An exclusive opportunity to learn from the city’s masters of haute cuisine.
Insider Exclusive Offer:
Most people will never know what makes the ragù at A Voce so good, or learn the secret ingredients in François Payard’s family recipes, but if you can spare the weekend of April 28 and 29, along with $1,395, you will. The fourth annual New York Culinary Experience, which takes place at Soho’s International Culinary Center, is a two-day hands-on event where you’ll create meals and dine with more than 30 prominent chefs.
Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen, for instance, will lead a class on making mozzarella, pickles, and sausage by hand. After the tastings, you’ll take home the leftovers (that is, if there are any leftovers). Rebecca Charles will show you how to prepare her famous oysters from Pearl Oyster Bar; and Jean-Georges Vongerichten will teach a course on how to use chilies—both mild and hot—in an appetizer, a fish dish, a meat dish, and a dessert. There will be an auction of a three-night getaway and dinner for two at the bed-and-breakfast and Michelin-starred restaurant Maison Bru, in Eygalières, France, which also includes a cooking lesson from restaurant owner and chef Wout Bru, a private tour of a nearby olive grove and vineyard, and more.
Tickets to the New York Culinary Experience include all classes, breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail reception each day, and a portion of the proceeds go toward scholarships for culinary students. Tickets are limited, so get them before they sell out.
