PASTA PARTY

Hello edgeryders!

I had a dream...
and the dream was to create a massive "pasta therapy" in Matera. A big event in which everybody makes pasta (women, men and children) and then we eat all together.

Why create such en event during the Unmonastery festival?

Social eating helps people interacting and creating bonds. It's something intimate and go beyond any language limit.Cooking together makes the experience even richer and offers the opportunity to share with others.

It's a perfect meeting day for materani and edgeryders! 

Why cooking pasta?

Hard wheat is one of the typical product of southern Italy and therefore of Basicalata. 
Making pasta is a real creative and creating process made by very simple and poor ingredients, water and flour and nevertheless it is delicious.
Making pasta doesn't necessarily demand particular abilities, but it surely requires time and to be motivated. It can be done by young or seniors and middle-age people. It is an activity that takes place around a table and thus stimulates conversation and "gossip".

How does it work? 

A community of people interested in participating decides the recipe that will be realized, for instance typical dishes from Matera, like "lagane con i ceci", or "tagliatelle con cicerchie", or typical pasta shapes like orecchiette, cavatelli,cazzatelli or maccheronatelli.

Resources

Like any Italian city Matera hosts all along the year local festivals (sagre) with street food around one seasonal product or dish, for instance wine at the beginning of October. Those festivals are organised by local associations that provide equipment : tables, benches, cookers and cooking stuff, and a great number of volunteers.
The aims of these associations is usually to animate the local community and they will be probably interested in doing the same in the occasion of the unmonastery festival.
Ingredients like flour and vegetable can be furnished by local enterprises that will have visibility in exchange of a very low investment.
All the necessary equipment to make pasta ( a wood working plan, rolling pins and knives if needed) can be found in every Italian house and will be furnish by the community of people themselves.

What is needed
Volunteers to manage logistics, to animate and coordinate the stuff of people doing pasta, cooking, serving at table, washing dishes.

Looking forward to...

Great reading you, Valentina!

What a wonderful idea, couldn't think of something funnier and more educational, all at the same time :) I volunteer for dish washing and helping serve people.

Do you think we should do this at the conference location in the unMonastery or should we find a place that's better equipped with the furniture you mention its usually used in festivals?

One more thing: we are currently 60 people who are coming or will be in Matera for the event, and still counting! How many is too many to feed ? :D

Yummy!

Ilaria's picture

Valentina, this is a GREAT idea... that requires organization although it seems quite simple, mostly because of the large number of people. On the mt2019 community, Ida proposed a really cool idea: in the last comments, Anna Selvaggi, writes about her project on women and food. She is the president of the Donne Europee association, and is really into food and helping out with this kind of initiatives. So she is definetely a resource. The thing that I am asking myself is more about the place, the kitchen and the material. Because for the rest it's only flour 'n' good vibes :-) Also, could this be the party we were thinking of on the last day? 

Noemi, we really have to start organizing the matchmaking, here :-) I'm back on track, so let's go for it.

Don't think about the numbers!

Alberto's picture

GREAT idea, [valentinabrogna]. I'll help too, if I can.

One bit of advice: don't think too much about the numbers now. I assume some of the people who are registered now will not show up; on the other and, many more will register in the future. Also, the unMonastery is not that big, and at some point we might even be forced to have a limit on the number of unPilgrims.

So, for now let's focus on engineering this. Start with a small-ish number, like 25 or 30: what is needed to make the pasta party for that many people? Then maybe we can scale the whole thing, adding "units" that will serve 25-30 people each.

WHAT WE HAVE - what we do

valentinabrogna's picture

I think we have to start making plan according to the resources available. How big is the place we have? Could it be outside ? If so, how can we get in contact with the local "Pro Loco" to know if they can eventually provide the whole equipement?

If the person who will make hand made pasta is not an experienced one, (that is highly desirable) he can provide two pasta dishes at maximum. But first of all my idea was that a great number of people makes psta together, materani and hedgeryders, women, men and children.

