Cooking Class: Gnocchi and Sauces

A unique Italian favorite and a collection of sauces that will top it to perfection!


In this hands-on cooking class with Chef Landi, you’ll learn the technique for making gnocchi from scratch and prepare a trio of delicious sauces in the culinary tradition of sun-soaked southern Italy.

You’ll make a perfect potato dough before learning the proper way to cut and cook it into authentic gnocchi. Then, you’ll create a fresh caprese salad and sauces to top your gnocchi. You’ll make a rose sauce with marinara and heavy cream, an intriguing blue cheese sauce with cinnamon and a classic marinara sauce with basil. Your lesson finishes up with a silky vanilla crème brûlée.

I truly loved the experience. Chief Landi was prepared, professional, passionate, and accommodating. He welcomed all questions and took his time answering questions. He was entertaining and a good storyteller. He demonstrated many cooking techniques and allowed the opportunity to perform the techniques during meal preparation. I can’t wait to schedule another date and time again.
