What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

If you haven't made hand-rolled gnocchi yet, here is your big chance. The stuff you buy shrink-wrapped in the supermarket is a dense, pale substitute for light and fluffy ricotta gnocchi you can produce with your own hands. Using fresh ricotta cheese (instead of the more time-consuming boiled potato option), the dish is a snap to make and a great one to add to your dinner repertoire. 

MENU:

  • Fresh Ricotta Gnocchi

  • Classic Marinara Sauce

  • Arugula Salad with Lemon-Parmigiano Dressing

How these Virtual Classes work:

1) After registering, you will be sent a link to log into the class at the appointed date/time.

2) If you choose the "cook along" option, you will be send a short shopping list ahead of the class, so you can actively participate and have a complete meal to enjoy at the end. Yum!

3) Two days before the class you will be sent a copy of the recipes we'll be making, so you can cook them again after the class.

4) Classes are 90 minutes and will have a maximum of 8 people attending each session.

5) For once, we can teach literally anyone on the planet (not just New Yorkers!), so please feel free to pass along the class info to any friends you'd like to cook along with!

SHOPPING LIST for GNOCCHI DINNER

Because grocery shopping is not so easy these days, here is a sneak peek at what you will need in case that is helpful:
(enough groceries to feed 4 people)

GROCERIES:

  • 2 heads endive
  • 1 large head radicchio
  • 1 bunch arugula or small bag/box baby arugula (or get any kind of lettuce you can find)
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Small bunch fresh basil (optional)
  • 4 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano, or any Parmesan cheese (1 piece if possible, but pre-grated is fine too)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pound whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 twenty-eight ounce can whole peeled tomatoes 

STAPLES TO HAVE ON HAND:

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

The Baking Basics

Holiday Candy Workshop

Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults


Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class. 

Non-refundable, credit only.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Missed Class Policy

What can I do if I have to miss a class during a Boot Camp?

We understand that finding 6 consecutive weeks on your calendar to book a Boot Camp can be challenging, but because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer you a make-up class if you cannot make one or more of the classes. As a consolation we have two options, for those who need to miss a class within a Boot Camp series:

1) Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or

2) Opt for our "Plan B" program:

You are welcome to attend any of our classes that still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats, as opposed to giving you a seat in a future class that would otherwise have been paid for. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing)

Plan B does not have any expiration date; just be in touch with me directly when you find a class that works for you.

Handmade Gnocchi Dinner (Virtual Cooking)
Reviewed by Sarah F. on 3/10/2021
While the gnocchi was fun to make and tasted great, the other elements of the meal were an afterthought. Our instructor didn’t even go through making the salad. In fact, she said it was optional. Though there was no mention of that in the instructions and we bought all the ingredients. The salad was incredibly bitter and lacked balance. The sauce was bland. We added additional spices and fresh basil and it did little to improve what was in the recipe. Overall, the gnocchi was fun to make but we could have done that step on our own. In the past, cooking classes I’ve taken have included an educational aspect that make the class worth more than googling a recipe. This was lacking in our class experience. For example, a pizza class I took went into the history of pizza, the science behind the dough process, how flours impact the dough and ways to adapt your recipe, etc.

Gnocchi and salad were amazing. My family really enjoyed the meal. Chef sets a good pace, enough time for you to find your materials and follow along. Great confidence booster, no need to ever buy jarred sauce again - you can make it quickly and easily. Very enjoyable class.
