The Deal

  • $283 for Food Lovers Weekend in West Michigan ($538 value)

Culinary adventures begin with a Saturday pasta-making class. The Local Epicurean hosts, teaching event-goers how to make their own pasta, which is then prepared with a savory sauce and served as part of the four-course dinner, alongside shrimp en papillote, caprese salad, and dessert. Evenings heat up at any of Grand Rapids’ lively nightlife destinations or cool down with a stay in a relaxing upscale hotel.

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

Such a fun class. Great lunch and a wonderful and interesting way to have a afternoon out with my husband. We brought the pasta home for dinner - rave reviews from the family. I would highly recommend their food classes.

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.
