WHAT TO EXPECT
Welcome! Home Cooking New York offers intimate hands-on cooking classes at our SoHo cooking school. Each 2 1/2 hour class is $100 and has a maximum of 10 students. You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down dinner at the end of class with your classmates. We are BYOB.
ARE YOUR CLASSES HANDS-ON?
Yes, our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table. We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.
“COMMUNITY CLASS”: $25
What to Eat & How to Shop
Before you can even begin to cook, you must choose your groceries, wisely. This 2-hour seminar led by HCNY founder Jennifer Clair will help guide you through the supermarket, aisle by aisle. The link above will highlight the full curriculum. Next class: Tuesday, June 7 at 6pm.
PRIVATE COOKING CLASSES
We are also available to teach private classes at our school or in your home! Please visit our private classes page for detailed information.
CULINARY BOOT CAMPS
If you are seeking an immersive culinary education, we recommend our Boot Camp program. Each 4- week course (meeting once a week) offers you a chance to “go deep” with a supportive group of classmates. Weekly cooking assignments provide incentive to practice in your own kitchen.
We have 3 curriculums to get you started: Culinary Boot Camp I and Culinary Boot Camp II (open to all), and Global Flavors Boot Camp, which explores far-flung ingredients, ingredients, techniques. There are no pre-requisites for any of our boot camp programs.
