Gnocchi/Kopytka (Potato Dumplings)

$35

with Sue Ligawiec Croteau

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 27, 2024 at 9 am

Learn how to make one of Poland's traditional dumplings from scratch. Similar to Italian gnocchi, we start with leftover mashed potatoes, incorporate our other ingredients, cook them and then learn how to finish the dish off to perfection. Sue will share her tips and tricks as we roll, form, cook, serve, and eat these tasty morsels of comfort food. Careful! These are addictively delicious.

Please bring containers to take home what we create.
