Aurora Cooks! Homemade Pasta Demonstration 6:00 PM
August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join Patrick Higgins and Grace Mattingly at Aurora Cooks—the Inns of Aurora’s stunning new demonstration kitchen—for a relaxed and educational tasting experience. After a champagne toast, gather around the island or have a seat at a nearby table as though you’re at a chef’s home kitchen and enjoy all of the comforts afforded by an outstanding host.
With delectable tastes and take-away tips for applying expert techniques in your own home, this 90-minute demonstration is an engaging and intimate culinary experience. Enjoy a glass or two of wine, a craft beer, or a hand-blended cup of tea as you watch, learn, and taste the magic behind a truly well-made meal.
In this edition of Aurora Cooks, we’ll explore the technique of making homemade pasta.
Making pasta from scratch is one of the best ways to dramatically transform familiar dishes. The subtle textures and flavors of fresh, made-by-hand pasta can turn everyday meals into something spectacular. In this demonstration, Chef Higgins will introduce you to the basics of making pasta at home with a few basic ingredients, as well as some simple techniques for outstanding results.
