Soul Food Farm Workshop Probes Egg-Pasta Connection
Handmade pasta can be amazing. Or frightful, depending on whose hands are doing the making.

Pristine ingredients can make it extra-amazing in the right hands. That's the lesson promised for Soul Food Farm's second farm kitchen workshop, this one focused on pasta made from scratch with eggs ― naturally ― from the Vacaville cult pastured-poultry farm. The instructor: Chez Panisse-trained Samin Nosrat, who, since the closing of Berkeley's Eccolo (she was sous chef), has had her hands in plenty of pristine projects. Nosrat will demo tagliatelle and hand-torn stracetti, ravioli, tortellini, lasagna, and farfalle, a list that makes our hands ache just reading it. "The group will lunch on their pasta feast in the farm's olive grove," the event description goes, "and everyone will take home some pasta as well as a recipe guide."
If only everyone could take home Nosrat's talent and a flat of eggs. Details after the jump.
