Reviewed by Kelli N. on 4/4/2017
I took the pasta workshop at The Chopping Block and had a great time. The class was hands-on, from making the pasta from scratch to rolling it out, cooking it and eating it. Chef Joey Hahn was incredibly knowledgeable and taught us about knife skills and cooking techniques. The dishes we made were delicious and there were tons to take home after.
