The Deal

  • $59 for lunch, pasta-making class, and relaxing chocolate lounge experience for two ($118 value)

Before mastering the art of making pasta the ancient Roman way (mixing all of the ingredients by hand on a countertop instead of using a bowl), pupils enjoy a lunch of champagne-infused cheese fondue with shrimp, lobster, and vegetables, paired with infused beverages. During a pasta making session, students enjoy the delights of crafting a stained glass organic herb pasta with sicilian pesto. Following the pasta class, guests can venture to the Chocolate Lounge and revel in organic coffee and tea along with handmade chocolate truffles. After class, students bring home one shared package of raw pasta, enough for a meal for four people. Classes are offered seven days a week.

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.

Customer Reviews

The pasta making class with lunch was fun and informative. Lunch was great and I took advantage of the discount offered on store items at the end of class.

The Local Epicurean is a delicious smelling shop with hand-made cheeses, sauces, pasta noodles and chocolates. They set a table up in the window for the chocolate lunch. It was a really fun, unique experience and the food was delicious and filling!
