The Italian Kitchen – Ricotta Gnocchi 3 Course Dinner

If you’re a fan of potato gnocchi, let us introduce you to its cousin – ricotta gnocchi (No potatoes required!) Lighter and slightly chewy, ricotta gnocchi is a snap to make and doesn’t compromise our love for the delicious, pillowy nuggets with which we are familiar. Chef Jen Tarantino Reyes will instruct you how to prepare perfect gnocchi and teach you different rolling techniques (the way her grandmother and mother taught her). Once you pair braised Italian sausage with the light ricotta gnocchi, you’ll be sold!

In this hands-on class, we will make:

  • Tuscan Kale Salad with Parmesan and Toasted Breadcrumbs
  • Ricotta Gnocchi with Tomato Butter Sauce and Braised Italian Sausage ( from our Sausage Class)
  • Sfingi – Italian Fried Doughnuts with a Dark Chocolate Sauce

The Italian Kitchen – Pasta Workshop

Making your own pasta is quick and easy and after this hands-on class with Chef Jen Tarantino Reyes, you’ll think nothing of mixing up a batch for a weeknight supper. Add essential recipes for sauces made with fresh herbs and seasonal produce and you’ll have a go-to recipe repertoire. You’ll start with just flour and eggs, creating your own pasta dough that you will turn into one stuffed pasta and one cut pasta to serve along with two unique sauces!

In this hands-on class, you will make:

  • Fresh Handmade Pasta Dough
  • Ravioli with a Lemon Herbed Ricotta Filling in a Light Tomato Sauce
  • Fresh Cut Tagliatelle Pasta with Wild Mushroom Sauce

(a staff favorite…even if you’re not a mushroom lover this dish wows the crowd)
