Summer Cooking Class Schedule

Red Pump Kitchen is launching a summer cooking class series! Drawing on our Tuscan and Italian inspired fare, the interactive class will highlight our farm-to-table philosophy. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a culinary curious foodie, our signature cooking classes are fit for any level of experience. Following a hands-on demonstration, guests will sit down together to enjoy the fruits (er, carbs) of their labor! Red Pump’s Sommelier TC Whysall will also share the best wines to pair with each dish. See below for a taste of our new cooking class schedule and to sign up today.

2019 Summer Cooking Class Schedule

Sunday, June 9th: Knead to Know Gnocchi 

Light as a feather, our made-from-scratch pillowy dumplings are bites of perfection. In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn our Chef’s secret to making no-fail ricotta gnocchi that is fun and delicious for summer. We’ll learn how to dress it up or down as we create two different sauces: an oyster mushroom crème fraîche and a simple Italian salsa verde.

Sunday, July 14th: Pizza 101

In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn the secrets behind Red Pump’s perfect dough – it’s all about the crust to us – light and airy that’s crispy yet chewy! This recipe is sure to be tucked into your recipe archives (and passed down) for years to come. You’ll also sharpen your knife skills as you learn to properly chop and prep veggies. You’ll top off the pizza with delicious pork sausage.

Sunday, August 11th: Cavatelli Per Favore

In a literal sense, Cavatelli translates to “little hollows.” But, it means way more to us at Red Pump. This simple, rustic casalinga-style pasta from Southern Italy is one of the most fun kinds of pasta to make. And, the best part is that you don’t need any fancy equipment so you can easily make these again (and again) at home. We’ll learn how to dress it up or down as we make two different sauces: a rich lamb sauce and a simple basil pesto.
