The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a Handmade Pasta for Two class for two at La Cucina at the Market at the Reading Terminal Market (a $165 value). Click here for a complete list of class dates and times.
La Cucina at the Market has earned accolades such as the title of Best Cooking Classes of Philly in 2011 in Philadelphia magazine and a feature in the New York Times for its private cooking classes, and continues to pass on Italian recipes and techniques in pasta-making courses. During the 2-hour sessions, novice to experienced food sculptors learn the techniques to prepare from scratch the internationally renowned noodle. Students mix, knead, roll, and cut their own fettuccini, potato gnocchi, and penne pasta that can serve as delectable main dishes or makeshift Mr. Potato Head accessories. Afterward, learn how to outfit nude pastas with house-made sauce such as marinara napoletana and quatro formaggi. Small class sizes of 10–15 students allow for personal instruction and leave students with enough knowledge to delectably decorate any tabletop or child's head with fresh noodles.
We made three different types of pasta and three different sauces - all from scratch!Kristie H., Yelp, 7/18/11
