The school, located in Greenwich Village, is owned by Abigail Hitchcock. It has been open for almost 13 years, something of a record in Manhattan.

The cooking classes in in this school offer a unique experience of learning in a working restaurant kitchen. (If there’s a sudden rush, students stand back!) There are also tours in various New York City neighborhoods—Chinatown Shop and Cook is a perennially sold-out favorite. In another popular cooking class, One Night Stand, the student/chef works with Abby to plan, cook and serve family and friends a meal at the restaurant.

Notes:
We don't have any age restrictions on either our classes or events. We take people of all ages, but those under 21 years of age are not allowed to consume wine or any alcoholic beverages.

Chef and waitresses were so accommodating. They explained everything right before entering. Service was great! Loved the end and was so excited to see how the restaurant looked at the end. Really impressed!

I would have liked - and expected - to make all the dishes for the price. It should be clear in the overview you make them together as a group. The chef was knowledgeable and fun to work with. We still haven’t received the recipes for everything we made. Not having them printed and ready to take home for each of us feels like a miss.

Abbey was knowledgeable and informative. She explained how and where to buy fresh fish. What to look for and how to make decisions about whether to buy farmed or wild. Gave us some really good tips and guidelines. She showed us several techniques of how to prepare and cook fish. And everything was delicious! (But I'm still not a fan of Mackerel

Chef Roger, was very knowledgeable. He gave us clear directions as we prepped and shared information about the ingredients we were using and their origins and importance in each dish. I appreciated the one-on-one attention he provided and walked away with a few helpful knife tips that I will be using at home. My husband and I really enjoyed this Shop and Cook Class: Thai Cuisine.

Food was delicious and eating in the dark certainly improves one's sense of taste and sound. Very well organized and executed. We appreciated that our dietary restrictions were so easily accommodated. The only con was that we were expecting to get out of there in 2 hours (at 10:30pm after starting at 8:30pm) but ultimately left about 11:45pm.
