After taking a class at Brooklyn Kitchen, Tyler and I have been experimenting with making pasta. Right now, we make the dough with the aid of a food processor but I hope, someday, we'll perfect the art of the flour wall, the well of egg, salt, and olive oil, the slow fork and turn, then the pummel of our palms against the sticky cold mixture.
It's still a time-consuming process, even with the aid of kitchen tools, but the outcome is well worth the time. To take things apart, to know the ingredients, the steps, it always makes me appreciate the food we take for granted so much more.
Is there something you were glad to take the time to make from scratch?
