What you'll learn in this food tours class:

Join Astoria native and chef Michael Cokkinos on a tasting tour of one of New York’s most vibrant food paradises, from Greek and Italian to Mexican and Asian. Visit local ethnic specialty stores, fresh fish mongers, quality butchers, old-school bakers, and bustling produce markets. Sample artisan cheeses, olives, and other mouthwatering delicacies, while learning how to shop and prepare a meal around the freshest ingredients. Culminate the experience with a hands-on demonstration and sampling of some Greek signature dishes and a tasting of small production wines at a local boutique wine store. One food tasting and shopping trip to Astoria and you will go back again and again.

Attendees should expect a modest food consumption expense and subway cost not included in course fee. No same-day registration. Bringing an insulated shopping bag is highly recommended.
