I knew this task of making pasta was not something I should attempt on my own. After much research I found the Culinary Institute of Bologna or CIBO, it was here that I decided to enrolled in my first pasta making class.
Finding the right class for the right price was important to me, I wanted to be able to take this cooking experience with me where ever I go but not go broke in the process. Some schools run up to 500 euro a day. CIBO offers many classes that are all day, half day and an hour long to fit your price range. I chose an hour class for 60 euros focused on pasta making.
We wrapped our night up with eating all of the amazing dishes we had prepared. CIBO made sure we had enough wine to last the rest of the night too.
