Mindful cooking: colorful pasta making class

January 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0


The experience of mindful cooking: Cooking with an open heart and connecting with our senses.

With this practice I invite you to experience mindfulness in the kitchen — a feeling of being in your body and fully inhabiting your senses: We will begin the practice inviting awareness to the present moment with mindful breathing and setting an intention, then proceed to make pasta from scratch by using just water, flour, and your hands.

This experience is uniquely you: It invites you to enter and dwell in the mental and physical sensations.

As we focus on the act of kneading the dough and shaping the pasta with our hands, we dissolve the boundaries created by our thoughts and allow ourselves to experience the sensations of the present moment.

We will provide all the ingredients to make the pasta (all purpose flour, semolina flour, or gluten-free flour upon request, water), natural coloring powders, and some basic condiments and plant based sauce. Please feel free to bring your own sauce, cheese, or anything you like.

Weather permitting, we will step outside to enjoy our pasta in the garden!

What to bring:

A food container for extra dough or pasta to take home with you.

If you have any questions, or would like to request gluten-free flour for the event, please feel free to contact us at Info@naturesatelier.com
