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!

Cook Space Conversations this week…

ROOT TO TIP

With approximately half the nation’s produce going to waste every year, we prioritize using each and every part of the fruits and vegetables at our disposal. Join us for our famed Market to Table class on September 14th, where we’ll soak up the last of the summer sunshine at Grand Army Plaza before heading back to the studio to make the most of our haul. 

COURGETTE CRAVING

Summer is host to some of the most delicious fruits and vegetablesand we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate what’s on offer at our local greenmarket at our Summer Picnic Favorites class on August 8th.

MARKET MANNERS

We like to source the majority of our produce for our Culinary Confidence series at the local greenmarket, so we’re brushing up on our tomato touching etiquette.

FISH FAN

We love us some seafood (our Fish 101 classes are regularly sold out). After a recent study on mussels, it turns out there’s even more reason to show our marine life some love.


THE “HAVING IT ALL MYTH”

Ann Yang appeared to have built the perfect career path, launching her own food business before even graduating from college. But, as she details in her latest essay, keeping up the appearance of success left no room for mental health maintenance. 

LOIN LOVE

While wedding season and the obligations that come with it seems to have now taken over 3/4 of our weekends and annual income,pineapple and pork is a summer marriage we can get behind. Join us for our Suckling Pig Butchery + Cookery class if you share our porcine passion.

FREE TO FEED

This incredible Australian not-for-profit social enterprise is championing the rights and talents of refugees in their community through food oriented initiatives, classes and events. From our table to yours, we salute you and the work you do.

GRAIN GOALS

With our Sushi Making class coming up next month, we share these women’s mad respect for rice.

PASTRAMI PRIORITIES

We’re all for fancy twists on classic dishes, though we’re excited to be making our own delicious iterations of Jewish Deli Favorites this Fall.

REPRESENTATION STATION

The upside to the current culture of discrimination exposure, is that we’re finally shining a spotlight on the long overdue diversity at the forefront of innovative American cooking.

WANDERLUST LONDON

Richard Curtis, creator of cult classics “Love Actually”, “Notting Hill”, and “Four Weddings and a Funeral”, dishes on the best of the British Capital.

BREAKFAST BRAIN FOOD

How one writer worked out how to eat cookies for breakfast (and call it healthy). For those looking to remain virtuous without sacrificing flavor, our Market to Table class on July 13th, is guaranteed good for your body and taste buds.

FAVORING FISH

Poached, fried or steamed, it’s safe to say that summer, for us, is all about seafood.

THIRTY AND THRIVING

Though the entire Healthyish Guide to your 30s is mandatory reading this weekend, we’re particularly taken with the advice from industry moguls on what they’d tell their younger selves.

THE COOKBOOK WE’RE COVETING

From the women of La Cocina, the famed San Franciscan incubator for low-income food entrepreneurs, comes a brand new cookbook, highlighting regional menus from around the globe. Perfect inspiration for our upcoming international classes such as Seoul Street Food and our Summer In Greececlass.

ADHD-ELICIOUS

How one woman honed her hyperactive mind in the kitchen, using cooking as a space for therapy and self-expression.

RAVIOLI ROMANCE

If the new Pasta Social Club is a wee bit out of your price range, join us for our nearly sold out Summer Special Pasta Class next Tuesday for just $65 a ticket!

BRUNCHING WITH BARNEY

If it ain’t broke….(but if smoked fish isn’t your favorite way to start the day, consider our hit class, Ayurvedic Brunch)

REQUISITE RICE

Five women reflect on the importance of the ancient grain - we’ll show you how to perfect this staple preparation in our Sushi Making Class.

PLATES FOR PRIDE

The immersive stories of five queer chefs, experienced in five delicious courses.

FREEDOM DAY FEAST

Juneteenth, marking the effective emancipation of  American slaves, was celebrated by the Bon Appetit crew in a feast replicating recipes from Edna Lewis and Freda DeKnight.

PIE PRIORITIES

The best vehicle for summer bounty is apparently a deep dish pie crust - while we don’t disagree, we’ll be gleefully testing the theory in our Summer Fruit Spotlight Class on July 17th.

STATEMENT SUPPERS

Alex Koones, founder of Babetown, is the one woman wonder woman behind the dinner club pop up bringing queer women, transgender and non-binary people together around fabulous food.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Love Is Love

Info Cook Space

cook-space-pride-month.jpg

Living in New York, it can be easy to forget how fortunate we are to be part of a city that, though it still has ways to go, not only celebrates the LGBTQ community, but aims to champion it. It is a privilege, therefore, to dedicate this month to this vital and vibrant community, without which the concrete jungle would be all dark hues and hard edges.

For the fierceness you posses, the fabulousness you provide, and the freedoms you continue to pursue for all those marginalized for something as simple as reserving the right to love whomever you love, we salute you. 

#loveislove

PEACHY KEEN

This upside down cake, featuring one of our favorite fruits of all time is making us wish July would hurry up and get here already so we can host our Summer Fruit Spotlight class

A TALE OF TWO KITCHENS

Gabriela Cámara, the certifiable queen of Mexican cuisine, is heading the pack of strong, successful female chefs getting recognition this year and we couldn’t be happier. We too, will be taking our taste buds south of the border at our Taste of Mexico class. 

DAD DONUT DATE

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to say I love you than with some sweet treats at our Donut Making Workshop.

REMEMBERING ANTHONY

In the year since his death, countless outpourings of confusion, heartache, but most of all admiration and love have been issued and a new spark of energy around how we approach mental health has been ignited - one thing’s for certain, the world simply isn’t the same without Anthony Bourdain.

OPERATION MELTDOWN

Looks like this summer in the city is going to be a particularly steamy one, what with the crack down on 34 ice cream trucks seized this past week for parking violations. Save yourself the queue for the remaining Mister Softees on the street and join us at our Ice Cream Making workshop on June 27th.

THE FUTURE OF FOOD

What an increasingly aggressive climate crisis means for our food systems. 

THE WONDER OF WASHING UP

Craving that clean plate induced calm.


FOOD BEFORE FUSION

Can’t get a reservation at the hot new Japanese - Caribbean fusion restaurant Mo’s Original ? Then join us at our Sushi Making class or our Caribbean Feast for a more foreign feast with a little more focus. 


WEEKENDS A LA KING

Professional eater Adam Rapoport waxes poetic on one of our favorite spots and on the Saturday dinner vs. Sunday lunch debate(we’re firmly in the latter camp, if you couldn’t tell by our roster).


WHAT’S LINING OUR BOOKSHELVES

We’re toting these tomes along with our towels to the beach this summer.


PALE ALES + PRIDE

Three’s Brewing has pretty impressive roster for Pride Month this year, including tonight’s Queer First Friday, and a comedy, burlesqueWorld Pride Variety show on Sunday. We’re taking inspiration from their hopped up festivities for our own Beers + Bratwurst happy hour on July 19th, part of our Summer Friday Series. 


FINANCING A FOOD DREAM

With so many harboring dreams of opening their ideal eatery, it’s worth discussing the blood, sweat, tears and yes, money, that goes into one.


A SUMMER FOR SHELLFISH

Even if you can’t make it to our New England Clambake this month, here’s how you can build your own badass seafood platter

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-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.

WHAT WE’RE JAMMING TO

In her beautiful ode to her artistic predecessors, Jamila Woods’ new album “Legacy! Legacy!” delivers affirmations with telltale eloquence.

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).
