HELP! Anyone know of good Pasta Making Courses in the Bay Area?

Hello Chowhounders...

I'm in need of looking for a fun course for my hubbie and I to take on fresh pasta making. Preferably in the South Bay, but I'm willing to drive to SF or a nice locale.

I've checked, The CCA, CIA, and Sur La Table to no avail. If anyone knows of where we might be able to find something, that would be great. Thanks!

    I think it'll be tough to find a course. making pasta is just dead simple. I can't even imagine what practical skills a course would teach?

          My husband and I took a great class with Rosetta a couple of years ago. Very hands on, fun and delicious! I've subsequently taken her classes on ricotta and pizza. There doesn't seem to be a pasta class coming up, but you can sign up for updates as she seems to do at least 1-2 every year.

            My ricotta class with her was wonderful...a great, enthusiastic teacher...I am on her mailing list and pre-ordered her new Calabrian cookbook on Amazon!

            Thanks Washington Family! I think that my hubbie will like the Rosetta class since he loves pepperoncini and they're going to do a homemade pasta too. Thanks everyone!
