Remember I was telling you about La-Triestina? The family live close to us and have a range of fantastic products. We were lucky enough to be able to get them come to us and teach Jon how to make pasta using the traditional method, no pasta machine needed - a late Birthday pressie lesson.

Here's Melody hand rolling pasta so thin you could see your hand through it but at the same time it wasn't about to break up either, after chilling pasta that she made quickly using fresh eggs she rolled this up and had it ready to cook in under ten minutes, very impressive to watch!

And what a meal they served, four courses and each course loaded with flavour.

And a Birthday present too, suitable for an induction hob!
