What We’ll Do

Join your private chef, the Pasta Hostess herself, Linda Nardilli Morrin as she offers you a private group cooking class for you and your closest friends, family or coworkers. Using fresh, local ingredients, Linda will help you turn basic ingredients into an authentically delicious meal for you to enjoy!

Your choices of classes include:

Intro To Pasta Making:
Basic pasta making with helpful hints along the way. Includes a couple of appetizers, a meal of home made pasta and sugo (Nonna’s recipe for sauce), followed by strawberry sorbet. Take home some pasta and sauce, and a folder with all of the recipes used.

Filled & Flavorful Pasta:
Enjoy an appetizer of ‘Italian Flags’. Create colourful pasta and make pasta filled with a variety of ingredients including, ricotta, spinach, roasted red peppers & butternut squash. Share a Cannelloni meal, and lemon custard topped with berries. Keep a collection of all the recipes.

Vegetarian Italiana:
Learn to make crostata al formaggio e pomodoro (cheese/tomato tart) and gnudi alle bietole (potato-less gnocchi). Share a meal together, which features barley risotto, stuffed peppers and tomatoes & Italian bean salad. Finish it all off with espresso custard and almond-anise seed biscotti.

Meet your host, Linda Nardilli Morrin

Ciao! I'm Linda Nardilli Morrin, a second generation Canadian of Italian immigrants. Born and raised in Toronto, I relocated to the North Bay area over 30 years ago. Preparing and eating Italian food is second nature to me (probably genetic!). I was blessed to learn the love of cooking in the Italian style from my nonnas (Italian for grandmothers) and my own mother. When I retired early, I made the decision to share my passion of Italian cooking with others. And that's when the idea for my food business Pasta Hostess was created. Continuing the tradition of tasting the love made in the food. I am meticulous about food safety and I have my Food Handler Certification and follow COVID safety food protocols.
