Looking for that perfect romantic experience this Valentine’s Day? Join Steve from Piccolo Farm Organics and his wife Lisa in the Nourish Kitchen for an authentic (and romantic!) pasta making experience. Enjoy a glass of wine, an intimate atmosphere and an Italian tradition that stretches generations.

Take a deep dive into the chemistry, physics and art of making fresh pasta, old-world style with expert pasta maker and organic farmer Steve D’Alimonte and his partner in life and business, Lisa.

Starting by talking through the basics of types of fresh pasta and the best ingredients for the tastiest results, participants will then create their own fresh pasta from scratch using the same methods Nonna used. After mixing, rolling and cutting, participants will try their hands at cooking and then marrying noodles with different sauces. The group will have the opportunity to practice and experiment together with the guidance and encouragement of Steve and Lisa.

After preparing their pasta, participants will sit down to enjoy the fruits of their labour together, and have all the skills they need to recreate this experience for family and friends at home!

Piccolo Farm Organics (PFO) is owned and operated by Steve D’Alimonte & Lisa Lopez in the backyard of their property in Guelph — the traditional land of the Mississauga, Attiwonderonk, Anishinabe and Haudenosaunee Peoples. Their mission is to grow healthy and flavourful Italian varieties of vegetables, or vegetables commonly used in Italian cuisine, using no-till and regenerative farming methods and provide them directly from farm(er) to customer. They sell their produce and prepared sauces and pasta at various farmers’ markets and to restaurants in the region.
