Talent: Oskar Rossi and Federica Andrisani, Fico | Venue: Riverside Kitchen | Performance Type: hands-on workshop | Price: $110 | Not suitable for GF
This hands-on workshop includes tastings and pasta to take home.
What is this alchemy that turns such simple ingredients (flour and eggs) into the silky wonder that is freshly made pasta? Discover for yourself in this intimate, hands-on class with Oskar Rossi and Federika Andrisani of Fico, recently named by The Australian as one of Australia’s Hot 50 restaurants. They’ll take you through the process of pasta-making and you’ll leave with two types of fresh pasta to cook at home as well as a jar of Fico’s housemade sugo.
Neapolitan Federica and Tasmanian Oskar met while working in Italy’s Veneto region four years ago. They returned to Hobart, Oskar’s hometown, and made a name for themselves with successful modern Italian pop-ups before opening Fico. Pasta at the restaurant is handmade and their philosophy dovetails perfectly with that of Federica’s hometown: “[in Naples] every day is a good day to stay together, with family or friends and to eat good food and drink good wine.”
