Cooking Classes in Manhattan

Does anyone have recommendations for where to take cooking classes in Manhattan? Just looking for a fun learning experience with food to enjoy afterwards, so doesn't have to be super professional. Thanks!

    ICE and French Culinary both offer really informal and interesting recreational cooking courses that all culminate in dining on your shared creations with beverages afterwards.
    They fill up fast so some planning is essential.

      I totally reccomend ICE. I go every year and every year have a great experience. Sit down meal afterwards with beer and wine and they let you take leftovers home. Met some really cool people too.

        I've taken multiple classes at the Astor Center and all have been excellent (and the meal afterwards delicious)

          +1 for ICE, I had a great experience there- it was a class specializing in mushroom dishes taught by Chef Peter Berley. Chef Berley was an excellent teacher, the class was a lot of fun and the Chef shared a lot of knowledge with the students, even though we were weekend culinary warriors who watch too many episodes of chopped.
