If you’ve been with us for a while, you know how much we love our Bar Sugo! Whether you’re looking for the best meatballs in the state, spins on classic Italian dishes, pizza with pizzaz, or fresh-out-of-the-bowl pasta, you need go nowhere else. So, we’re not sure why Chef Pat Pascarella would reveal his secrets for making his killer pasta (well, he’s nice, that’s why!), but he’s doing it anyway with a series of interactive pasta classes. You’ll get a hands-on experience with Chef, will make at least two different pasta dishes, get recipe cards to take home, and celebrate with a meal featuring your handiwork. The class lasts an hour with lunch afterwards, so you’ll be hanging at Bar Sugo for about two hours. Soft drinks are included, but the hard stuff is extra. Classes are $55 per person (tax and tip extra) or you could get all four weeks for $200 and save yo’self twenty buckaroos. Make your reservation by calling up Chef Pat and crew at (203) 956-7134.
Here’s the lineup:
WHEN: First four Saturdays in October from 11:00am – 1:00pm
Sat, 10/3: Long Pasta (Pappardelle, Spaghetti, Tagliatelle)
Sat, 10/10: Enriched Pasta (Gnocchi and Cavatelli)
Sat, 10/17: Stuffed Pasta (Ravioli and Cappelletti)
Sat, 10/24: Short Pasta (Gemelli and Fusilli)
You can also stop by Bar Sugo for a series of wine classes that will take you through Sicily and Tuscany. Teaching you all about the wine will be Megan Pascarella along with a special guest for each class. Classes are $55 and that includes the wine you’ll taste along with a carefully curated selection of artisan cheeses and house-cured meats from Chef Pat Pascarella. Here’s the info:
