In the class, a professional chef taught us three ways to make gnocci along with myriad other cooking tips such as the proper way to chop herbs and a speedy style of onion-dicing. Not only are they extremely informative but they also serve beer, wine, and bubbly if you so desire. This is my second class at the chopping block and I will absolutely be back again.
My class made ricotta gnocci with a rosemary brown butter sauce, potato gnocci in a tomato cream sauce, and baked semolina gnocci with fontina and parmesan. Needless to say, it was DELICIOUS and I can't wait to try making gnocci on my own.
I really love taking cooking classes and my sweet friend Megan joined me for this class--turns out, she loved the class just as much as me. Now I have a friend to drag along whenever I want to learn a new skill in the kitchen! If you're in the Chicago metropolitan area I would highly recommend taking a class at The Chopping Block. The staff is really knowledgeable, the store is well-stocked, the classes are a blast, and I always meet new friends when I go!
