$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. But his handmade pastas and seasonings soon became so popular at local farmers’ markets that he was inspired to open his own store. Beyond pasta, today the space is filled with fine infused oils, cheeses, breads, and other sundries that make customers' pasta feasts all the more special.

But the store is more than just a point of sale for artisanal foods. A chocolate lounge area is filled with selections of cocoa-based confections and organic coffees and teas where guests can sit and peacefully sip. There's even a space for classes where students meet to learn the fine art of pasta-making, with pasta flavors varying based on seasonality and the commands of a magic 8 ball.
