Cooking and/or wine tasting class in NYC?

I am looking for a reasonably priced class in NYC. Already did the OTTO wine class (twice) and thought it was great and reasonably priced. Can't seem to find anything else for under $100. Anyone know of anything good out there or a place I can look?

  1. the New School had a great wine tasting class. Im not sure if they still offer it, but it's worth checking their evening school schedule

    1. ICE has a wide range of wine classes. Almost all of them are under $100. If you're interested in sharpening your knife skills (pun intended), those classes are excellent and are under $100. Peruse the on-line catalogue, and will find some cooking and baking courses for under $100.

      Vino, the wine store associated with itrulli, runs wine classes. Prices range from $65 - $105. I

        Agree with ICE - have taken many cooking classes there over the years - -you work your butt off , as it is hands on but the meal at the end is fantastic the wine flows very freely, you can take leftovers home and you learn alot.
        The only disappointing class for me was the turkish one the instructor at the time didn't seem to care much. The steakhouse ones, NYC restaurant favorites, Italian ones, mediterranean all were VERY GOOD.

      2. ICE is the way to go! I took a cannoli class there which was super fun. And their wine classes are great, as RGR said.

        I believe Artisanal also done wine/cheese classes.

        1. I.C.E ROCKS...I go there alllll the time!

            I took the knife skills class at ICE (after many years of cooking and thinking I knew what I was doing.) Changed my life.

          2. From The Strong Buzz:

            The restaurant South Gate (chef is Kerry Heffernan) is doing a series of cooking classes. This Saturday, January 31st, it's the making of hand-crafted cheese. Time: 3-5 p.m. Cost: $35pp.

            "It will be led by South Gate artisan cheesemaker and executive sous chef Nate Eckhaus, who will take you through the secrets to making rich ricotta, crème fraiche, burrata, and mozzarella. You’ll learn how to make these cheeses in your home kitchen and how to incorporate them into everyday cooking."
