Last month I won a pretty amazing food blogger competition which was run by Foodies100 and Giovanni Rana. This was my entry. I was pretty astonished and quite proud to have been chosen as the winner and thrilled with the prize of a Pasta Masterclass with Giovanni Rana and Antonella Rana as well as a goodies bag and supermarket voucher.
Lucky me hey?
So a few weeks ago I travelled to the Giovanni Rana restaurant in London and had a lot of fun learning some new pasta skills, meeting some really interesting people and eating a rather enormous amount of excellent food. All in all a pretty amazing day.
First up we had some snacks and a drink while chatting about what the plan was for the day. It a tough life …
Next we moved onto the pasta Masterclass where we met the very lovely Giovanni and Antonella. We learned to make a basic pasta dough before moving to experiment with making fillings and filled pasta. I picked up loads of tips and I can’t wait to try them out at home.
To finish up we had a delicious three course meal with an incredible red wine.
We started with a selection of Italian cured meats and cheeses with gnocco fritto bread and chutney. It was a really impressive starter.
I then moved onto Beef and Pork Cappelletti with butter and sage with Parma ham crostino.
To end a delectable meal we had a selection of home made sweet ravioli & the chefs dessert selection.
A quick thank you to Giovanni Rana, Wildcard PR and Foodies100 for a fabulous prize and a wonderful day.
