COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Equal Rights Eats + Food Desert Fights

Info Cook Space

cook-space-equal-rights-eats.jpg

We’ve been here before. The “War on Women” is not only an ages old issue, but an extraordinarily tired one. The painful events of this past week in Alabama are certainly salt in a long open wound but, they forget - we know how to use salt to pack a punch. In addition to sparking new opportunities to support those living in areas with restrictive reproductive policies, it’s added fuel to an already raging fire for the female candidates running in the 2020 election.

So, we persevere, as we have always done and as we will always do.

“I ask no favors for my sex. I surrender not our claim to equality. All I ask of our brethren is, that they will take their feet from off our necks, and permit us to stand upright on that ground which God designed us to occupy.” Sarah Grimké

FOOD REMEDY

Eat Well. Move More. Stress Less. Love More. The pillars of the healing protocol UnDo It!, a lifestyle program geared toward preventing and even reversing chronic disease. Our favorite way to cure ourselves through chow? With our Vegetarian Mediterranean class, the healthiest (and perhaps still the most delicious) diet around.

SUNS OUT, BUNS OUT

With SPF season finally here, we’re all about al fresco dining - and while we’d all love to have access to unlimited outdoor space, we live in NYC, so we need to get creative with our “grilling”. Join us on June 25th for a BBQ Bonanza Without the Grill.

WHERE CRUST IS KING

As the city’s burning love for the perfect slice endures, our super popular Pizza Making class takes on a summer hues with seasonal produce on June 6th.

FIGHTING FOOD INSECURITY

Enormous props go out to the members of Teens for Food Justice, who recently conducts an audit of the bodegas and stores across the Bronx and Brooklyn, to identify the fresh, healthy food available at an affordable price point in so-called “food deserts”.

TASTE OF THE TROPICS

Warmer weather has us craving exotic eats (I mean what says summer like a tiny umbrella in a brightly colored beverage?) - join us as we bring the sunshine to our supper with our Caribbean Cooking class on July 23rd.

DINING LIKE A DANCER

Prima Ballerina, Misty Copeland, transfers her innate creativity from the stage to the kitchen with  her go to flounder dish. (We’re also pretty smitten with seafood as evidenced by our upcoming Fish FryLobster Boil and Fish Butchery classes.)

EATING WITH OUR EYES

While the ever revolving door of new city eateries can feel a little exhausting, there’s no denying the magic of NYC’s classic dining establishments. From The Lambs Club to Bleecker Street Pizza, the newly published “All the Restaurants” diagrams five boroughs worth of fabulous food.

FEMALE FORWARD FERTILITY

In a week that saw our nation take an enormous step backwards, it’s important to focus on those making important moves to progress women’s healthcare, like Kindbody, a new retail and mobile boutique offering full service fertility support to women across New York.

LUSH LONG ISLAND 

Drinks are on the docket in this season’s issue of Edible Long Island, getting us giddy with excitement for our upcoming Cooking with Cocktails class with Matchbook Distilling for our North Fork Popup in July.

SWEET AND SOUR SUMMER

While our appetites for acid are increasing, we’re still harboring a serious sweet tooth, and can’t wait for our Summer Fruit Spotlight, where we’ll be blissfully buried in berries by the end of class.

PASTRY FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD

We can imagine few better ways to tame the bad taste left by Alabama law makers than with the sweetness being served up at Cafe Altro Paradiso, for their enormously successful annual bake sale in support of Planned Parenthood.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Meals Like Mama Made

Info Cook Space

cook-space-mothers-day.jpg

Let’s face it, mothering can be a bit of a thankless job (albeit, they say, the best). And though a mere 24 hours isn’t nearly enough time to express our infinite gratitude for bringing us into the world, and putting up with us while we’re in it, we’ll take every opportunity we can get. If we’re fortunate enough to spend some time this weekend with the women who raised us, as so many aren’t, we’re showing our love on the plate and in the kitchen - be it whipping up a Mediterranean feast or sharing sweet treats in our Summer Fruit spotlight class, we’re serving up each dish with a side of serious admiration.

So, to each and every mother out there, whether we’re linked by genetics or simply good fortune, we say thank you, thank you thank you.

MASTERING MAN LOVE

In a time where toxic masculinity has been thrust into the spotlight and as  we work towards raising a male generation with greater emotional intuition, men still wrestle with expressing love to one another.

WHAT MOM REALLY WANTS

Rather than the “quality time” spent with her offspring that she claims to covet, your mother would really prefer that pagan artisan seashell tray to put jewelry in

SEAFOOD CITY

Until we can get our claws on the glorious chain that is Legal Sea Foods here in NYC, we’ll be creating our own crustacean celebrations with our Lobster Boil and our Oysters + Rose Summer Friday Special

MOM MAKES IT BETTER

In Priya Krishna’s stunning cookbook “Indian-ish” she recreates the beautiful blend of traditionally Eastern dishes with contemporary Western ingredients, based on her mother’s recipes.

