COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Top Chef Queening and Holiday Dreaming

Info Cook Space

unnamed-1.jpg

Excuse us while we indulge in a little gleeful gloating.

Our beautiful, badass and beyond talented founding Culinary Director, Nini Nguyen, would never toot her own horn….so we’re doing it for her! She’s one of the extraordinarily talented chefs on the upcoming season of Top Chef and we could not be more excited for and inspired by her (already circling December 6th for a premiere party for the ages). Seize your chance to learn from this dynamo in her upcoming Vietnamese Cuisine and Brunch Breakdown classes next month. 

This NYC cold snap has us doubling up on wooly socks and daydreaming of twinkly lights and holiday parties. What could be more festive than building a beautiful meal in one of our private classes, before sitting down to enjoy it family style in our gorgeous dining room. For inquiries, shoot us a note at info@cookspacebrooklyn.com (act fast, before our calendar fills up for the season!).

In the meantime, we’ll just be here, prepping our winter coats with buttermilk biscuits and fried chicken. Sweater weather never tasted so good. 

Have a happy (and warm) weekend everyone.

The brisk NYC air had us craving our comforters on this morning's commute. But when we're not burrowing into our scarves to shield us from the chill (and, maybe, the news), we're seeking satisfaction at the stove, indulging in this season of slow and low cookingand feasting with family. Because though making a meal, particularly for a crowd, can sometimes feel like serious business, the best part of cooking is the joy it generates - both on the plate, and in the process.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | New Month, New Mindset

Info Cook Space

unnamed-1.jpg

September, we hardly knew ye. Though it blew by like a tornado, this past month has still managed to pack in the requisite heinous yet, sadly, wholly unsurprising exhibitions of political scandal and injustice, a trend which shows no sign of fading any time soon. We're hoping the advent of a new month will breathe new life into our collective capacity for bridging boundaries, and inspire new, creative means of community activism. We’re counting on it.
 

So here's to the future, and the upcoming holiday season, a favorite of ours here at Cook Space. For us, providing a space for connection, community and fabulous food, for the private celebrations of families, friends and colleagues, is the ultimate privilege. For those looking to host a gathering at our gorgeous skylit studio, please reach out to us at info@cookspacebrooklyn.com

As cooler climes sweep in to the city, we’re looking forward to more moments of “making” - making memories, making meals and making conversation - just a few of our favorite kitchen pass-times. If Summer is for friends, then Fall is for families and, for us, there’s no better space to gather with loved ones than around the stove, the countertop, or even in front of an open fridge for late night collaborations on ice cream based creations.

 

With a titillating line up of new cookbooks being released this fall, we’re relaunching  our own Cook the Book series, diving back into old classics and new favorites for inspiration, all while dancing around the dining room to fresh jams from a fallen icon. Happy Weekend everyone!
