21 Acres: Handmade Straw & Hay Pasta with Fresh Spring Peas, Prosciutto, & Cream Sauce
Let's use those fresh spring peas and tender spinach to make a fabulous pasta! Chef Frankie, former owner of Frankie’s Pizza & Pasta in Redmond, will teach you how to make two types of fresh pasta... egg and spinach fettuccines, which are married together in a delicious, and beautiful pasta entrée called Straw & Hay. Also learn how to make a fabulous cream sauce with organic fresh cream from local dairies such as Golden Glen, Fresh Breeze, and Pure Eire. To accompany this beautiful yellow and green pasta dish we’ll make a fresh seasonal salad with homemade vinaigrette, honey roasted hazelnuts, local organic gorgonzola cheese, and seasonal fruit. Pasta can optionally be made vegetarian, but not dairy free. Salad is vegetarian and optionally dairy free. Instructor: Frankie Curtis, former owner of Frankie’s Pizza & Pasta Frankie is a self-trained chef, restaurateur, cook book author, cooking class teacher, food blogger, food and wine photographer, wine writer, and Italy travel guide.

During those years Frankie authored and self-published a cook book Frankie at Home in the Kitchen. This allowed him to marry his love of food with his passion for food photography. With the restaurant now closed due to redevelopment, Frankie has turned his attention to teaching cooking classes, doing food and wine photography, and publishing his food blog.
