Cooking Class: Make Creamy Pesto-Topped Gnocchi

Learn to turn out your own delicate gnocchi for a fresh take on Italian dining in this hands-on cooking class. Chef Legina is ready and waiting to share her secrets for creating this delicious alternative to traditional pasta. 

You'll use a blend of potatoes, flour and eggs to create homestyle dough and turn it into a batch of the freshest gnocchi in town. Then, turn your attention to the topping, a blend of earthy pesto with the goodness of fresh basil and silky cream sauce featuring tender mushrooms.

I really enjoyed the food and how intimate the class was! I wish there was more opportunity to be hands on with the food. Most of the time it felt like a cooking show rather than a class. I loved the teachers though and their personalities shined!
