Making fresh pasta from scratch

It was at Boordy Vineyards new winery opening that editor of Julekha Dash said she would like to learn how to make fresh pasta. Diane Macklin known as Baltimore’s lifestyle reporter on television, radio and print media as Downtown Diane said that she would like to learn as well. It had been awhile since I made fresh pasta but told the ladies I would teach them.  That was three weeks ago and a date was set for the class.

I sorted through a number of my Italian cookbooks for a simple recipe for fresh pasta; Lidia Bastianich, Marcella Hazan, Mario Batali, Guiliano Bugialli, Victor Hazan and others.  Some were too involved, too long but in the end the choice was Marcella Hazan, who is to Italian food what Julia Child was to French Food. Unfortunately, Marcella Hazan  passed away this week at 89 years of age.  So her recipe seemed apropos for teaching my friends, a homage.
