On Saturday, November 17, 2018 Chef Luigi Diotaiuti invites you to experience an authentic piece of Italian culture: the Pasta Lab at Aperto Restaurant. Pasta-making is an integral part of Italy’s rich culinary patrimony and is something Chef Luigi, a culinary ambassador of Basilicata, Italy, is passionate about sharing with people all over the world.
During Aperto’s Pasta Lab event, Chef Luigi will talk about the history of pasta, the culture that surrounds this iconic food and show guests how to mix and knead pasta dough by hand. You will also learn how to shape, cut and fill many different types of pasta, which they can sample after Chef Luigi’s presentation.
$35pp includes the demonstration, pasta tasting and a variety of light bites to be served during a brief presentation about Basilicata: A Way Of Living, Chef Luigi’s non-profit organization that works to maintain the local traditions of that region in Italy while also creating jobs and promoting tourism.
As part of his ongoing relationship with the community kitchen, Chef Luigi will be conducting another Pasta Lab at DC Central Kitchen facilities specifically for students in their Culinary Job Training Program.
The Pasta Lab at Aperto will run from 12:00pm – 3:00pm. Space is limited; tickets can be purchased by e-mailing the restaurant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
