Gnocchi is a potato based pasta with a light, airy texture that makes it irresistible. When paired with the sauce of your choice, the full potato flavor of the pasta comes to life. While making homemade pasta seems like such a hassle, did you know gnocchi is really easy to make? It is the perfect holiday dish for your holiday gatherings with friends and family.

This event is sponsored by AARP NH and hosted by The Creative Feast*. Join chef Liz Barbour on December 21 at 1 pm for this beautifully delicious cooking demonstration. Liz will take you step-by-step through the recipes of a classic potato gnocchi and a Parisian baked gnocchi. Both recipes are easy to follow and reproduce on your own to the delight of your family and friends.

Chef Liz Barbou of Hollis, NH built her cooking career in a variety of Boston's catering and restaurant settings. After starting her family, she reentered the food world as a cooking instructor with Liz Barbour's Creative Feast.