I think we should talk about it. At what time is the friday meeting? I wil be available starting from 19.45

Regardind Ida's idea, I think we can put the two together and realise one unique final event.

What about lucan cooks?

RitaO's picture

Hy everybody, I find it all really amazing! I was thinking that, maybe, we could ask Lucan cooks Association help to make pasta: it's not only because they are professionals (and surely faster than I can be in making pasta ;-)) but it could be a good way to make more people involved in LOTE.

In addition, I can try to ask to the President of Coldirettii to help us: great visibility for them, high quality products for us.

One last thought about flour: don't you think it would be nicer if everyone brings a little? Metaphorically pasta would became a common result starting from different preconditions just like the aim of LOTE experience.

Of course I'll make pasta with you, like granny taught me! Ciao

[Rita Orlando], thank you for this generous offer! Go right ahead, talk to the people you have in mind, see if anyone is interested in helping out. Maybe [valentinabrogna], yourself and maybe [Ida Leone] could take leadership for this? We'll help as best we can. There is supposed to be a ktichen at the unMonastery, but probably not large enough for what you have in mind... [andrea.paoletti] and [antonioelettrico] know more about this.

Lucan Cooks + AIDE Associazione Indipendente delle Donne + IDA

valentinabrogna's picture

The aim is to involve the greatest number of people and especially materani community.

Concerning the kitchen it doesn't need to be very big. Pasta is something you make around a table, so even outside the kitchen. We need a lot of tables and space (according to the number of participants). 

I think it would be important to have people who are not professional and have never made pasta. It could become an opportunity for learning, to stimulate people to approach manual activities ( disregarding sex or age) and most of all to have an active attitude, instead of a passive one. Basically this is why I teach people to make pasta in my life. 

I also understand that we have "space" and equipment limits, so it coul also turn out to be a great dinner with good food, where only 15 people make past for 100.

To organise the pasta party I am available on September. When can we talk about it and how we're gonna proceed? I miss lot of info that only local people can give me.

I suggest we set up a google hangout announced in a timely fashion so everyone involved can join, at a date of your preference Valentina. What do you think? 

First, when in September and what time? Let us know when you have this information. We can set an event page here on Edgeryders and  invite everyone contributing to this thread, as well as other Materani who are in touch through email and just waiting for an opportunity, since English speaking communities are not their forte. The only thing to do is make sure [andrea.paoletti] or someone who knows the space is joining the hangout to bring us down to earth when we'll want to take over the entire space :) 

Cc this should be of specific interest to [pacheca]. Rita you're volunteering for venue, no? This is an opportunity to take a leading role in organising Lote, plus it's easier for you since my Italian is not so great. Of course I'll be in close touch with people's contacts so you can reach everyone. What do you think?

OK, count me in!

       Hello Yummy Livingroom! :- P

       This is a great oportunity, Yes! ;- )
     
  Well, let's see:

  • I have never organized, done or managed any kind of event,
     but I'm willing to do it, so you now I'm level 1 amateur! ;- )
     
  •  "Io no parlo Italiano, péro vorrei imparare! " it is really the only phrase I can verbally articulate,
     and this is exactly because I do want to learn! (actually I never had any Italian classes,
     but curiously had a few classes of Romanian, [Noemi]! ;- ) )

     If I can organize it in english - grouping with : [valentinabrogna] from September, right?  
     and someone who deals with the italian when crucial... + [Rita Orlando] ?
     Anyway, I will certainly make a real effort to learn italian, I love learning languages!
     

_____

         note. As [valentinabrognasaid there is a lot of local info needed, which sugests counting on someone from Matera,
         for linking all the organization from within, again [Rita Orlando] are you a possibility? 
             

