Cooking up a tart’s spaghetti online cookery class

Hi everyone! Join me and cook along as I cook one of Italy’s most loved pasta dishes, spaghetti alla puttanesca or tart’s spaghetti.

As we cook, we’ll be taking a journey through the Spanish Quarter in Naples, delving back into the history of spaghetti and taking a general look at what pasta means to those who eat it. It’s a fascinating tale of kings, wheat, foreign invaders – and there’s a car wash in Sicily too.

Set your table beforehand. Any checked tablecloth reminiscent of an Italian trattoria will do, or even just your favourite tablecloth. Don’t forget the bread – even when eating pasta, Italians still love their bread – just lay it on the table to break off.

This is one of my favourite go-to dishes, especially when I’m in a hurry and need to get something on the table quick. Plus I have the luxury of knowing that my kids will always ALWAYS eat pasta.

What others say…

“As a food obsessive (read: I’m greedy) I really enjoyed Rachael’s cookery session. As well as being knowledgable about Italian food, she encourages participants to get a feel for the ingredients and cook in a way that feels natural rather than prescriptive or too scientific. The class really sparked my creativity as a chef!” – Lizzie Cernik
