  • Crisp Potato Galettes Cooked in Duck Fat 
  • Quick Duck Stock 

 Please reach out to CourseHorse for any dietary restrictions.


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.

Refund Policy


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]


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.

I loved this class .. I would highly recommend it to everyone. The only thing that I wish there was more or was a hands on experience. The chef did most of the hands on work.

We really enjoyed the class but wish there was a little more hands-on cooking. Otherwise, chef was skilled and fun and he taught us how to make delicious duck. I would take a class with him again if we were able to prepare more of the dishes.

The "How to Cook Duck" was AMAZING! John was a fantastic teacher and I really want him to teach an advanced Duck course. The food delicious! I wish there had been enough for leftovers. I highly recommend this class!
