Looking to impress your guests at your next dinner party? Learn the art of making your own cheese and pasta through a series of exciting classes hosted by That's Amore Cheese at its demonstration kitchen in Thomastown. 

On March 26 at 10am, Gianna Donnini of Donnini's in Carlton will guide participants through the basics of making fresh pasta. Over the course of three and a half hours, you'll learn how to make and knead the pasta dough, how to fill and shape pasta and how to work a domestic pasta machine. The workshop also includes cheese tasting, drinks, a That's Amore apron and recipes, and you'll walk away knowing how to make tagliatelle, spinach and ricotta tortelloni and pumpkin ravioli. 

On April 9 at 10am, guests can take part in a four-hour interactive workshop that will teach them how to make Italian-style cheese from milk to the finished product. Convert a few litres of milk into Primo Sale, also known as the mother of all cheeses, and also into mozzarella and ricotta. Afterwards, you'll get to enjoy a delicious lunch and chat about what you've learned, and you'll take home some cheese. 

The pasta-making class is $125 per person, and the cheese-making class is $200 per person. To sign up for these classes, head to the That's Amore Cheese website
