Tipico's Pop-Up Passata Making Class
Tipico's head chef demonstrates the art of making perfect passata, at these free pop-up classes
The passata making classes hosted by modern Italian restaurant Tipico have always proved popular because, let's face it, who wouldn't want to learn to whip up nonna-worthy tomato sauce whenever they please? But for those who haven't made it along just yet, this weekend's dishing up the next best thing. You can score some of that expert kitchen tutelage for nada, when the Windsor eatery returns to Prahran Market for a series of free pop-up passata making sessions.
On Sunday, February 27, across a run of free 30-minute classes, Head Chef Daniele Colombo will take to the market display kitchen to demonstrate how he makes primo passata using market-fresh produce. Sessions will kick off every half hour between 10.30am and 1pm, with anyone welcome to drop in and learn how to prepare, mince, season and cook those tomatoes to perfection.
To really get you in the zone, there'll be serves of fresh pasta available to buy and eat on the spot, and, for added inspiration, $10 bottles of Tipico passata to take home.
Tipico's free passata making demos will be held every half an hour between 10.30am–1pm. Registrations are encouraged — you can do so for free over here.
