Brewing beer, curing meat, or making cheese?

Collecting NYC Food Experiences For a Gift...

mc22 Sep 26, 2013 06:48 PM

I'm trying to put together a gift for my fiancee's birthday. The idea is to really take advantage of the city but also to do some cooking classes since we are about to get a ton of new kitchen stuff (yay! exciting!).

I was thinking cheese at Murray's, wine at Otto, a class at ICE (any recommendations?)

I'd be up for fun food tours or other experiences too! Would love recommendations of specific classes or activities that people on here have enjoyed.

    The "Old World Wines, New World Cheeses" class at Murray's was a lot of fun.

    There's often cocktail classes at Ma Peche that sound interesting. Haven't been yet, though.

      Eataly has a cooking school located next to thier wine shop on the south end of building. I am not sure of details but call or go there to inquire.

        The cheese classes at Murray's are always fun.

        Friends have loved the classes at Pizza a Casa and the Meat Hook/Brooklyn Kitchen (pig butchering).
