After spending some time in different herb stations, we were then introduced to a Virgin Mojito cocktail class at Herb Kitchen. Were were told the differences between basil and mint, then we may add our desire amount of herbs, grapefruits, lime, and lemon into our jar with a little bit of floral honey at the bottom.
We were introduced with the different aroma and characteristic of different herbs, and different methods can be used to release the scent from these flavourful fresh herbs.
After all our ingredients have been filled, it’s time to add some sparkling water to have everything married together, if you wish to have an extra kick, it is recommended that some sea salt would create an interesting contrast when it comes to sweet drinks. I believe it is the same concept to enjoy chocolate with some sea salt!
Next, we were introduced with one of their new pot that doesn’t need much oil for any cooking method, and the circle mark at the bottom of the pan prevents the food from sticking to the pot. A pasta cooking demonstration was then performed for us showcasing how easy it can be when it comes to cooking!
Cooking has never been easily while only a minimal amount of oil / butter is needed, while cleaning takes no effect with just a few wipe using clean cloth / kitchen paper.
After we enjoyed some pasta, we get to make our own pasta from scratch! From mixing the flour and egg, kneading the dough, adding either turmeric or herbs to colour the dough, to cutting the pasta into our desired shape!
Add a fresh egg into the mixed flour in their mixing bowl with a plastic non-slippery bottom.
Knead the dough until the perfect elasticity and let it raise for a few minutes before we roll it out.
Roll out the dough and fold it 3 times to make it more chewy and you may fold more if you fancy chewier pasta.
You may choose either flat or thin pasta using their pasta machine.
The pasta is best to enjoy fresh and we were recommended to only boil it for 5 mins in boiling water for the perfect al dente pasta texture.
