The Deal

  • $59 for a gnocchi-making class for two ($118 value)

Pupils master the art of making gnocchi the ancient Roman way, crafting the little dumplings with ricotta cheese, two-year-old parmesan, organic basil, and butternut squash and sage. While they prepare the pasta, students sample an Italian charcuterie platter with imported cheese, fruit, and prosciutto, and sip on beverages. Participants take home all of the gnocchi they make.

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.
