Spaghetti and sauce: a workshop for kids

We’ll be cooking spaghetti, making our very own fresh tomato sauce, busting spaghetti myths, exploring a bit of spaghetti history and learning a bit of Italian along the way. The emphasis is on both cooking and culture, so children will cook their own spaghetti and tomato sauce but also learn about the history of spaghetti and what it means to the people who eat it. I’ll encourage children to ask questions and get curious about Italian food in general. I’ll also teach them a few Italian words and phrases along the way. The aim is that children have fun with food and go away wanting to learn more, try out more recipes, and generally gain confidence in the kitchen. Allora bambini, ci facciamo due spaghi? (So kids, shall we make some spaghetti then?)

Date and time: Saturday 27 March, 11 am UK time (class duration about 60-90 mins)

Cost: 12 euro per household

What others say:

“What a great way to spend a couple of hours, cooking the Italian way with my 9 year old son. Rachael was friendly, informative and fun plus the resulting spaghetti and sauce was delicious and was wolfed down by the whole family! Would highly recommend you spend some time cooking and chatting with Rachael.” Clare & Douglas

“It was really welcoming which made it fun to participate it. I enjoyed learning about new things and the tomato sauce was the best I’ve tasted.” Isobel, aged 11

“I really felt like I had learned a lot by the end of the session in terms of Italian food culture. Rachael was extremely engaging and the session flew by. The result was delicious too!” Emma, Isobel’s mum
