If, like us, you’ve been lamenting the latest updates to the never ending negative news cycle, you’ll be searching for a respite from the “rapid, dirty river of information coursing through us all day”.  Whether it’s the dumpster fire that is the Twitter-verse or Brexit blues  you’re looking to beat, it’s become clear that the best way to find health and happiness is through experiences - So, join us as we put down our phones, roll up our sleeves and get stuck into some truly delicious diversions.

OUR KIND OF DRESSING UP

As acid addicts, we plan to pour this anchovy-garlic dressing from one of our favorites, Gabby Hamilton, on everything (that is, unless we’ve already ramped up our dishes with the results from our Fermenting with Wild Ingredients Workshop next Saturday April 6th)

THE WOMEN WHO DRAW TOGETHER, DINE TOGETHER

How the illustrators behind Cachetejack share aesthetics and appetites.

EXPANDING HORIZONS, SHRINKING IMPACT

We love exploring foreign flavors in our Cook Space kitchen  (as evidence by our upcoming Spanish Tapas and Japanese Street Food classes) so we couldn’t be more thrilled to see companies big and small expanding travelers horizons while ensuring the local food traditions are sustained.

BAGEL-GATE BACKLASH

After this week's St Louis bagel slicing debacle, we’re even more psyched to embrace this breakfast staple the right way in our Bagel Baking class.

EATING FOR EARTH HEALTH

We’re all about nourishing your body with real, whole foods, so an approach to eating that’s better for people AND the planet? We’re sold.

TRADING FREE WEIGHTS FOR FINE WINE

Moving our bodies is always cathartic for us, but, with evidence that a glass ofred wine could provide the same benefits as an hour at the gym, we’re even more excited about our Wine Pairing class with David Sawyer on April 9th.

BUYING ART ON A BUDGET

This weekend marks the Spring sensation, the Affordable Art Fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion, exhibiting pieces of contemporary original art from local and international artists that won’t break the bank.

CRAVING COLOR

We’re celebrating Spring this Sunday at “Holi in the City: Festival of Colors Brunch Party”, the joyful festival enjoyed worldwide, inspiring friendship, inclusivity and the freedom to live vibrantly.

A TASTE FOR TEXTURE

One man’s ode to his favorite food mouth-feel (crispy-gone-soggy)

BUNNIES AND BEET-DYED EGGS

Easter is around the corner, and while we gear up for our sensational Easter Feast , who better to regale us with their favorite treats for the holiday than The Great British Bake Off alumnae Liam Charles and Tamal Ray


A PALATE FOR PLANET LOVE

While Bon Appetit implores you to go plastic free, we invite you to take your sexy sustainable self out for a special night at our Food Waste Feast.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | The Benefits of Bagels and Other Stories

Info Cook Space

cook-space-march-mood-bagels.jpg

Let’s face it, March can be a bit of a “meh” month. Be it because of the hangover from a fernet fueled February, the panic induced by a looming tax deadline or simply the inability to decide whether to don a turtleneck or a tank top on any given day, March is  a veritable strugglebus. Which is why we’re taking the time to work on being kinder to ourselves and each other, and are approaching April with a little more mindfulness (and a lot more major meals), treading with care as we navigate this transition from slush to (hopefully) Spring.

We hope that whatever closet you’re currently trapped in, trying to choose between fuzzy socks and flip flops, your weekend ahead is a healthy, happy and delicious one.


_

THE BENEFITS OF BAGELS

We’ve long extolled the many ways in which our favorite spherical breakfast (though, from our Donut Making Workshop you’ll know it’s a close race) makes the world a better place but here’s further proof you should join us for our Bagel Baking class.

HOW LEADERSHIP SHOULD LOOK

Just ten days after the horrifying events at mosques across New Zealand, the nation’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has taken action to ensure such a tragedy never occurs again. Brava.

EGG-HEADS ALL THE WAY

Whether we’re scouring the borough for them with Easter baskets in hand, or frying them up for brunch (or dinner, or snack…anytime really), we’ve pretty much always got eggs on the menu here at Cook Space. But if you’re still searching for a way to celebrate the day a special way, consider our Easter Feast on April 16th!

