This evening, you'll not only learn to make classic Italian ricotta gnocchi – those heavenly little dumplings that melt in your mouth – you’ll also whip up some fabulous accompanying sauces.  

Making ricotta gnocchi (pronounced "nee-okkee") is a little more forgiving than the traditional potato gnocchi and, in our opinion, even tastier... not to mention lower in carbs! (And, who doesn’t love that little perk!?) So, it’s a perfect variation to add to your repertoire. Trust us, your friends and family will be so impressed when you serve these gems, they’ll be clamoring for seconds… and thirds! 

Speaking of perks, gnocchi can be made in advance, which makes it the perfect entrée for your next dinner party or family meals on those busy nights when you need a quick, satisfying dinner on the table. 

Chef & Lead Culinary Instructor extraordinaire, Jill Garcia Schmidt, will walk you through the gnocchi-making process, step-by-step, offering guidance and helpful hints along the way.  She’s an expert!  You'll have the opportunity to get your hands in the dough and learn to perfect your skills as you explore the gnocchi-making basics.

The three heavenly sauces are a simple Sage Brown Butter, a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and a Pesto Sauce. Yes, of course… you'll get to taste the gnocchi and all of the fabulous sauces that Chef will whip up. Duh.

This is a good one, folks!  Sign up today!
