2. Fromage à Trois
Fromage à Trois on Cape Cod provides handcrafted mozzarella, burrata cheese, and pasta to farmers markets and food stores around the area. They also offer hands-on pasta making classes! The classes begin with a demonstration on how to make pasta dough, followed by students making their own dough. Students make a variety of pasta with help from a pasta expert, and then package them to take home. The class concludes with a sit-down dinner of fresh pasta and wine! You can sign up for their open class or book a private class of six. Either way, this pasta-making class is worth experiencing.
