Charity Event to Raise Funds for Victims of the Italian Earthquake | Cin Cin

On 24 August, I celebrated my 39th birthday with my family over pizza in Hove. That same day, an earthquake of 6.2 magnitude slammed the medieval town of Amatrice in central Italy. So far almost 300 people have been killed by this natural disaster and sections of that region have been flattened.

Amatrice is, or was, a quintessential Italian town or ‘paese’ – the stone church on the hill, the cobbled streets polished by hundreds of years of residents shuffling along on their afternoon walk or ‘passegiata’, the grandmothers or ‘nonne’ sitting outside their homes to catch the latest gossip. Much of this is gone and reduced to rubble.

But Amatrice is also the birthplace of a classic Italian dish – Spaghetti All’Amatriciana – so I decided to celebrate that fantastic heritage by putting on a pasta Masterclass here in Brighton on Wednesday 14th September to raise funds for the victims of this disaster with all proceeds going to the Italian Red Cross who have worked tirelessly to help survivors since the quake hit.

At Cin Cin, we’ve run pasta Masterclasses with Birra Moretti for the last two years, teaching people across the UK how to make a pasta dish from scratch. We’ve had great feedback on how easy and enjoyable it is to make handmade pasta, and we guarantee you will successfully make your dish!

On the night, we’ll have a glass of Prosecco ready for you on arrival. Then our chef will run through the basics of making pasta dough, show you how to roll and cut your own handmade spaghetti using a ‘chitarra’, plus you’ll learn how to make the sauce and best of all, you’ll get to enjoy the dish you’ve made with a Birra Moretti or glass of Italian wine, all for £25 per person, while raising money for this very worthwhile cause! And we’ll have a few very Italian prizes to raffle off to help boost what we raise on the night.

All tickets now on sale via Tabl.
