The Deal

  • $79 for a mozzarella-making and organic butter-making class for two ($158 value)

Local chefs and a cheese monger teach students to make mozzarella and organic butter. Students choose various ingredients to infuse into their cheese and butter and take home all of the fresh food they make during the class.

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.

Enjoyed a chocolate lunch with my spouse. Fun experience, as long as one likes chocolate..lol

It was a fun class! The lunch was yummy and instruction good. I wish there had been recipes given to us. People learn different ways, and I learn by reading. Also a sauce recipe would have been a wonderful bonus.

The class was well taught and easy to follow. The food was delicious as well. I am glad I got the Groupon for this class and will be back to The Local Epicurean for other classes they offer.
