Sorry guys if I didn’t write for many days, but I was in a really secluted, quite and “lost” place. I spent my time around the Appenino Modenese, near Sestola.
Over there, between the woods, the iced rivers, the snow and the mountains, we are lucky enough to have got (and a bit wild) stone-house. It’s in a very small village…10 people in total…and…One of these people is…“ta-daààààà”: the only, the great, the one and wonderful chef: Adriana.
She tought me to prepare an old and traditional dish of this land, the incomparable: TORTELLINI Emiliani!
That’s why you can also watch a video about making Tortellini, that I made during granny Adriana’s lesson. You can understand how to close them in an appropriate way and, above all, how keeping them in your hand.
You know I often meet families with children, even very little ones.
In fact I suggest the preparation of this dish to those who are a bit experts…not just beginners. And so Tortellini are having a big success with “couple” cooking classes.
One of the most beautiful aspects of my job is keeping in touch with my “students” for sharing pictures and recipes about our courses. That’s why I can assure you that many “students” are now very skilled and they prepare exquisite Tortellini for the beloved half during many special events.
You need to be patient and to have time (it takes around 3 hours).
