Try something new at Fromage à Trois: Fromage À Trois – Dennis
Who says pasta can’t be both delicious and organic? At Fromage à Trois The West Village Pasta and Cheese Shoppe in West Dennis, Kathleen Kadlik makes a variety of handcrafted cheeses, sauces and pastas that not only taste good but are made with organic eggs and flour imported from Italy. Kadlik, who graduated from The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, is passionate about her work and committed to “clean, real food.” Her pastas and sauces are great for a meal with friends and family and make for tasteful gifts too!
The shop offers a variety of Kadlik’s homemade pastas, including fettuccini, lasagna and pappardelle. The staff also makes marinara, pesto and Gorgonzola cream sauces and cheeses such as Mozzarella, Burrata and more. Visitors can also order pasta salads or combine ingredients to create their own custom dish. “My favorite dish changes a lot,” Kadlik says, “but right now I really like the broccoli rabe with the sausage-and ricotta-stuffed shells.”
The shop hosts weekly pasta-making classes where Kadlik teaches attendees, step by step, how to prepare various hand-shaped pastas like Fettuccini and Farfalle. They call it hands-on training for a reason. “Pasta making is very tactile,” Kadlik says, adding that to discern when the ingredients in pasta have reached just the right moisture or temperature levels, one must “have a good touch.” At the end, the group enjoys the dinner they’ve prepared with a glass of wine.
A South Yarmouth resident, Kadlik says her motto is “Try new things and eat real food,” and at Fromage à Trois she offers her customers the opportunity to do just that. “Food is about making memories,” she says. “When you sit around a table, whether it’s a holiday meal or a meal with someone special, you remember it.” –Allyson Plessner
