Its about the "Whys" not the "Hows"
Understanding the why's and how's of a recipe are far more important than a list of amounts and ingredients. A recipe is merely a road map, passed from one cook to the next. What makes a recipe special is the personal touch that each cook imprints on it to make it their own. Having the knowledge of "why" you do something, instead of just reading a recipe card will give you the confidence and skills to carve your own path in the kitchen. At the end of the lesson, you will feel confident enough to take this recipe and put your own touches on it, truly making it your own.
Pumpkin Spiced Pasta Filling
You won’t be finding any cans of pumpkin puree in this kitchen. Instead learn the true value of pumpkins, and how to turn what could be a jack-o-lantern into a perfect pasta filling. There are a few restaurant worthy techniques that Chef Joe will share for best cutting, roasting, drying, and utilizing all of the pumpkin or squash. You can always buy pumpkin spice, but doesn’t it feel better, and taste better, making it yourself? Chef shares his recipe for a spice blend that is just as good in your coffee as your pasta.
Filled Pasta Dough
"Ravioli" traditionally in Italian refers to any shape of or envelope of filled pasta. In this lesson learn how to transform a basic egg-yolk pasta dough, using vegetable based powders, into a stunning colorful masterpiece. Chef Joe has become renowned for his technique of laminating and striping flavors, and colors into pasta sheets. He will share his best practices, tips, and methods - so you too can create these edible works of art wherever you are. T o note - for best results use vegetable powders to color the doughs. They are most easily ordered from Amazon, however if there are shipping delays, Whole Foods usually has at least (spinach, beet, and spirulina) powders in the health food and supplements isle. And as a last resort, a vegetable puree will work in a pinch - the dough recipe will just have to be adjusted slightly. Not everyone has the time (or energy) to knead dough the old-fashioned way, by hand - instead learn a few modern shortcuts and adjustments for how-to let your stand-mixer do all the work for you. This lesson is for all skill-levels, and will be using a KitchenAid stand mixer, the pasta sheeter attachment, and a basic cutting tool. (However, do not worry, Joe will go over good substitutions for all of the tools and equipment throughout the demonstration).
