NOT MUCH BEATS A BOWL OF CARBS

Wash that pasta down with some vino and call it a recipe for the perfect night! Our beginner cooking class teaches you the skills you need to impress everyone at your next dinner party.  In this class, learn the fundamentals you need to make the perfect pasta and tomato sauce from scratch. We promise you will never want dried pasta out of a bag again.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Learn knife techniques from a trained chef 
  • Pre-made appetizer meat and cheese platter 
  • Small group size for hands on help 
  • Learn to make pasta from scratch 
  • Class includes a full meal
  • Learn how to make panna cotta  
  • All the fun and none of the cleaning! 
  • Customizable for private groups
  • BYOB (wine and beer) 

We will begin the class by learning some basic cooking techniques from our chef instructor while snacking on some premade appetizers, so nobody gets ‘hangry.’  Since this is one of our more casual cooking class options, we encourage you to bring your own wine and take your time. 

After everyone feels prepared from the chef demo, we will break into teams. After looking over the recipes we will start by making our dessert and placing it in the fridge to set. Next we will prepare our pasta dough with hands-on help from your instructor. 

While the dough is resting, we will gather the ingredients for our secret sauce and learn key knife skills (pinch grip, anyone?). After testing out our new knife skills on our sauce and salad veggies, we will put our sauce on the stove. By this time our dough should be ready to roll, (pun intended). Each group member will get a chance to roll out their own dough either by hand or with the pasta machine. 

Once we have completed the cooking, we set the table for a family-style meal to taste our masterpieces. Here you can enjoy some good conversation with your peers, and mangia! With all of your new skills, your friends will be begging you to host the next dinner party.
