A NOTE ABOUT VACCINATION STATUS:

As we dip our toe into in-person classes again, we are requiring that everyone who registers for our classes be fully-vaccinated by the date of class. (You will be asked to upload a photo of your vax card before class). This is meant to create a safe and relaxed, communal cooking environment for everyone.


School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

The Baking Basics

Holiday Candy Workshop

Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults


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.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

FOR ONE-TIME CLASSES:

All classes are non-refundable. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class. If you need to reschedule with less than 72 hours notice, please reach out directly to Home Cooking New York: [email protected]


FOR BOOTCAMP CLASSES:

Boot camp registrations are not refundable, but are transferable to another boot camp if you give us more than 1 weeks’ notice if you need to change your start date.


What can I do if I have to miss a class during a Boot Camp?

We understand that finding 6 consecutive weeks on your calendar to book a Boot Camp can be challenging, but because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer you a make-up class if you cannot make one or more of the classes. As a consolation we have two options, for those who need to miss a class within a Boot Camp series:

1) Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or

2) Opt for our "Plan B" program:

You are welcome to attend any of our classes that still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats, as opposed to giving you a seat in a future class that would otherwise have been paid for. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing)

Plan B does not have any expiration date; just be in touch with me directly when you find a class that works for you.

Erica is the best! She makes the class fun and funny and so flowy! We had such incredibly delicious cooked vegetables. I came out with a different appreciation for cooking vegetables 5 different ways.
How to Cook Vegetables (Properly)
Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/23/2019
I attended this class as someone who does cook regularly and has made cool things very occasionally, but was not confident in my knife skills and wanted to try improving or learning new skills with someone who was able to check my work. This class was that and much more! Erica was funny, friendly, attentive (she does pay attention to how you cut, even when there's 7 of you!) and easily answered all of my questions. I'm a cheap person but I honestly felt this was worth the money and you learn so much (and you get to eat!!). And the format was very friendly-- I can see how it's a good way to meet new people. Anyway, highly recommend.

it would be a 5+-star review if we received the recipes the instructor said he would be sending. Everything was delicious, and I hadn't worked with most of the vegetables we prepared. I had a great time.

I totally enjoyed my experience learning from John. I felt at ease in the small class environment and had the chance to ask questions. I was floored from how simple the techniques were. I highly recommend this class!
