Advanced Gnocchi

Advanced Gnocchi

Step up your gnocchi skills!

Here’s an “advanced version” of Chef-instructor Bridget Charters’ popular gnocchi classes. Gnocchi are traditional Italian dumplings which are soft as pillows, tender and delicious.

For this super fun class, Bridget will work out of Pasta by Hand by Jenn Louis- the wonderful book which is the inspiration for this class. You’ll learn how to use vegetables such as beets and squash to make gnocchi.  You’ll also learn how to make Canederli (which is the Italian version of Central and Eastern European knodel.)  The dough for Canederli is based on bread enriched with pork sausage and cheese.  In addition, Bridget will show you how to make, shape, and cook spätzli. 

As you watch Bridget demo, you’ll enjoy a substantial taste of each type of gnocchi, simply sauced to allow the flavor and texture of the gnocchi to shine through. Then you’ll roll up your sleeves and make both beet gnocchi and squash gnocchi hands-on. You’ll receive cooked beets and cooked squash to work with, and Bridget will teach you how to know when the consistency of the dough is right. You’ll learn how to work with gnocchi paddles, forks, and cheese graters to shape gnocchi. When you’re done, we’ll box up the gnocchi you made for you to take and cook at home.

A glass of wine or beer is included.
