Skip the pasta machine and get ready to use your hands to create orecchiette (little ears), cavatelli (dimpled pasta) and more with Chef Emily! This simple pasta dough has just three ingredients, and is easily shaped by both big and little hands. Parents and kids will work together to mix and knead their dough, shape the noodles, then share a delicious meal using local produce and meats from Appleton Farms. Chef Emily will use the finished pasta to demo an easy seasonal recipe and everyone will have time at the end to eat.  

Winter menu: Orecchiette with Brown Butter, Butternut Squash, Pork Sausage and Sage. Does not contain eggs. This dish can be made vegetarian or vegan.

Dates:

  • Saturday, January 25 from 10:30 am-12:30 pm
  • Saturday, February 8 from 10:30 am-12:30 pm
  • Saturday, March 28 from 10:30 am-12:30 pm

Attendees MUST purchase a ticket to attend this class. Each child MUST be accompanied by at least one adult; and adults are not allowed without kids. This class is appropriate for ages 6 and up.

Any questions or preferences please reach out to appletonfarms@thetrustees.org.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other families to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on local, seasonal farmers, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

Costs: $44 (Adult) / $9 (Child) per Trustees of Reservations member and $55 (Adult) / $15 (Child) per nonmember. Please note: one ticket is required for each attendee - both adults and kids require a ticket for entry. 

About Chef Emily Trotochaud

Emily Trotochaud is a passionate chef, teacher and maker. After receiving her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she became a full time production potter. With her combined passion for food and craft, she began looking for another creative outlet outside of work. This led her to starting a website, 100 Days of Pasta. It wasn’t long after that she began teaching private cooking workshops out of her home and all over New England. Her approachable videos and tutorials shared on her website and social media aim to inspire home cooks like herself to have the confidence to tackle everything from fresh pasta, to takeout worthy thai, homemade croissants and more. She is excited to be joining the Boston Public Market community, and looks forward to showcasing local ingredients and flavors in cuisine from around the world.
