March 2: Pasta and Potato Bliss Class

March 2: Pasta and Potato Bliss Class

Join us for this class on: Saturday, March 2

‘’Mamma mi fai pasta e patate?’’ This is a question that I’ve pronounced and heard so many times…In English, it translates to Mom, can you make pasta e patate?These words are not just a simple request for a meal, but the anticipation of savoring a dish that’s as much a part of my family story as it is a source of comfort and joy.

It’s a beloved Italian classic, originally from Napoli, a simple yet satisfying combination of pasta and potatoes, coming together with a velvety, flavorsome broth. It’s a reminder that the most exquisite dishes don’t always require a long list of ingredients but, rather, a deep understanding of flavors, the right balance of seasoning, and the love that transforms a humble bowl of soup into a cherished family tradition. 

My answer to the question is always… yes!

When will I know what ingredients to purchase for the classes?

The full recipe and list of ingredients for each class are already published on each Class page, so you can start to prepare for future classes as soon as you enroll. You will also receive a shopping list by email about one week in advance, with a reminder the day before class.

When is the latest I can enroll in a class?

Enrollment will stay open until the last minute. However, for the best experience, we recommend enrolling at least 24 hours in advance – and even further in advance if you need extra time to shop for ingredients. Additionally, important instructions will be sent out the day before each class.

What if I miss a live cooking class or have to leave early?

Participants will have access to video recordings of any class they purchase. That way you can watch the replay (and cook) whenever is most convenient for you.

How does it work? Do I need a special program to participate in the class?

Cooking classes will be held on Zoom. This requires a quick and easy download, but you do not need a special Zoom account to participate (we’ll send all the instructions on how to use Zoom if you register for a class)

Class information and video replays will be hosted on this website. You will set up a password to access your class page when you enroll.

Important, class communications will be sent out via email.
