Best of New York 2007 • Fun

Best One-Day Introductory Cooking Class

  • The New School—Cooking 101 One-Day Workshop

    131 W. 23rd St.; 212-255-4141

    In an easygoing five-hour Sunday workshop, Michael Krondl teaches the bare basics of cooking from the New School’s stainless-steel teaching kitchen located at the Inn on 23rd Street. Twelve students learn the knife skills and recipe-decoding necessary to prepare sustenance like roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, vinaigrettes, guacamole, and banana-bread muffins. Krondl answers off-the-cuff questions with authority (“You only need two good blades: a chef’s knife and a paring knife”) and powers through just enough material to give students confidence to put away the takeout menus ($170; $35 materials fee).
