Passata making


10.30 am - 1 pm


Demonstration Kitchen



Tipico’s passata making experience returns to the Prahran Market for one day only, on Saturday 27 February.

Luis Viota (AKA Gigi), and Tipico Head Chef Daniele Colombo, will host a series of FREE, 30-minute masterclasses on the art of making passata. Sessions will be held in the Harvest Hall demonstration kitchen, between 10:30 am – 1:00 pm, giving you the chance to learn how to prepare, mince, season, and cook tomatoes in a way that would make any Italian Nonna proud, using fresh, Prahran Market ingredients.

“While our Masterclasses have taken a new form on Zoom the past year, we are excited to bring our Passata Masterclass back to Prahran Market. We will teach you how to make passata like a real Italian nonna!” says Andrea Da Como, Co-owner of Tipico.

And there will be bowls of freshly made pasta available to purchase and eat on the spot, and bottles of freshly-made Italian passata to take home for $10 each.

*Please note, Tipico’s original sessions scheduled for February 20 have been cancelled, due to the last-minute nature of the Vic Premier’s Stage 4 lockdown announcement on Wednesday 17 Feb.
