Take a tour of New York City's largest and most beloved farmers market followed by a cooking class at my SoHo-based cooking school, Home Cooking New York. We'll meet at the tip of the Union Square Greenmarket, where I'll guide you through the market stalls, teeming with local produce and artisan-made foods. Together, we explore what is in season and how to choose the best produce from among the mountains available, all while we sample foods and shop for the ingredients we'll need to prepare lunch together. After 45 minutes of touring and shopping, we'll head downtown via subway to SoHo, home to my cooking school where I'll lead you in a cooking class, using the seasonal foods we've collected to prepare a full, seasonally-inspired lunch to enjoy together. A typical menu consists of a local cheese + charcuterie + fruit platter (for nibbling on while you cook), a hearty seasonal vegetable and local grain dish, and fresh or roasted seasonal fruit served with homemade crème anglaise. Come hungry and curious!
I love everything about food. In 2002, I founded Home Cooking New York, a recreational cooking school for home cooks in downtown New York City. Previously, I was a food editor at Martha Stewart Living and The Wall Street Journal. I am also the host of the cooking podcast, "Kitchen Radio," (take a listen before the tour!) and the author of "Six Basic Cooking Techniques: Culinary Essentials for the Home Cook." Wandering around the farmers market is one of my top 10 favorite things to do, and I make sure to visit a local market wherever I am traveling, to get a real feel for the community. Come join me! On occasion, Erica Wides, a well-loved chef-instructor at the school, will lead this tour. She's been teaching professionally for 20 years, and is the host of the web comedy series, "Funny People Making Food."
Full sit-down lunch will be served at the end. Appetizers will be made and passed around when we return from the…
Recipes I'll email you a packet of recipes based on the meal we cook together.
We'll begin our trip by meeting at the tip of the Union Square Greenmarket (NW corner of Union Square West and East 17th; in front of Pret A Manger) and then journey together one stop via subway to SoHo, home to my cooking school, Home Cooking New York.
