Learning the Traditions: Pasta
This was second in a series of workshops designed to allow for our younger members to learn the details of some of the fine traditions that make Italian heritage so rich. This workshop focused on making pasta.
hosted us at his restaurant, Mona Lisa. After some antipasti we presented a $2,000 scholarship cheque to one of our two scholarshp winners, Rosie Baksina
After a brief meeting, Joe and his mother showed us the "how to" of making pasta by hand. Then one of Joe's staff showed us the modern way, with a large commercial machine. A guest sommelier discussed the special wine we had on hand. We also met a beautiful young lady who was wearing a traditional regional costume.
What followed was an amazing meal including linguine fato al mano - aglio e olio, then an osso bucco that had everyone raving.
Thank you to Joe Grande, his mother and his staff for a beautiful evening that was both fun and entertaining. Thanks also to David Bueti
and Joe Putaro
