Such a great experience! Awesome instructors and loved the personal attention even though you’re in a class! All of the classes are adjustable to be vegetarian friendly which is awesome! Also - you can drink while you cook - a definite plus for us! Overall a super cool experience!

We had a great experience! The bar tender was very knowledgeable about all the wines and cheeses and didn’t make us feel awkward for being newbies. Would definitely recommend.

About 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.
