Viviana Varese

Head chef of ViVa (Alice Ristorante), 1 Michelin Star (Milan, Italy)


Discover different types of pasta and enjoy this highly appreciated dish that is loved all around the world.

Pasta is found in every Italian home, and features in a distinct section of every Italian restaurant menu, from trattorias to gourmet restaurants.

For Italians, pasta signifies conviviality, family, and the desire to share and socialize. It is part of daily life; the majority of Italians consume pasta once or twice each day and a meal would be considered unsatisfying without it.

Pasta has spread throughout the world and has evidently combined with several cultures very different from the Italian one. It is interesting to see how when a simple ingredient is combined with local cultures from around the world, something unique and magical is created.

The world of pasta is immense. In this course you will find some of Chef Viviana Varese’s signature dishes, in which tradition is perfectly matched with her creativity in order to produce something unique.

Before you go

What you'll learn

How to make fresh and dried pasta, both of which are worthy of a Michelin star when made with the right technique.

The diverse world of pasta can be divided into two macro groups: fresh pasta and dried pasta. You will learn how to make both.

Fresh pasta can be split into two categories: with and without egg. According to the region, fresh pasta dough is made either with egg yolks or whole eggs. Every family has its own recipe handed down from generation to generation.

Fresh pasta made without eggs is composed of water and flour and is almost exclusively made in southern Italy.

Dried pasta is fresh pasta made without eggs, extruded into various shapes and then dehydrated in order to prolong its shelf life.

Colored pasta is also popular, and is very easy to make when you know how. It’s very important to choose the correct flour for the type of pasta. Using different types of flour will give completely different results.

Where is the pasta recipe?

I appreciate seeing how things are put together but there is no recipe for her egg pasta, no information on how to add the Colors to the pasta and no recipe for the pumpkin cream. Definitely lacking information!

The course might have been the best one I have done yet

The chef was amazing. I dont know if she can read the comments, but I, being a non italian speaker, chose to leave the course in italian because the way she presents and speaks about her cooking is unique. The subject was covered, the videos were incredibly interesting, I stayed up all night when I found this course so that I can finish it! Only bad thing, on 1 video the subtitles were wrong.