_____

           Ok, stepping on the process might be:  

  1. Setting an Event page on Edgeryders, and inviting every one contributing for this thread:

        Topics for discussion already launched:
    *   Which day do you prefer. Is it the last day, as proposed by [Noemi] a OK day? 
    *  Every one brings flour, as proposed by [Rita Orlando].
        Maybe, as flour is sold in 1Kg packages,
    people can join in little groups. 
        (3 person per kilo? or 4? - 250 gr per person, is it enough?
     )

    *  Joining professional ones (or experienced) with
    the first doers for the execution, as proposed by [valentinabrogna].
        
    Probably experienced people could "raise their hands" for awareness of how many are there? allowing us to recognize the existent proportion to unexperienced ones.
        I imagine that the idea, 
    [valentinabrogna], is grouping for learning and doing on site, right? ( Something like, 1doerPRO to 6 doersAM ? )
        
      *   Do you think it is a good idea including the local younger community members, like teens, to also participate in the organization,
          if any is interested? (for instance, to animate people doing pasta, as refered by [
    valentinabrogna] before.)
          Should we launch a local invitation? Does anyone have any ideia on where to find them, 
    [Ilaria]? :- )  
           (I don´t know, do you think this is well thought?..)


     
  2. [valentinabrogna] sets a date for a GoogleHangout in September.
  3. Any more note or idea?

     Allright, If it is ok with everyone, I will start doing (and learning) the event page, right?

So sorry Rita, I actually thought you are Italian!  but hey, looking forward to talk to you in Romanian.

Let's first hear from Valentina (you pinged her so many times in your comment i'm sure it's impossible for her to miss it :) fyi i think 1 mention per message would do, or that's how i do it at least) and if everyone agrees, then I can help you set up the event page with very tentative information since for the rest of it we'll have to agree in the actual hangout..

Forgot to write that I will help Valentina and all of you managing the event during LOTE.
In october we are also doing INTRAVERSO (a 3-4 weeks slow-trip around Italy to meet Italian innovators) and we will do as much as possible to bring people from Italy to Matera at the end of the month (more info soon).

Actually, we develop together Farine Zero Zero (the pasta project) and I am already discussing the organization with Valentina. 

I think Matera is full of people (especially grand-mothers?) who have a big knowledge of making handmade pasta.
It would be great to have a connection with one of them or someone from her family.

If you have any idea....

LET'S KEEP WORKING!

1RST HANGOUT

valentinabrogna's picture

 

This is the email I sent to Ida, and Iam gonna sent to the others. Thank you Pacheca for the doodle. Alberto says it would be better the 2/3 September to have more materani. Anyway this hangout will be the one of a serie.

 

 

Buongiorno materani e edgeryders,

 

Come tutti sapete dal 29 ottobre al 3 novembre a Matera ci sarà "LIVING ON THE EDGE" a Unmonastery, una sorta di festival per inaugurare unmonstarery, 

un "nuovo tipo di spazio sociale, simile a quegli spazi di condivisione collaborativa di ambienti abitatitivi o professionali, utile alle comunità locali di villaggi o cittadine perché facilita il processo di co-creazione e di apprendimento reciproco tra la comunità e gli unMonasterians".

 

Visto che si tratta di un progetto molto aperto ho apertamente proposto un'iniziativa e con il sostegno e l'aiuto vostro e della comunità locale potrà realizzarsi.

 

L'idea è di organizzare un enorme PASTA PARTY, cioè una mattina o un pomeriggio in cui i partecipanti fanno la pasta (senza distinzione di genere o di età), eppoi la si mangia tutti insieme. L'idea è che i veterani aiutino gli aspiranti pastai nella realizzazione di un piatto 100% lucano, dagli ingredienti alla ricetta.

 

Per poter definire la dinamica dell'evento e gli aspetti logistici proponiamo di organizzare un incontro  video-chat. Vi prego quindi, se siete interessati, di compilare il questo  doodle, scegliendo la preferenza per il giorno e l'ora, in modo che verrà selezionatà data piu' gettonata.

Se ricevete questa mail è perchè qualcuno vi ha citato come possibile organizzatore.

 

Buona giornata a tutti e a presto!