THE HARLEM HOT SPOT WE’LL HAPPILY HIT UP

We’re never ones to turn down a Fried Chicken Dinner, and there may be few better than those found at Charles’ Country Pan Fried Chicken on 132nd Street.

NEW MOON MAGNETISM

No matter how much we like to think we have a handle on things, we can admit we occasionally fall prey to the mayhem brought on by a Mercury in Retrograde. This past Wednesday marked the vernal equinox and, as we usher in a new astrological year, we’re looking toward our Women’s New Moon Intention Circle with The First House, to keep us a little more grounded, a little more sane, and a lot more connected through the new season to come.

THE NEWEST COOKBOOK IN OUR COLLECTION

Incorporating recipes from global powerhouses within the food world - from chef Eric Ripert to Ruth Reichl to Yotam Ottolenghi, 100 Most Jewish Foods is serving up some serious feels and much inspiration for our upcoming Jewish Comfort Food class.

WHEN IT COMES TO DIET, IS MORE ACTUALLY LESS?

New research suggests modern generations haven’t adapted biologically or psychologically to the quick and easy satiating options available in abundance, making the modern diet a greater cause of death and disease than either alcohol or tobacco.

ONE WOMAN’S JOURNEY TO WELLNESS +

On this week’s Second Life podcast, Sophia Roe discusses her love of cooking and her journey to true self-care, and how the bridge between the two has shaped her life irrevocably

WHAT’S NEXT IN OUR NETFLIX QUEUE

If our upcoming Japanese Street Food class is anything to go by, we love a good curbside chow down, and cannot wait for the new Chef’s Table spinoff centered all around Street Food.

THE COMEBACK WE’RE CHEERING FOR

After two devastating hurricanes, Puerto Rico is rebuilding itself with the help of chefs, farmers and food entrepreneurs.

CANDY WITH A KICK

As if we need an excuse to combine two of our favorite things, the creator of Jelly Belly is blending sugar and CBD in a new cannabis infused candy - for a full multi-course menu to get you feeling quite alright, join us May 16th for our Cooking with CBD class in collaboration with our friends at Pot D’Huile.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Spring Pies and Fried Chicken Pies - St Patty's Priorities

Info Cook Space

cook-space-friday-feels-spring-pies-fried-chicken-st-pattys.jpg

This weekend marks the celebration of St Patrick’s Day, and while we’re looking forward to a classic Irish Sunday Roast, this warm weather (and yesterday’s Pi Day) has us daydreaming of some summery Americana fare. From our Southern Fried Chicken dinner to our All About Burgers bonanza, and even our June Lobster Boil , we’re primed for a finger-licking good season of sensational eats.

So whether you're guzzling green beer or trading in tinder for the latest "refridgerdating" trend, we wish you a delicious and delightful weekend.

NO SPACE FOR SIZE-ISM

It’s 2019, and yet the needs of plus-size restaurant patrons have yet to be met.

THE ART OF THE OUT OF OFFICE EMAIL

In a world in which email feels synonymous with productivity, the OOO email, while once pretentious seeming, is now a necessary levee against the infinite and perpetual tide of interruption to one’s personal time.

PROOF THAT FERNS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FIERCE

We’ve always had a passion for plants, and for using every inch to their maximum potential, both in our dishes and our decor. Now that previously less-loved ferns and “weeds” are finally getting their place at center stage, we’re even more excited about our Floral Workshop for Mother’s Day with one of our favorite fern magicians at Ferox Studio.

WASTE NOT WANT NOT

Gearing up for our Food Waste Feast on April 23rd has us looking into all the many ways we can reduce our impact on the environment, including these simple ways to limit the plastics we use in our kitchen.

MAYORAL METHODS TO CLIMATE-PROOF DOWNTOWN

As De Blasio puts it, “We don’t debate global warming in New York City. Not anymore.” His new outline details how he plans to beat the any oncoming climate challenges.

HOW “WELL-TH” HAS PUSHED OUR EATING TO THE EXTREMES

With a new “diet” or “cleanse” competing for superiority these days, those in the wellness industry who prioritize balance, such as Kathryn Budig, are vilified for their moderation.

