Well I'm a blog virgin and this is my first blog.
I got a pasta maker today for my birthday and here's a picture of my first pasta. Being a man, I didn't read much on what to do or how to make it because I was so excited and wanted to make it in a hurry so it turned out a bit rubbery, but hey, pratice makes perfect. I'll have to read up about it and have a look at a couple of videos or something.
It's looking good I find the best way (as taught by Recipease) is to take 200g of tipo 00 flour, make a well in the centre, break in 2 eggs, then break the yolks with a fork, and slowly incorporate the flour into the egg until it's like crumble. Then ditch the fork and mix with your hands to form a ball (don't worry about all those little bits left in the bottom of the bowl!). Knead until smooth, wrap in cling-film and put in the fridge for 10 - 30 mins, then roll out

Welcome to blogworld Jase and happy birthday...
Your pasta looks good, I normally find it almost melts in your mouth when you get it right...maybe it's time for me to invest in a pasta machine
Looks so professional! and well done on the blog! expect some more soon on your pasta making adventures!!
Are you using 00 flour and kneading until silky smooth?
bravoooo and happy birthday
Yeah I used 00 flour, didn't knead it for too long. I was too excited. My wife and kids thought it was grand.
My first lot was a bit rubbery too, next time I kneaded it more and rolled it thinner and it was better. Time to try again for perfection!
Well done Jase. Keep up the good work.
