To officially launch the DSUK month of Alpine Lunches, and to give you inspiration for your own lunch, we have teamed up with pasta master - Pasta Pietro, who will take us all on a journey of making your own pasta through a live, engaging cooking class. We will be making Fettuccine Cacio & Pepe, a traditional Rome masterpiece!
To join a month long campaign of Alpine lunches, DSUK invites all supporters, members, snow sports enthusiasts and anyone who wants to take part, to host your own Alpine Lunch between 15th of November and 13th of December to help us raise the vital funds for DSUK and spread the #powerofpowder! Everyone who plans to host their own Alpine Lunch, will receive a £5 discount for the cooking class with Pasta Pietro.
Pietro was born and raised in Milan as an only child in a family that had people over for dinner every day. His passion for home cooking comes from both parents. His love for people comes from his father and while his mother made him a dreamer. Pietro has travelled from the Alps to the sea of Sicily, from Rome to Florence, from Verona to Venice speaking to grandmothers all across his country, learning cooking skills and techniques that have been passed down for generations by his ancestors: how to make authentic homemade pasta. “Every region, every city, every town and every street in Italy has its own food tradizione.” His mission became suddenly clear: sharing all these traditions, techniques, feelings and stories.
“Around a table we cook, eat and share our different stories. Each third strengthens the other”
Pietro is generously donating his time to DSUK to support disabled communities in accessing adaptive snow sports with ALL funds from the class going to DSUK. When you sign up for the class, you will receive a small shopping list of things you need (no specialist equipment necessary!) and the link to join the live class. Make sure your kitchen is ready, camera is working and the wine is in the fridge, to fully enjoy this exciting pasta masterclass!
