ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

"Giovedì gnocchi, venerdì pesce e sabato trippa..."

Or so the Roman saying goes.
Come join us for our newly-launched Thursday classes dedicated to this type of pasta (though we can also teach other days of the week on special request). Learn the tricks to get the right consistency and mouthfeel that you can reproduce at home. How do you make those signature grooves on gnocchi? How do you best conserve them? What is the ratio between potato and flour?

The class will include assembling and then the best part? Dining together with a good bottle of wine in our garden!

ABOUT THEMENU

Homemade gnocchi alla sorrentina: tomato sauce with fresh basil and melted mozzarella, topped with pecorino (sheep milk cheese)

Alternatively, you may select one of these other sauces in advance. Do note that we will be making only 1:
1) al castelmagno - a Piedmontese cheese sauce
2) al gorgonzola piccante e noci - Italian sharp blue cheese and walnuts
3) al crema di peperoni e ricotta - bell pepper and ricotta sauce
4) al pesto genovese - Green pesto from Genova (contains pine nuts)

For dessert, you may select one of the following options. We will be making only 1:
1) Tiramisu classico, with pasteurized eggs, coffee and mascarpone (optional: Marsala wine)
2) Our version of Tiramisu alle fragole - eggless, sweetened ricotta and mascarpone cream, strawberries (optional: rum)
3) Our dolce tricolore - eggless; base of crushed amaretti, sweetened ricotta, homemade strawberry compote (optional: pistachio liquor)
4) Torta al vino rosso e olio di oliva - red wine chocolate cake using extra-virgin olive oil instead of butter!

My girlfriend and I took the Gnocchi Thursdays cooking class with Nadia and Matteo, and they were absolutely phenomenal. The food was incredible, and they were excellent teachers. The lesson was perfectly hands on, well planned out, and we left having learned so much more about Italian cuisine, Tiramisu, the right way to make pesto, and so much more! They were well prepared, kitchen was well stocked, and the environment was perfect. Every part of the eating experience was excellent, and was without a doubt the best food we had eaten in all of Italy. When they inevitably open up their own restaurant, we want to be their first customers. Beyond how amazing the food was, Nadia and Matteo were great hosts. They were awesome company and were very warm, inviting, friendly, funny, and hospitable. Dinner was a ton of fun and an overall amazing experience. We cannot recommend Nadia and Matteo highly enough!
