Making Pasta at home

One of our most popular classes is our Seasonal Pasta and Gnocchi classes.  Recently one of our culinary adventurers took the lessons he learned at class and replicated them at home.  Better yet, he shared the results on Facebook.  It was wonderful to see the recipe recreated at home and shared with his family.  At our hands-on classes, we are able to teach skills to last a lifetime. Here is the recipe he made at home and a picture of the delicious dish.
