time & location
Jun 09, 2022, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
The Upstate Table, 45 Pine Grove Ave Suite 101, Kingston, NY 12401, USA
Join us in the studio for a fun evening of cooking and comaradarie. In this hands-on cooking dinner party, you’ll learn how to make 3 types of fresh pasta: fettuccine, herb ravioli with laminated dough and ricotta gnudi. The Upstate Table’s veteran pasta makers Rebecca Ffrench and Frida Kristinsdottir will lead you through making two types of dough to rolling out and cooking the pasta. We will incorporate fresh vegetables from the YMCA Farm Project into our meal, and we will share our thought process of using what’s fresh and available to create our menu. The evening will culminate in a festive dinner around our table.