 

Valentina

 

 

 

 

Goof morning materani and edgeryders,

 

A you know from the 29th of October to the 3rd of November In Matera will take place "Living un the Edge" at Unmonastery.

 

The event being open to all kind of porposals I made my own one and hope to make it effective with the help of edgeryders and the community of Matera.  

 

My idea was to organise a huge PASTA PARTY, that means making pasta all together (no matter sex or age) and later on eat it all together. Experienced people would help the less experienced ones in cooking a 100% "matera" tipical recipe. 

 

To set up and organise the event some people suggested to make an hangout. So please, if you are interested fill in the doodle and we'll have a date.

 

If you receive this e-mail is because someone suggested you as a potential organiser.

 

Have a nice day and talk to you soon!

Hangout space...

Alberto's picture

It's not a big deal to use one hangout or the other. However, there are certain advantages in trying to foster the habit of meeting "at the usual place": it becomes easier to keep track of different things going on (some of us participate in more than one call, for example the Friday morning #LOTE3 and the Monday morning unMonastery) and the likelihood of people "walking into the wrong (virtual) room" increases. Walking into the wrong room is a good thing, because people who do sometimes become the best collaborators! It makes for more serendipity. So, in the future, I recommend you try to use the usual hangout, which is http://goo.gl/JuNFc. It's written all over the workspace, so people don't have to retrieve that precious email with the link...

[valentinabrogna], can I ask you to add a picture to your profile? It looks better and it makes it easier to promote the things you are doing onto social media. :-)

Hello Edgeryders,

valentinabrogna's picture
Hello Edgeryders,
Sorry for this long silence.
During our first hangout we agreed on some points: the pasta recipe must be typical of that region and simple.
Those who took part to the discussion were available to help for all is needed. The day was not crucial. It could be any available date.
One critical point that emerged during the hangout was the question of the space, because it seemed that the biggest room in Unmonastery could host 10 people sited. The 12th of September a file was published that states there are 79 sitting places. Is this information correct ?
If so we could think about 79 people making pasta for 200 people. It would require the whole afternoon and evening. I don't know if it would be compatible with the others initiatives.
One more problem is that I tried to contact Ida and the association (Aide, Associazione delle donne) but I didn't have any reply. 
Rita, how could we invite some materani to participate to our discussion ? 
Pacheca and Dorotea, and all those who were available to help, will you be there and are you still available?

Hi Valentina, a quick update from my side regarding the program: last week in the community call we decided to concentrate Track1 - upSkilling and Track2 -building the unMonastery on 31st Thursday and 1st of November, Friday. This means 2 full days. On Saturday and Sunday we have the unConference, and probably people will start leaving on Sunday afternoon.

I'm thinking a good day for the party, if you say it takes a whole afternoon and evening, might by Wednedsay evening when most participants will have arrived. It's also a good way to kick start the conference, and get eveyone pumped up and excited, no?  Or is it too in the middle of the week for Materani?

Here I am!

Ilaria's picture

Here I am! I think the best thing to do to involve the local population (Casa Netural, ecc.) is to

  • write a post on the Matera 2019 community platform. Access, register (put a pic! It's always nicer), present yourself and the project and the webteam MT2019 will be in charge of spamming the whole thing in a tailored way accross SN.
  • For Anna Selvaggi, she usually does the cooking with some other women but we have to find the ingredients. So what I can do on Friday, with Rita, is call Anna Selvaggi and propose to find a moment where she comes with the women in a given place, we find the ingredients and start cooking. However there is the issue with equipment (where do we cook?).
  • Casa Netural is in the moddle of the Basilicata Border Games, but we can contact them and see if they would be willing to lend a hand. We can convey them to this thread and see if and how they react and what they propose.

Hello everybody

I wrote a mission on Matera Community platform to involve the local population.

We finally fix a date : wednesday the 30th of October and a plate orecchiette tomatoe sauce and dried ricotta.

About the equipement (tables ans chairs) and the participation of AIDE as tutors for those who will make pasta : do you have any news?

