Everything you need will be provided for you - just arrive ready to participate! At the end of the class, savor your freshly made creations as you enjoy a special lunch with your chef. You'll receive copies of the recipes you prepare in class and a tip sheet to bring home.
The class includes:
Fresh pastas & sauces: Learn how to prepare fresh pasta dough for fettuccine, raviolis and tortellini's. You'll also learn how to create fillings and sauces to accompany pastas. In addition to a basic dough recipe, you'll create a basil pesto, a hearty Bolognese sauce, and ricotta ravioli filling. Thursday, 10:30 am - 1:30 pm. $90 per person.
During your cooking sessions the chef will also share tips on knife skills, safety and sanitization, and how to "plate" or set up an eye-pleasing presentation of each dish.
