Chef Steve Samson says that every morning, growing up in Bologna, Italy, his nonna would make fresh pasta. Some days she rolls out tagliatelle, other days it’s tortelloni. What Samson calls “the cook” is at the heart of his downtown Rossoblu restaurant, where stuffed fresh pasta are some of the restaurant’s signature dishes.
On this week’s episode of “The Bucket List: Dumplings,” Steve and his wife and partner Dina invite us into their kitchen to make three types of stuffed noodles including tortelloni, tortellini and sfoglia Lorda, a folded stuffed noodle and cut into small squares, usually eaten in hot broth.
Then we visited Pasta Sisters in Culver City, where chef-owner Paola Da Re
showed us how to make her signature tortellini and ravioli.
