Saturday Night Pasta
This is not a dramatic tale of overcoming incredible adversity. No loves have been lost, no hearts broken. This is a rather ordinary tale of finding myself and forming a ritual of self-care that I like to call Saturday Night Pasta. Saturday Night Pasta is therapy for the modern-day food lover, teaching self-care through the humble act of making pasta. Like the practice of meditation, making pasta by hand is a way of achieving self-discovery and mindfulness ... with delicious results. Including stories, mantras, step-by-step guides to making different pasta shapes and basic doughs, trouble-shooting tips and 40 utterly mouthwatering recipes (with dried pasta substitutes for the time poor), this is a cookbook to inspire and empower.
