In-Person Class: Homemade Heritage Grain Pasta with Giulio Caperchi

July 30 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What’s on the Menu:

  • Homemade Tagliatelle with Freshly Milled Farro Flour
  • Summer Bolognese
  • Radicchio, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad

    Calling all you pasta people: join us in-person at Milk Street for a hands-on cooking class with Giulio Caperchi, who has literally produced tons of fresh pasta in his life to date. This class takes the phrase “from scratch” to a whole new level. You’re not just kneading your own pasta dough and learning how to fold, roll, cut, cook and sauce it. You’ll also be grinding your own flour from heritage farro, meaning that your fresh pasta is really, truly fresh. When you mill your own grains, you’re able to appreciate their aroma, texture and flavor in a way that is simply impossible with grocery store flours. Giulio will teach you how, why and in what proportion to incorporate alternative grains into pasta so that you can confidently and successfully experiment for years to come. To balance the pasta’s big flavors—this is no bland, flavorless pasta waiting to be drowned in sauce!—we’ll make a simple batch of a summery Bolognese, which you’ll see is not a contradiction of terms.

    To enjoy the fruits of our labors, we’ll sit down to a family-style meal of perfectly cooked pasta, plus a classic Italian salad that combines radicchio and blue cheese with reduced balsamic vinegar and toasted walnuts. For dessert, look forward to fregolotta, a beloved Venician cookie, served over creamy gelato. Plus, every attendee of this class will go home with a box of Seven Hills’ dried pasta so that your pasta party doesn’t have to end when you leave Milk Street.

    About Giulio: Giulio and Carol Caperchi started Seven Hills Pasta Co. with the aim of bringing pasta manufacturing closer to our communities. We are an artisanal producer of bronze-extruded and slowly air dried pasta, our recipe consisting simply of flour and water. Our pasta factory and shop is located inside the Boston Public Market. Giulio was born and raised in Rome and developed his passion for cooking under the careful mentorship of his grandmother “Nonna Lina.” He went on to train as a cook in Rome and opened a pasta factory in the Boston area in 2016. Not only is Giulio passionate about the culinary side of food, but he is also invested in the sustainable growing of healthy produce. He started the Agro-Eco Project, a non profit based in Central MA, with the aim of growing pesticide-free fruit and vegetables for food pantries in Worcester County.
