Lots of little towns and towns in Italy have a society of Nonnas (Italian for Grandmother) who are the matriarchs of the town, liable for passing down their cooking understanding to all the young people, so that they will eventually be able to make all pasta as well as the Nonnas … Simon was intent on supplying everyone 100g (his treatment, i.e. a rough handful) of 00 flour, an egg and a pinch of salt then knead it together with your fingers, whereas Nonna Pina– although she can not speak a word of English, dealt with to interact that there was NO WAY we were making it Simon’s technique, HER technique was 200g of flour, 2 eggs and NO salt, and whatever was weighed to the last gram on actually exact scales. We needed pail loads of tortellini for the broth, and this is made by rolling out the pasta dough so really carefully that you can see the table through it– a stylish art kind in itself, attempted by all, and Linda was most definitely a trainee Nonna, everyone else might not get the slap and twist movement needed to stop the dough from sticking to the pin/table.
