Online Cooking Class - Gnocchi 101

Learn how to make pillowy authentic Italian gnocchi at home in this interactive online cooking class.

During this live and interactive virtual cooking class with Chef James, you will learn the trade secrets to preparing authentic Italian gnocchi at home, including how to add those hallmark ridges to catch the sauce.

But not just any sauce. Chef James will also teach you how to brew a batch of soul-warming San Marzano sauce made with tomatoes hailing from the south of Italy — or really, any canned tomatoes. From start to finish, you'll discover how simple it is to make this classic Italian dish from scratch.

"I'll teach you the secrets to making gorgeous hand-formed gnocchi paired with a simple San Marzano comfort sauce." - Chef James
