Sorrentino's Gnudi Class

Are you interested in how to prepare authentic Italian cuisine? Learn how to make gnocchi, also known as a dumpling, and a mainstay found in any traditional Italian family's diet. Find out the insider tips and tricks to making this beloved centuries-old food staple by taking Sorrentino's Vegetarian Gnocchi class on February 15th. Vegetarian gnocchi, called gnudi, is specially prepared with ricotta cheese rather than potato, which results in a lighter and more pillowy texture. As with all classes offered through Sorrentino, you will sit down for a sublime dinner featuring the culinary masterpiece you created. The menu for the evening includes gnudi in tomato sauce, basil gnudi in brown butter sauce, and Italian chopped salad-all paired with an inspired selection of wine. Reserve your spot ASAP!
