The footage shows Fiona creating the pasta, cutting and folding it into lattice shapes, making filled pasta and pinching square sheets to make her own farfalle shaped treats. 

The video also shows how after the design is created she puts in through a press to flatten it out before cooking. 

In one scene Fiona creates green pasta with a light and dark pink flower design on it before cutting it up into neat blocks with a ridged roller to make a crimped outline.
