Penninghame introduces a Pasta Class with local Chef, Douglas Lisi

Penninghame is delighted to announce that we are offering a fresh pasta class in the Cooking School in conjunction with Douglas Lisi.

Douglas is a local “celebrity” chef who owns the Italian restaurant, L’Aperitif, in Stranraer with his family.  Douglas spends much of his time doing charity cooking demonstrations and also works with Dumfries & Galloway Council helping teach youngsters how to cook.

Our initial class is on Wednesday 13th June  when Douglas will show how to make the perfect fresh pasta. He will take the class through the process of making the pasta dough, then to the resting, rolling and cutting the dough in preparation to cook.  The class will make their own long pasta such as tagliatelle, and also have a go at making and stuffing ravioli.

To complement the pasta Douglas will teach how to make some simple, fresh, healthy but delicious pasta sauces.

Once all the cooking is over the class can retire to the dining room and enjoy the fruits of their labour with a glass  of Italian wine!

Class starts at 6.30pm finishes around 9.30-10pm and costs £35 per person.

Wednesday 13th June  (more dates to follow)
