The Deal

  • $79 for a seasonal ravioli class for two plus a $25 store credit ($163 value)

Pupils master the art of making ravioli 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 craft their take-home meals with ingredients including pumpkin and ricotta cheese, butternut and sage, or three cheese and organic herbs. While they prepare the pasta, students sample a prepared appetizer and sip organic beverages. Students bring home one shared package of raw pasta, enough 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.

Customer Reviews

I have taken two classes at the Local Epicurean; the chocolate truffle class and the ravioli making class. Both were a lot of fun and very instructional. I think I enjoyed the ravioli class more though because you are able to make everything from scratch so you really do make it all yourself and they already have the chocolate made for the truffles so it isn't a start to finish project. The store is very cute and offers all kinds of culinary delights. If you make the ravioli, it's worth it to buy some of their meatballs and tomato basil sauce to go with it! Yum! :)
