Live-streaming Pasta-Making Classes From 84-Year-Old Grandma In Italy

I am a pasta lover. Personally, I consider it the food of the gods and I eat it at least three times a week, in all its glorious variations. Sadly, pasta has become somewhat of a commodity nowadays, since supermarket shelves are being cleared out due to panic-buying. The silver lining? Now is the perfect time to try and make your own, especially with all this extra time on our hands. Yes, you could follow a recipe book, but what if you could take a live-streaming video class from an 84-year-old Italian nonna, using a generations-old recipe? Well luckily for you, you can! Nonna Nerina (Nonna means grandma in Italian), who usually hosts pasta-cooking classes in her home is now running them online due to the coronavirus containment measures in Italy and it's wonderful. Forget your online fitness classes; this is much more fun! Here's how it works...

    Nonna Nerina runs the classes on weekends, and her granddaughter Chiara runs them during the week, so Nerina doesn't get overwhelmed. She is 84-years-old after all!

    A week before your class, you will be sent a shopping list of ingredients to buy and a list of all utensils you will need to cook with.

    Chiara's message to all the young people stuck in their house is "This is the perfect moment to learn and practice. And if you don’t have a grandma next to you... you can have mine for a couple of hours".
