Today I attempted to make pasta for the first time since returning from Puglia. I’ve acquired some Barley Flour to mix in with the OO Flour and I have my lovely The Awaiting Table apron.

I mixed the flours together and then added water….


Then some kneading.  I’m still not sure how long I need to to this for but I did it till it felt about right..the picture is it in its early stages. I then cleared away any left over Flour before finishing the kneading as I remember Silvestro making us do that

Then I rolled the dough out into a long finger, cut into portions and with a serrated knife produced these

They are drying out now. So just got to see how they taste!  But not too shabby for a first go..
