Holy yum, am I right?? Yesterday, Stephen and I went to a pasta making class courtesy of CourseHorse. This is a company that makes local education more accessible by helping providers reach new audiences. They have recently launched in Atlanta and provide anything from lifestyle classes like cooking and art classes to business classes like finance and technical skills.
I opted for a cooking class because we all know my skills are little sub-standard. This class took place at the delicious Bellina Alimentari in Ponce City Market. It was incredible and SO fun. I fully expected to mess it up, but our Chef and instructor was super helpful and attentive to make sure we didn’t do that.
We had a great hands-on experience learning all of the steps and techniques to create the perfect noodle. We made our dough, rolled it out, flattened it, cut the dough and used the machine to slice our pasta. It was so awesome to do the process from scratch, beginning to end, and see the final result.
We created angel hair and fettuccine noodles that we took home. After our course, our Chef served us some delicious butter spinach fettuccine so we could enjoy a snack and a glass of wine before we left. I swear to you, this was one of the most delicious little bowls of pasta I’ve ever tasted.
After the course and our meal was over, we shopped around in the market at Bellina Alimentari for a sauce we could serve with our homemade pasta. We found this delicious pesto and quickly snapped it up so we could head home to cook our meal. We had such a sense of pride knowing that we made this dish from scratch and it made it even that much more delicious.
I am SO excited that CourseHorse is launching in Atlanta. I have added so many courses to my wish list including: floral design, water color, soap making, make-up, photography, professional development, and all the cooking classes I can get my hands on. I am so excited to learn new skills with CourseHorse.
What class would you take?