GOING WITH THE FOOD FLOW

When the day just gets away from you and you need a little din-spiration for you and your loved ones, this handy flowchart proves you can make a magical meal out of whatever’s handy, no questions asked. To curate your kitchen creativity, why not join us at our Market to Table class on June 1st - you’ll get to pick your favorite seasonal produce on a glorious greenmarket excursion, before popping back to the studio to whip up some delicious dishes, all without recipes!

COCKTAIL CONTROVERSY

Given the uproar unleashed after one NYTimes reporter’s opinion on the apérol spritz, it’s apparent that it is, in fact, a delicious summer staple

THE ALLURE OF AIRPLANE MODE

One businessman’s advice….to single moms.

POWER BREAKFAST

While we can’t necessarily match the appetite of this diner and his ten egg breakfast, we can promise a feast to make him jealous at our Eggs-cellent Brunch on June 9th.

CULTURALLY CANTANKEROUS

The problem with an over-populated “must-read” feed.

HUMOR IN HEARTACHE

As we mark our calendars for the June 5th return of the second season of Big Little Lies, Laura Dern shares insight into her extraordinary career, shunning stereotype in search of nuance in each and every role.

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO

You can catch us on our commutes this week trying to control our chuckles atHeads Will Roll, a ten episode fantasy comedy created by SNL’s Kate McKinnon and her sister Emily Lynne (keep an ear out for the star-studded cast of narrators, including Meryl Streep, Peter Dinklage and Aidy Bryant).

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Dirty Hands, Clear Heads

Info Cook Space

cook-space-weekend-system-overload.jpg

We live in an age of exposure, over-exposure some might say - from the grand revelations of reprehensible acts by those in power, to the smaller, but no less significant uninvited commentary through social media, privacy can feel like a thing of the past. Existing in a society perpetually inundated with online information, we find it necessary to hold on to the few and precious tangible, personal experiences we have at our disposal. At Cook Space, we do this through cooking, creating balance between flavors and playing with new flavors amongst new friends. With our signature Culinary Confidence Series on the horizon next month, we look forward to expanding our horizons and our appetites beyond the confines of the computer screen, and we hope you’ll join us. 

 

You’d be amazed how getting your hands dirty can clear your mind.

CAKE OR YEAST?

As Adam Platt and his daughter navigate the best spherical treats in the city, we gear up for our upcoming Donut Making class to recreate our own favorites at home.  

THE FOOD MEMOIR MUST HAVE

“Notes from a Young Black Chef” by one of our favorites, Kwame Onwuachi, recounts the trials and triumphs of navigating the hyper competitive food industry as a young man of color. 

A FOOD SANCTUARY FOR SURVIVORS

During the 1998-99 war between Kosovo and Serbia, an estimated 20,000 men and women were raped and tortured. Two decades later, the Medica Gjakova artisanal food store is helping generate revenue to support the victims, and finally help them heal. 

 A FAME OF THRONES GRILL OFF

When we’re not making our own at our All About Burgers class, we’ll happily celebrate the final season of Game of Thrones at our neighborhood Shake Shack.

NEIGHBOURHOOD NOSH

We love our little corner of Brooklyn and the fabulous food folk who inhabit it - what better way to usher in a new season than with The Tastes of Gowanus Food and Drink Crawl tomorrow to benefit Seeds in the Middle, an organization inspiring social change through sustainable health.  

CONCERT CHOW

As the temperature rises, so too, do our appetites for al fresco dining, and the newly released Governor’s Ball Food Lineup has us curbside cravings and exotic flavors, like those to be found at our Japanese Street Food class. 

GOOD MOOD FOOD

New studies are focussing on the irrefutable connection between the way our food affects our mood, the results of which (in congruence with our recent Meals for Mental Health class) highlight not just WHAT we eat, but HOW we eat, and the attitudes with which we approach our food. Just further evidence that we need more courses in developing connection to our foods and where they come from (two of our top priorities in our Culinary Confidence series :) ) 

COOKING TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE

One reporter’s experience following the Climate Change Diet is just further evidence we need to do more to reduce Food Waste.

A WEEKEND FOR WOMEN’S VOICES

Inspired by the incredible women behind “When We Lead”, a panel held at The New School to celebrate women’s voices reshaping our media, we look forward to a future of workplace equity and a true dedication to reproductive rights in our political future. In the meantime, we’re finding balance in this unbalanced society through our Women’s New Moon Intention Circle, led by the fierce females of The First House Collective. 

A PALATE FOR REPURPOSING

On the heels of our Fermenting workshop, we’re taking inspiration from thisthrifty sauerkraut recipe for our upcoming Food Waste Feast.

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.

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.
