Making Pasta with Joel...

I made pasta with Joel at youth club this week. Not pour the packet stuff into the boiling water thing. This was the real thing.

We mixed Flour (tipo 00), eggs together. We kneaded it together. We rolled it out together. We rolled it through the pasta machine together. We cut it into the fattest tagliatelle I’ve ever seen together. We boiled it together. We mixed in the roughest home-made tomato sauce together. We shared it with the rest of the club together. We took the abuse together!!

Joel is just eighteen. He has spent his life moving from children’s home to children’s home. Tomorrow he moves into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. I think the together thing might have been significant.

"what we cooking next week…?"
