Pasta! Pasta! Workshop & Dinner

After hugely successful workshops throughout 2022 and 2023, Pasta! Pasta! is back in a new format, especially for Mental Health Awareness Week. This after-work, end-of-the-day session will help you unwind whilst getting creative with friends and work colleagues. Nourishment for the mind and belly!

This unique experience is much more than a pasta-making workshop. Led by Matt O'Callaghan, the Founder and Chef of Mangia! Mangia!, participants will gain new skills, eat delicious food and meet like-minded food lovers!

This hands-on pasta-making class starts with the basics to provide guests with essential pasta-making skills. Through instruction and anecdotes, attendees will become familiar with semola-based pasta such as orecchiette and cavatelli.

Once the learning is over, the cooking and eating will begin as participants cook their pasta and eat dinner together in Gulp’s beautiful dining room. We can provide selected wines to make a special occasion of it!

About Mangia! Mangia!

Mangia! Mangia! was founded by Matt O’Callaghan, a cook, grower, writer and teacher of food specialising in traditional Italian and British recipes.
