Meet Silvana.



Meet Silvana, a fourth-generation pasta maker from Naples, Italy, dedicated to preserving the traditional art of handmade pasta. Silvana's passion is to teach others the authentic techniques passed down through her family, ensuring that rare pasta shapes don't fade into obscurity.

Silvana's expertise was showcased on BBC2's Inside the Factory in July 2017, where she shared her knowledge as a pasta expert. However, her real joy comes from teaching enthusiasts in her own kitchen.

In her kitchen, participants experience true Italian hospitality as they learn the ins and outs of pasta making. Silvana guides them through the process, emphasising the importance of using the best seasonal ingredients available. From shaping trofie to folding orecchiette, every step is a hands-on lesson in tradition and craftsmanship.

For Silvana, pasta-making is more than just a skill - it's a way of connecting with her heritage and sharing the authentic Italian experience with others. Join her in the kitchen for a practical and enriching journey through the world of pasta!
