Abigail Hitchcock

Teaches at Abigail's Kitchen (formerly Camaje)

Abby Hitchcock grew up on Long Island’s rural East End, known for its fishing and farming (fresh bay scallops, stripers, flounder, farmstands, and pick-your-own strawberries/pumpkins/apples). From her mother she learned to love simple fresh local fare and from her father, an amateur chef who enjoys preparing American and ethnic feasts, a love of reading menus and preparing exotic fare. But it wasn’t until she attended university in England, where she was placed in a "self-catering flat" (shop, cook and feed yourself) that Abby suddenly found that food was her passion: shopping for it, cooking it, eating it, researching it. She began poking about in the greengrocer’s and butcher’s shops and preparing amazing repasts for her English flat mates (happily eating beans on toast)—a New York brunch or an American Thanksgiving for 12— in her tiny kitchenette. After she earned her degree in botany, she returned to the States and enrolled in Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School (now The Institute of Culinary Education). With her blue ribbon cooking diploma in hand, Abby went on to work at The Tea Box at Takashimaya in New York, at Vong in London and at the BBC’s Good Food Magazine. She has been a private chef, worked at Martha Stewart Living television and run her own catering company. Perhaps it was her Botany degree that led to Abby's love of the science of cooking (why do onions make you tear?) and to her three years as a recipe development chef, which she occasionally still dabbles in. She eventually settled down as part owner, then sole owner, of CAMAJE bistro in Greenwich Village. It has been open for almost 13 years, something of a record in Manhattan.

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.

Pros: It was a very nice way to spend a Friday evening. I loved that we did not rush through things and got to enjoy the process. Cooking tips from Abigail were great as well. The whole time you get to drink unlimited wine which is considered a plus by a lot of people. We started at 7 pm and left the place closer to midnight. Cons: When I was purchasing the class, the menu was completely different and more exciting and had more courses. We only were shown how to do the simplest things like cutting stuff, and did not get to learn how to make the sauces which are very important. The good thing here is that we were promised all the recipes via email - still waiting on that though. My husband also did not like the fact that for the main course everything (filet mignon, brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes) was kind of thrown in together, and this prevented from tasting each item separately. We think it would have been nicer to lay everything out on a large plate. Overall, we still greatly enjoyed this experience and are planning on doing it again. Perhaps, we will not buy the tickets too far in advance (I bought mine during Christmastime for March 1). There were couples who bought their tickets just a couple weeks ahead and they knew what the new menu was.

I hate to leave a bad rating but this is an expensive class and I do not feel it is worth the price. Not only did we not cook anything, we didn't really learn much either. The class starts off with the instructor telling us personal anecdotes for an hour with very few ramen or cooking facts peppered in, followed by the students chopping an excessive amount of ramen toppings for way too long (and peeling about 2 dozen hard boiled eggs - I hate to say it, but it felt more like we were helping the restaurant prep than participating in a hands on cooking class). Once that's over we were lined up to put what we want in our ramen in a pot to be heated up. The "ramen broths" were premade by the instructor and not all that appetizing but also not particularly reminiscent to ramen. Instead of ramen bowls we were handed extremely shallow bowls, overflowing with our assembly line ramen, that we did not in fact cook. Overall, extremely disappointed, and not any closer to knowing how to make ramen than I was before the class.

Chef Abigail Hitchcock was just wonderful. She showed me some of her favorite places in Chinatown to shop for Thai ingredients, fish, and veggies. She has so much experience there and I, who am relatively new to the city, would have no way of sorting all the options out like that. Then we went to her restaurant and spent the afternoon cooking in her professional kitchen before her first service started. I learned a ton and she is funny and charming and easy to be around. And the food was amazing. I take a lot of cooking classes in NYC and this was hands down the best yet. I will be back for more!

Chef Roger was great - patient, funny, knowledgeable. There was plenty of time for questions which he answered fully. It was a really fun class and I felt that my husband and I learned a lot. There were a lot of recipes to get through and I can understand how 7-8 students were needed. But I felt that the restaurant's kitchen can really accommodate only 6 or 7, excluding the chef. Overall, this was a great experience!

The class met and exceeded my expectations. Abigail (the instructor) was helpful, informative and really provided a great learning experience. She explained and showed how to select fish properly. Then we headed back to the restaurant to cook. The setup was perfect. We were provided all of the ingredients and were instructed on how to prepare the meals. Abigail and other restaurant staff helped supervise and showed up the proper techinques for cutting, zesting and mixing. Then we all headed to the kitchen to cook. This class is perfect for any individual trying to get some experience in cooking fish. The food turned out great and will definitely be using the recipes and techniques in everyday life. Would recommend this class for singles, couples, mother/daughter outings and girl events.

