Summer From Scratch

During our summer series of "from scratch" classes we're going to have some fun with flour—biscuits and fresh pasta. These start-to-finish classes will take longer than an hour (but not more than two).


Biscuits (Family Class)

Make biscuits from scratch? Yes, you can! Measure, mix, cut and bake. You will make your own batch of biscuits to take home. If you need to pop back to work, we’ll take the biscuits out of the oven for you to pick up afterward. You are welcome to bring lunch to enjoy in our kitchen while your biscuits are baking.

This is a family class open to parents and up to two children age 8+ per adult. You don’t have to have a child with you! Just know that this is not an all-adult class.

  • 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
  • $12 per person (Register each adult and child individually, if applicable.)
  • Register through 5 p.m. on July 7

Fresh Pasta

Fresh pasta offers the perfect opportunity to use beautiful summer vegetables. Measure, mix, roll, cut and dry. You will make several portions of fresh pasta to take home. You are welcome to bring lunch to eat between tasks.
