About the class

Join us for an immersive hands-on experience where you’ll learn the art of making perfect gnocchi from scratch! Led by our expert chef, this workshop will take you through every step of the process, from selecting the finest ingredients to achieving that ideal balance of lightness and texture. Here’s what’s on the menu:

  1. Ricotta Gnocchi with Basil Pesto: Dive into pillowy ricotta gnocchi, delicately flavored with fragrant basil pesto. A harmonious blend of creamy and herbaceous notes.
  2. Potato Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce: Discover the classic potato-based gnocchi, paired with a rich tomato sauce. Each tender morsel absorbs the flavors, creating a comforting and satisfying dish.

Please share any special considerations (medical, physical, learning) that will help your instructor make your class accessible and accommodating for you. You can share these considerations when register or by emailing Sean at
