What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

This class is designed to be the end-all-be-all for your seasoning questions.

We cover all of the following, and cook up a variety of different dishes that incorporate these techniques:

  • ​Identifying every herb and spice available to you in the supermarket 
  • When to choose herbs vs. spices
  • Food pairings (what herbs/spices pair well with what meats, vegetables, starches, fruit)
  • Medicinal properties
  • Where to buy
  • How to store

To highlight these teachings, we'll make:

  • Spiced rice pilaf
  • Indian lentil dal with aromatic butter
  • Fattoush (a Middle Eastern chopped salad with spiced pita chips and fresh herbs, and a Persian kookoo, a baked herb and egg dish)

Important:

  • Please reach out to CourseHorse for any dietary restrictions.
  • Make sure to ring the outside buzzer, even if the front door is open, so we know you are arriving!

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.

My husband and I took this class together and enjoyed it very much. We've incorporated new spices in our cooking since this class and will continue to apply these techniques to our cooking adventures.

The class was fun and very informative. Erica did an excellent job subbing in! I love her style of teaching. She brings lot of years of experience, especially cooking tips and tricks for cooking in the home.

The class was fantastic! Erica, our teacher, was a wealth of information and so easy to work with. I will absolutely be taking more classes!
Seasoning 101: How to Use Herbs + Spices
Reviewed by Laura C. on 3/25/2019
This was exactly the kind of course I've been looking for literally for years. I am already making one of the dishes and using the information to do what I've wanted to be able to do which is take the basic idea of a recipe but then change the spices around and make something new...granted, I'm literally doing that now so I don't know how it will come out, but I have confidence! If there's a second version of this class where we learn *even more* more things about spices and herbs I would love to go to that too. Great teacher, extremely responsive to everyone. Deliciousness. What more could you want?
