“The group sizes will be limited to 8 so it really will be an intimate evening of food and fun.”
As well as the pasta masterclasses, Angelo is also launching his own take on a kids party, where children will get creative in the kitchen learning how to make pizzas and making their own creations.
Peppina is an authentic Italian Canteen serving freshly made pizza, pasta and bread daily. Angelo cooks all of his food in front of customers, using the very best organic ingredients to give a rustic taste of Italy.
Angelo continued: “Peppina only opened this year and so far we have received amazing feedback from customers who have visited and come back several times.
“My focus is on always serving delicious and authentic food and I’m hoping events like these masterclasses will help introduce more people to the canteen.”
