  1. Lauren, what a beautiful video. I am second generation italian and have been making pasta with the food processor. It was not really very satisfying to use a machine. I always wanted to know how to do this and it was so mesmorizing to watch. My Gramma, may she rest in peace, is no longer with us, so this was very comforting to watch. I thank Emma and you both.

  2. Hi Ginger. This is exactly why I wanted to make this video–to show those that want to be touched by this process but can’t find anyone to show them. Making pasta this way (completely hand-driven)is SO satisfying–I will tell you, though, that it takes a bit of practice to get the motion down (with the rolling pin, in this particular way) but it’s well worth the effort. If you watch the video a couple of times, then try–you should be fine and I’m only an email away (and there’s also a phone number on the site, if you’re “stuck”… It also can be helpful if you do what I did–if you ask someone to stretch their bare arm out, on a table and you use your hands to try to simulate the motion of pressing down, while sliding each hand out to the opposite end of the pin. Remember, you’re not really rolling the dough–your stretching the dough. Let me know how you do! I’m here.

  3. […] its way to succulence on the stove–Yes, I make stock, fresh breads, duck confit, stews and homemade pasta–even during the dog-days of summer! Trust me, this is not to be a brat–although I do! […]

  4. My husband and I watched you make pumpernickel bread with Julia Child’s. You were delightful to watch and the bread looked scrumptious! We are making it tomorrow. Thanks for the instructions on your website. Joy

  5. Thank you so much for this demonstration! I was looking to make fresh pasta without having to invest in a pasta machine. Cheers, Rowena