THE BODY POSITIVITY WE’RE BINGE-WATCHING

Shrill”, the new series written by and starring one of our favorite comedians,Aidy Bryant, centers around a the writer, Annie, “a woman who wants to change her life…but not her body

THE CONFIDENCE CREATED FROM CHAOS IN THE KITCHEN

How one chef, Ashley Christensen, channeled her challenges in an industry she hopes to better, toward finding her culinary identity.

THE “MAD”NESS WE’RE CHEERING FOR

The Danes are looking to make a dent in the environmental impact of the food industry as the individuals behind MAD Symposium, a nonprofit of global food leaders dedicated to global change, look to open an academy to school chefs in sustainable and responsible business management. 

THE CO-WORKING SPACE FOR CULINARY CREATIVES

WeWork, the co-working community that took the world by storm in 2010, has now launched WeWork Food Labs, a much needed incubator for food startups in the wake of the Pilotworks shutdown.

WHAT’S ON OUR BOOKSHELF

Throughout this Women’s History Month we’re filling our calendars with some culture - from the city streets, to the comfort of our own homes. Here are some of the season’s top exhibitions celebrating women across the country, along with some reads by our favorite female writers.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Girl Power On and Off the Plate

Info Cook Space

cook-space-friday-feels-girl-power.jpg

Today is International Women’s Day, and we’re taking full advantage. We’re proud to be a female founded company, one that strives to support and lift up the courageous community of wonder women we’ve been so fortunate to be a small part of. 

 

So take today (and every damn day) to join us in celebration of the women in food, the women in friendship, the women absolutely everywhere who’s impetus it is to build one another up and support the empowerment and inclusion of all people through all walks of life.

PARTYING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD

We’re always down for a dance off (even though we may not win) and this International Women’s Day, we’ll happily get our groove on at the Ladies First Dance Party Celebrating Badass Women of Music in support of our beloved PP.

UGLY IS THE NEW PRETTY… AT LEAST ON THE PLATE

As we move (blissfully) away from inaccessible overly tweezered and hyper designed dishes, we’re going beyond the surface to find what really makes our food delicious, choosing flavor over frills.

A MAY FOR MEALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

In a city whose makeup is woven from each and every far-flung corner of the world, it makes sense that our favorite foods should be just as internationally inspired. This May, we’re taking our taste buds on a trip to some of our favorite food meccas, right in our very own studio kitchen - from Japanese Street Food to Spanish Tapas, our Spring is looking mighty spicy.

PASTRIES FOR EMPOWERMENT

Hot Bread Kitchen has long been one of our favorite culinary institutions built by women for women, dedicated to creating economic opportunity by training low income and immigrant women for careers in food. Support this incredible group while satiating your sweet tooth at Pastryland, a charity bake sale featuring some of the city’s primo pastry talent.

OUR NEW NEIGHBOR WE’RE WELCOMING

Our block is pretty well stocked with sensational dessert destinations (from Ample Hills to Four and Twenty Blackbirds) but we’re more than a little excited at the impending opening of Malai in our hood, an ice cream shop dedicated to the flavors of India (think Jaggery with Tamarind Caramel or Golden Turmeric….yeah)

WHY EQUALITY DOESN’T EQUAL EMASCULATION

Balance across the board isn’t simply a “women’s issue”. It’s a human one.

INTENTIONALITY IN ART

From our newly announced New Moon Intention Circle with The First House to our Planning with Purpose workshops with our founder Michelle Mannix, we are all about creating awareness around our intentions. For further inspiration, we’re visiting the newly opened exhibition at The Rubin Museum, entitled “The Power of Intention : Re-Inventing the Prayer Wheel” which highlights how intentionality defines the quality of our actions and empowers us to create positive change.

THE BEAUTY IN BACTERIA

We’ve always been fond of a little funk here at Cook Space - from our Fermentation with Wild Ingredients class to our Yogurt + Cheese workshop we are down to clown with cultures. Seems the head of fermentation at Noma, David Zilber, is a fan too, as he breaks down the break down of the genetic material of our food, and why it’s the most magical method of coaxing out flavor.

FROM SAIGON TO SECOND AVENUE

We’re so excited for our upcoming Vietnamese Cuisine Class with Nini Nguyen on May 9th  that we’re trying the newest Vietnamese spot to hit the city with rave reviews, Madame Vo BBQ.