Regarding the how we can cook. I understood there was a kitchen in unmonastery. Isn't it?

About the ingredinets : flour tomatoes and ricotta, can you suggest a local factory that can give them, so that I can contact them? Or you think it would be bettere that epople bring all the ingredients ?

involving local community

RitaO's picture

Hi [valentinabrogna] and you all, I'll try to give some update and add some new questions

RECIPE: how many people will eat? Actually we're supposed to be more or less 100 persons; if we consider at least 50 Materani (I hope there will be!) we've to make a prediction on the amount of ingredients, right? Let's try to make it

FLOUR: 100 gr per person / 15 kg total (we could also consider less, it's just a tasting) so let's fix at least 10 kg
TOMATO SAUCE: more or less 10 kg
DRIED RICOTTA: 7 kg (I can ask for some to a friend of mine who owns a diary)
OIL, GARLIC, BASIL, WARM WATER
what about it? is it correct?

About tables and chairs the Municipality or MT2019 Committee can provide them.

The biggest issue is kitchen indeed: if weather is fine we could cook outside (now I've the phone number of some people that could lend camping stoves) otherwise we'll have problems for cooking (inside it's not possible to use those equipments for people safety). At the venue the kitchen won't be available

A possible alternative might be to involve the High School for hotel services and catering and cook pasta in their kitchen ;-). No problem that way!

What do you think? Please, we've not so much time and feed 150 persons at once it's not a joke! Ciao

About pasta party recipe

Giuseppe's picture

Hi Rita, reading your recipe........

I tell you in my family what happen when there is hand made pasta.....we are 3 in my family + 5 about my sister family.....so 8 in total.....my mother made 1,5 kg of pasta, and finish each time. So i think that not 15 kg.....but more than 20 kg is good like flour. About tomato i think is good measure. ricotta is too much, consider that is only like something not principal ingredienti think that 5kg is enough.....this is my opinion.

Great idea, Rita! The school

pacheca's picture

Great idea, Rita! The school kitchen, is probably the best place with equipment and capacity for many.

And would we eat the pasta also at the school? Before, we had thought about the possibility of eating in a public Plaza, somewhere.. Is it the Plaza near the school ? 

On that project in Norway that Immaginoteca shared, the pictures of people eating at the outdoor, seem to work very good! suggestiing community communion in public space. Well, depending on the weather... a Sunny day would be perfect. Other possibility would be the school courtyard opening the doors to a public event, if bad luck brings the rain, then the party could easialy be transfered to the school cateen inside, as a plan B...

Rita, you're taking so much stuff on your shoulders! :-) 

On the MT2019 community an idea was launched: to involve the "parrocchia" behind Piazza San Francesco and see if they have a kitchen and a room since apparently they organized a "mensa" for 1000 poor people. what do you think of it? 

Also, can't Casa Netural help out on this given their experience after the BB Games? You are doing so much!

To happy to do it.

About the ingredients

15 kg flour (hard wheat flour, not farine 00) I think 15 kg should be enough :it is a little bit more that 100 gms per person (100 gms flour + some water ), thtat is to say a normal plate. Flour is the cheapest ingredients and if we have at least 50 peoples making pasta it shouln'be difficult. The more we are the more we eat!!

10 kg tomatoe sauce ok

2 lt olive olil shoud be enough

2 kg of dried ricotta should be enough (not too sure about it, I can't figure out weight and volume)

1,5 kg bread crumbs should be enough

About the equipement let us know Rita if the school gave you a positive answer. If not what we need is two electric cooker (2 fuochi), one very big pot, another one a little smaller for the sauce and an additioal saucepan. 

Just to rassure you Francesco and  we have already done pasta for 100 people. 

Talk to you all soon!!!

As I said on Matera 2019 community site, I think that tomato sauce + dried ricotta is the only way we can cook our pasta. The recipe with "peperoni cruschi" and bread crumb is very tasty, but is a crazy work do it for 100 people (or more). Trust in me, I am a specialist :)
