$59 for a Pasta-Making Class for Two with a Take-Home Dinner ($118 Value)

In classes beginning on May 15, pupils master the art of making pasta the ancient Roman way, mixing all of the ingredients by hand on a countertop instead of using a bowl. Once they’ve made the dough, they can choose from a variety of pasta styles to craft their take-home meals, including stuffed ravioli, layered lasagna, or filled cannelloni. While they prepare the pasta, students sample a prepared appetizer and sip organic beverages. Students bring home enough raw pasta for a meal for four people. Classes are offered seven days a week between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The Local Epicurean

At The Local Epicurean, owner Ryan Raredon, who has been profiled in the Grand Rapids Press, began pasta making as a hobby, before success at selling his noodles and seasonings in farmers’ markets inspired him to open his own store, where a panoply of handmade herb-infused sundries now resides. From pasta-making, Ryan has now expanded his store to include a Chocolate Lounge filled with delectable selections of cocoa-based confections. The store's newest space boasts a full chocolate menu with a wide selection of organic coffee and tea. Guests can opt for the Lounge's signature "Cha-Co-Lot" drink, delicately crafted and served in an antique silver coffee pot, a slice of triple chocolate cheesecake, or head to the paring stand to sample hand-made chocolates, dipped berries, cheeses, and breads. Patrons can satisfy their sweet-tooth cravings at The Chocolate Lounge seven days a week.
