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

Or so the Roman saying goes.
Join us in our Thursday classes dedicated to this type of pasta (though we can also teach on other days of the week; please check with us for availability). Learn the tricks to get the right consistency and mouthfeel that you can then recreate in the comfort of your home. How do you make those signature grooves on gnocchi? How do you best conserve them? What is the ratio between potato and flour? What kind of potatoes? Egg, or no egg?

The class will include assembling a dessert of your choice and then the best part? Dining together with a good bottle of wine!


You may select one of these other sauces in advance. Do note that we usually make only 1 type for each class:

1) al gorgonzola piccante e noci - Italian sharp blue cheese and walnuts
2) al crema di peperoni e ricotta - bell pepper and ricotta sauce
3) al pesto genovese - Green pesto recipe from Genova (contains pine nuts)
4) Gnocchi alla sorrentina - Homemade gnocchi alla sorrentina: tomato sauce with fresh basil and melted mozzarella, topped with pecorino (sheep milk cheese)
5) con burro e salvia - sage and butter sauce
6) con crema di zucchine - zucchini and mint sauce
7) al ragu - minced meat and tomato sauce
8) con salsiccia, funghi e pomodori - with Italian sausage, mushroom and tomatoes

For dessert, please select one of the following options:
1) Tiramisù classico, with pasteurized eggs, coffee and mascarpone (optional: Marsala)
2) Limonisù - our version of lemon tiramisù, made with a lemon-mascarpone cream (optional: homemade limoncello)
3) Dolce tricolore - eggless; base of crushed amaretti, sweetened ricotta, homemade seasonal fruit compote (optional: pistachio liquor)
4) Torta "Black Magic" - red wine chocolate cake using extra-virgin olive oil instead of butter!
5) Dolce al torrone - chilled, layered dessert of savoiardi and torrone cream (contains dairy and almonds; can be made eggless on request)
6) Amore di Marrone - chilled, layered dessert of amaretti cookies and chestnut-dark chocolate cream
7) Luce del Sole - chilled, layered dessert of savoiardi dipped in freshly squeezed orange juice and a sweetened citrusy ricotta cream, topped with pieces of orange dark chocolate (liquer optional)
8) Gioia di Chiaia - lemon and extra-virgin olive oil cake, tart, sweet, dense and moist (optional: limoncello)

Please let us know of any dietary specifications beforehand. We do our best to create a memorable, engaging and fun experience for our guests!

Nadia and Matteo were very knowledgable, incredibly hospitable, and lots of fun.




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!
