What you'll learn in this food tours class:

Join us as we tour NYC's largest and most beloved farmers market: the Union Square Greenmarket.

We'll wander through the farm stands, sampling and shopping for local produce and farm-made products to fill our shopping basket. Along the way, we'll discuss:
  • What makes something "local"
  • Why "organic" is not the most important label at the market
  • What is currently in season and at its peak of flavor
  • What are the most important products to buy at the market
  • Tips for choosing the best produce
After 45 minutes of tasting and shopping (and sipping local hot apple cider if it's particularly chilly!), we'll head downtown via subway to our cooking school in SoHo where we'll prepare a full, seasonally-inspired lunch to enjoy together. 

A typical menu consists of a local cheese + charcuterie + fruit platter (for nibbling on while we cook), a hearty seasonal vegetable and local grain dish, and fresh or roasted seasonal fruit served with local creme fraiche.

*Vegetarians can be easily accommodated.

Where: 
We'll meet at the NW corner of the Union Square Greenmarket (corner of Union Square West and East 17th, in front of Pret a Manger cafe)

Duration: 3 hours

Includes: 
Farmers market samples, a cooking class back at our school, and a full sit-down lunch

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.

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.

We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Very good one suggestion would be to try and provide some written material on what was done to take with you. However I would recommend taking the class it was fun and informative.
