Pasta and Pinot Package

Fresh pasta and wine… you can’t argue with that combination as it has stood the test of time and will always be a fantastic way to spend an evening. This class is an adult only cooking class where you enjoy a glass of wine as you learn how to hand roll pasta, create ravioli, gnocchi, tortellini, linguini and more. The class will be different each time, so you can keep coming back! One time make egg noodles and ravioli; the next Spätzle and gnocchi, anther time it’ll be fettuccini and tortellini. This is the perfect class for a group of friends.  We will also be making some traditional sauces. There’s other surprise dishes for your meal…like roasted red pepper and asparagus to go nicely with fettuccini or meatballs for spaghetti, for example, that you’ll discover at the dining table. Spread the word and let’s have a pasta party!

Each session includes instructions and samples, plus leftovers to take back home. Everyone in the session sits together and dines on pasta and sauce creations.  Two complimentary glasses of wine; also, bring a bottle of your favorite if you wish!

Stay and Play-Celebrating 10 Years of our Cooking School

We are celebrating 10 years of our cooking school in 2019!  It all started in Whitehall in a tiny kitchen in early 2009 (April).  Incorporated in June).  Named Bygone Basics for most of the 10 years, the cooking school was moved to a larger house in 2010 and rocked a large kitchen!  In early 2019, Chef Valerie felt that the name no longer described the experience.  So it was changed to Art of Cookery in March 2019.  The renamed cooking school will be moving back to Whitehall in May of 2010 to an even larger kitchen!  To celebrate these three wonderful things, we are giving some nice discounts to the first 10 people to snag them.  Get 10% off your cooking school experience in April and May 2019.  And 19% off classes in June.  Finally, receive 9% off in July and August.  Mention this discount when registering for your class(es).

Wood Fired Pizza!

You can learn to make and bake a wood fired pizza!  Book a two day stay at Art of Cookery via Airbnb, and participate in a private pizza cooking class.  You’ll make a 3 topping 14″ homemade wood-fired pizza.  Schedule based on availability and weather permitting.  If you schedule this and the weather is inclement, your pizza will be cooked on a stone inside the kitchen ovens.  No pizza events scheduled from 11/1 – 3/31 due to potential for freezing weather to crack a hot outdoor oven.   This cannot be offered for gluten free diets.