This class was cancelled at the last minute and I joined another class Good Summer Grub by the same provider Camaje! It's a quaint little restaurant with a homey feel, good service, good food and the executive chef Abby Hitchcock is knowledgeable and proficient as a chef. She gave us good information and instruction on cooking in a professional kitchen. We did prep work for the meal we eventually ate like chopping onions, shallots, garlic, making biscuit dough, cutting wax beans and learning knife techniques. She talked about spices, where she buys her produce, meats, cheeses, etc. We did not get to cook our own meal. She did all the cooking of the appetizer, main dish and dessert. The kitchen is small and the class of 5 people made it crowded as the chef on duty for that evening was cooking simultaneously for the dinner customers as we had our class. Nonetheless it was a good learning experience of a working professional restaurant. It's not an easy business but Camaje has been there 18 years, so, Bravo!

I learned properly how to hold and work with a long knife, in addition to the proper mixing of ingredients.I liked how Abbie took random questions we raised, along with her patience and real hands on. However, We began about 40 minutes late, after us having to rush to make the class in time.No snacks were offered to tie us over, and water was offered about 35 minutes later during this hot wait ,in 90 degree weather. We were later iffered a gkass f wine, as well. There were some nasty interruptions on the part of 1 or 2 people during part of our time there, making for an unpleasant , uncomfortable surrounding. As for the menu itself, I was pleased with the outcome, delicious lobster rolls, potato salad and blue berry cake. I was just surprised we didn't perhaps add a side cucumber, dill salad or some green veggie or beets. Annie was, in spite of the interruptions, a kind, helpful mentor who delivered her product and expertise as best she could..review by J.P.

Although the teacher was very good, and very knowledgeable, there was not a lot of hands-on involvement. I only diced 2 tomatoes, 2 zucchini, and half an onion, and chopped some cilantro. Thats it. And one of the dishes, the spinach and potato samosas, was left out of the lesson, even though it was on the description of what I enrolled for. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wanted an Indian cooking class.

There are lots of great things to say about this class staring with Abby, the chef/owner of Camaje. She is a wonderful teacher that obviously loves teaching and cooking. There was lots of useful information and I wish I had brought a notepad with me. The menu she planned was so delicious and we loved taking part in its preparation. If you go during a cold day though, make sure to take a sweater because the restaurant and event the kitchen are pretty cold. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn good basic skills. And don't be afraid to ask questions. Abby is a wealth of information.

This course was not as advertised. There was no actual instruction. There were bowls of sprinkles, colored sugar, Oreos and other decorative candies on the communal table. You were each given 6 already prepared cupcakes and then given a bowl of icing per couple to color with food coloring. Chef Abby did verbally give her icing recipe, and a paper copy to take home. But, there is no actual baking done. We all expected this to be a learning experience of baking and especially decorating techniques. Aside from the one glass of wine included in the price it was like a children's birthday party. Definitely not worth the $$$. And the cupcakes and icing were not that tasty. I wish I could say something positive, but honestly I can't think of a thing. Even the beginning was not very welcoming

When we arrived we were served tea / coffee / wine. Sitting at a long table in the dining area, Chef Abby taught us about different types of knives that cooks work with and passed examples around the table. We then moved over to a big cutting table that was still in the dining area of the restaurant (not in the kitchen) and practiced cutting many types of vegetables with a chef's knife. Because the restaurant is small, we could hear customers talking, which was a bit of a distraction, but it was a quiet night at the restaurant so it wasn't too bad. Finally Chef Abby showed us how to cut up some fruit. After that we sat down to eat gazpacho and fruit salad. Chef Abby was a great instructor, friendly and enthusiastic, and because of the small class size we all got lots of personal attention. Eat before you come to class, because by the time you get to eat it will be late and while the gazpacho served is good, you may not want that to be your only sustenance that night.

The Thanksgiving Sides Class at Camaje was fantastic! What's cool is that you're actually cooking in a working restaurant kitchen (small) and not only learning from the class, but also from what's going on around you. Class started with us getting a recipe overview from Chef Abby and then food prep. She taught us some very useful knife skills lessons and worked with us during the prep (very hands on) and answered any questions we had on technique, etc. We then went into the kitchen and created 5 delicious dishes, learning along the way. When the class was over, we sat down as a group and ate. Chef Abby joined us for dinner and conversation. Really enjoyed myself. It was nice to be in a small kitchen with a real chef, it felt very authentic.