A DAME WORTH DEIFYING

After stepping down from participation in the film “Luck”, Emma Thompson penned a powerful letter to Skydance, inquiring as to why they insisted on hiring accused sexual abuser John Lasseter, with her typical eloquence and magnanimity. Yes. Queen.

PRIORITIZING PANCAKES

While March is home to some very fantastic holidays (Mardi Gras, International Women’s Day but to name a few) for the few Brits among us, this past Tuesday marked an intensely important date - Shrove Tuesday, which though rooted in religious origins is almost entirely about one thing….pancakes.

BON VOYAGE FROM BASTIANICH TO BATALI

After the mountain of accusations against him for sexual misconduct, Mario Batali’s restaurant partners, The Bastianich family, are finally severing ties.

THE FIGHT WE’RE BEHIND

Christopher Reed, the loquacious and much loved face often found mixing up magic at Bar Goto, has been diagnosed with ALS. To help him in his battle with the disease, a GoFundMe page has been created - any donations, big or small can make a difference,

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Weekend Unwind

Info Cook Space

cook-space-friday-feels-weekend-unwind-self-care.jpg

It’s National Unplugging Day! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again - in a world awash with digital noise and social media mayhem, it’s good, nay, necessary, to turn off our screens from time to time and connect in real and meaningful ways with ourselves and with those around us. Perhaps you give that beautiful body of yours a little CBD TLD. Perhaps you and a loved one take a cooking class ;) Whatever you’re doing, we hope you’re sauntering into March with a little more awareness and intention.

WORK BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN

Let’s face it, aspire as we might, we’ll never be Oprah - but we can partake in some of her favorite art pieces at the “By Women, For Tomorrow’s Women” Sotheby’s auction curated by the one and only queen herself.

THE BOOK FOR BETTERING OUR MICROBIOME

As we prepare for our Fermenting with Wild Ingredients Class with Mallory O’Donnell on April 6th, we’re leafing through the new tome “Cultured” to feed our minds on how feeding our gut bacteria, can help us thrive.

THE “GOOD COMPANY" GUIDE FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN

As we bid a devastating farewell to Design Sponge this coming August, we’re looking back at one of our favorite interviews with its founder, Grace Bonney, on storytelling, inclusion and greater representation for all women in business.

AN UNEXPECTED (AND HAPPY) SIDE EFFECT OF VEGETARIANISM

Though the popularity of the keto, the paleo and all the other non-carbo diets shows no sign of slowing down any time soon, the nation’s obsession with the gram and “going green” has sparked a reminder of our passion for pasta.

ROCK OUT WITH A ROCKETMAN

Elton John is rounding out his farewell tour with three shows in NYC this coming week. Bring some big beautiful multicolored glasses to hide your tears.

MARTHA MEETS MARIJUANA

This week, America’s domestic goddess Martha Stewart announced her partnership with Canopy Growth, one of the globe’s leading marijuana producers proving Snoop’s word still has some sway.

A CHEF’S BUDDHIST INSPIRED BREAKFAST

NYC chef Camille Becerra blends her bevy of backgrounds to create a vibrant and comforting porridge to kickstart the day right.

THE HERBS FROM OUR OWN HOOD

Square Roots, the vertical urban farm based in our very own borough, is bringing new life and new meaning to local food for sustainably minded New Yorkers. Join us for our Root to Tip class to see how we make the most of these beautiful products!

A PERSPECTIVE ON PARENTING

The Canadian based Netflix show “Working Moms” blends humor and honesty to shine a light on the highest highs and lowest lows faced by new mothers.

BEAUTY SLEEP BITS AND BOBS

We’re all hyper aware of how a good night’s sleep can impact our mood, our productivity and our skin (especially in NYC, where zzzz’s are in short supply). Luckily, there’s a whole new slew of products for slathering on our bodies and brewing in our teas, to give us that ever elusive inner glow.

THE CHEFS OF COLOR WHO SHAPED THE NATION’S FOOD HISTORY

As Black History Month draws to a close, we look back on some of the most influential black culinary artists who’s food made a major impact.

STAYING WITH SLOWNESS

How paying attention to her pain forced Bon Appetit editor Amanda Shapiro to take a beat and lean into calm.
