Learn to make the mother of all tomato sauces – Sugo – with LouLou. LouLou has channelled generations of Nonna’s to perfect this super intense recipe. She will also demonstrate how to make Nonna’s home made gnocchi using a foolproof recipe.

It’s a small group, hands on, and everyone will get a jar of freshly made ORGANIC sugo to take home. We finish off with a bowl of freshly made gnocchi smothered in fresh, rich sugo, parsley and parmesan cheese. It doesn’t get any better.

COMPULSORY BOOKING FEE $20 Full refund with 48 hours notice.

DATE Saturday March 5, 10 am to 1 pm, includes light lunch.
