With summer in full swing, and our brows in full sweat, we’re surrounded by evidence of the climate crisis. We’ve been gushing for almost a month over the June meeting between two of our major girl-crushes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg, and, while the conversation can feel bleak, a new report has identified new ways to make our food systems both accessible and sustainable.
One of the ways we can make more with less, is by making our meals from scratch. In our Cooking 101 and Cooking 201 fan favorite courses that highlight our signature “no recipe” approach, we help you learn how to make the most of your ingredients and develop your culinary skills from a place of intuition, creativity and, most of all, joy. (Plus, we have serious AC in our gorgeous skylit dining room).
Check out our full lineup of classes available through October, as well as our special offerings out on the North Fork next weekend and in August!
