Last weekend my boyfriend and I had an usual Saturday night !
We went to the cookery school of Jamie Oliver based in Notting Hill: Recipease. We wanted to improve our cooking skills and especially our knowledge of how to make filled pasta.

While we were waiting for the class to start we were offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco.
We were all standing around a massive bar in the middle of the restaurant. The class started with 10 minutes of marketing campaigns for Jamie Oliver restaurants, shops and products ! Needless to say this wasn’t really my cup of tea as I was here to spend a good time with my boyfriend, learn new skills and cook. I was not expecting to listen to a Jamie Oliver's advertisement otherwise I would have stayed in, in from of my TV.
After the long ten minutes of adverts, the class finally properly began and the chef explained how to make filled pasta.

The first step was to make the pasta dough, then knead it and let it rest. While our dough was resting, we prepared our filling. The filling was pretty simple and cheap (frozen spinach and ricotta).
The second step was to roll the dough by using a pasta machine.
The third step was to shape and cut our pasta dough, filled and cook them.
At the same time we were preparing our sauce which was a butter and sage.

What I really liked about this class was its concept. The chef showed us step by step the process and then we did the same thing between each step for our own pasta. What I didn’t like was the price, I thought the class was a bit pricey considering we cooked with very cheap and frozen ingredients. Also to make her plate of pasta the chef use the same amount of ingredients which was given to share between two people, and I think they could have be a bit more generous with their portions. It was surely the most expensive spinach and ricotta pasta plate I ever ate : £50, but it was homemade.

Overall we are glad we did this class as we will be able to prepare our own filled pasta at home with our new pasta machine. However we will probably not go back again to Recipease as it was a bit overpriced for what it was.
