Relish's On The Farm events are culinary gatherings on local family farms. All On The Farm events include a private farm tour, cooking discussion and seasonal four-course meal, featuring farm ingredients, served with specially-selected local wines. Chefs, chosen because of an affinity with the particular farm, will provide recipes that highlight the farm's specialty, whether it is produce picked at the peak of the season or artisan cheese at the height of flavor. All On The Farm locations are working farms and, as such, are rustic and natural. These intimate gatherings are limited to no more than 40 guests.

Making pasta!Handmade Pasta and Ricotta (hands-on)
with chef Anne Cornell

Friday, September 23

6 - 9 pm

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg
$98

Making pasta from scratch is the ultimate playing-with-your-food experience. Kneading, rolling, cutting, shaping—we're talking grown-up Playdoh here. At this class Chef Anne Cornell will lead guests through the process of making pasta from start to finish, including making fresh Ricotta Cheese (a wonderful same-day cheese to make at home) for ravioli filling. Guests will learn the process for adding farm fresh eggs to flour to create the perfect consistency, then knead the dough to learn when the it's ready. We'll work together to make the filling with our freshly-made Ricotta. Then we'll roll out the pasta, transforming half into fettuccine and half into Ricotta-stuffed Ravioli. Everyone will be hands-on with all steps in the process. Our handmade pastas would not be complete without sauces so we'll make a fresh summer tomato sauce and a delicate herbed brown butter sauce. Our pasta dinner will be served with a contrasting green salad and we'll end our meal with a surprise sweet finish.
