The school, located in Greenwich Village, is owned by Abigail Hitchcock. It has been open for almost 13 years, something of a record in Manhattan.

The cooking classes in in this school offer a unique experience of learning in a working restaurant kitchen. (If there’s a sudden rush, students stand back!) There are also tours in various New York City neighborhoods—Chinatown Shop and Cook is a perennially sold-out favorite. In another popular cooking class, One Night Stand, the student/chef works with Abby to plan, cook and serve family and friends a meal at the restaurant.

Notes:
We don't have any age restrictions on either our classes or events. We take people of all ages, but those under 21 years of age are not allowed to consume wine or any alcoholic beverages.

Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Thai Ingredients

Chef Roger, was very knowledgeable. He gave us clear directions as we prepped and shared information about the ingredients we were using and their origins and importance in each dish. I appreciated the one-on-one attention he provided and walked away with a few helpful knife tips that I will be using at home. My husband and I really enjoyed this Shop and Cook Class: Thai Cuisine.

Food was delicious and eating in the dark certainly improves one's sense of taste and sound. Very well organized and executed. We appreciated that our dietary restrictions were so easily accommodated. The only con was that we were expecting to get out of there in 2 hours (at 10:30pm after starting at 8:30pm) but ultimately left about 11:45pm.

Abigail was great! We made excellent pasta and plan to return for another evening. The class ran over - we ended at 11 instead of 10:30. Not a big deal on Friday night, but it could have been inconvenient during the week.

Best experience ever!!! It was exciting and a truly experience being able to figure out what were you eating and how to get around the table and restaurant with your eyes covered. Totally recommended, eyes closed :)

A very cool experience. Abigail did a fantastic job of igniting the other 4 senses with fantastic local food and paired wine. Highly recommended, and can’t wait to try it again with friends

Pros: It was a very nice way to spend a Friday evening. I loved that we did not rush through things and got to enjoy the process. Cooking tips from Abigail were great as well. The whole time you get to drink unlimited wine which is considered a plus by a lot of people. We started at 7 pm and left the place closer to midnight. Cons: When I was purchasing the class, the menu was completely different and more exciting and had more courses. We only were shown how to do the simplest things like cutting stuff, and did not get to learn how to make the sauces which are very important. The good thing here is that we were promised all the recipes via email - still waiting on that though. My husband also did not like the fact that for the main course everything (filet mignon, brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes) was kind of thrown in together, and this prevented from tasting each item separately. We think it would have been nicer to lay everything out on a large plate. Overall, we still greatly enjoyed this experience and are planning on doing it again. Perhaps, we will not buy the tickets too far in advance (I bought mine during Christmastime for March 1). There were couples who bought their tickets just a couple weeks ahead and they knew what the new menu was.
