(252 Reviews)

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 Fish

Abigail was a patient and amazing guide, showing us the ins and outs of how to pick fresh seafood. The cooking of the fish was also an amazing experience as we were able to prepare a meal in the kitchen of her restaurant. The entire experience was extremely enjoyable and I would recommend this for everyone.

Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Thai Ingredients

Chef Abigail Hitchcock was just wonderful. She showed me some of her favorite places in Chinatown to shop for Thai ingredients, fish, and veggies. She has so much experience there and I, who am relatively new to the city, would have no way of sorting all the options out like that. Then we went to her restaurant and spent the afternoon cooking in her professional kitchen before her first service started. I learned a ton and she is funny and charming and easy to be around. And the food was amazing. I take a lot of cooking classes in NYC and this was hands down the best yet. I will be back for more!

Chef Roger was great - patient, funny, knowledgeable. There was plenty of time for questions which he answered fully. It was a really fun class and I felt that my husband and I learned a lot. There were a lot of recipes to get through and I can understand how 7-8 students were needed. But I felt that the restaurant's kitchen can really accommodate only 6 or 7, excluding the chef. Overall, this was a great experience!

Still waiting for the chef to email the recipes. I especially enjoyed shopping for the fish in Chinatown although the walk back to the restaurant was a hike in the rain. Learned how to filet a fish. Chef Roger was very engaging & informative. Didn’t like all the garnish on the fish.

Dinner in the Dark

I went there for diner in the dark. Pros: - food is really good - it is a fun experience Cons: - Omg the wait between each dish is soooooo looong. Seriously, starting at 7:00pm, at 9:00pm we only had the very first dish. - no big surprise in the plate, I was hoping for more creativity. I don't really see what is the point of serving expected dished / ingredients. Only the palate cleanser was a surprise (that's just one thing) - they make a big deal of wearing the mask at all time. I don't think that is necessary

Great class! The teacher was very passionate and friendly, which made the class a lot of fun. Plus she was also very knowledgable about butchering and cooking in general, which is also a must! I would definitely recommend it to a friend!

We really enjoyed the class and feel ready to make sushi at home. The atmosphere is fun - I liked that it was in a restaurant and maintained the restaurant feel as we learnt the various ways Abby had planned for us to make sushi and as we enjoyed eating it. Thank you Abby. I would definitely come for another class
