The school, located in Greenwich Village, is owned by Abigail Hitchcock. It has been open for almost 13 years, something of a record in Manhattan.

The cooking classes in in this school offer a unique experience of learning in a working restaurant kitchen. (If there’s a sudden rush, students stand back!) There are also tours in various New York City neighborhoods—Chinatown Shop and Cook is a perennially sold-out favorite. In another popular cooking class, One Night Stand, the student/chef works with Abby to plan, cook and serve family and friends a meal at the restaurant.

Notes:
We don't have any age restrictions on either our classes or events. We take people of all ages, but those under 21 years of age are not allowed to consume wine or any alcoholic beverages.

I loved it all! The sounds the tastes the courses were awesome. I do think some of my food had a touch of cream or something that I listed as a sensitivity, but it was all very tasty. If there was anything about the experience I would change, I’d say that if we are supposed to wait outside in the wintertime, we should know about it so we don’t end up arriving early and waiting so long in the cold. Anyway, thank you Abigail and staff you were all so kind and accommodating!

My partner and I took this class yesterday; we were blown away by the expertise and intimacy of the night. Abigail is such a knowledgable and bubbly hostess and she led the class with an infectious fervor. Matt, who also assisted with the class, made everything seamless between wines. We had such an amazing time discovering natural wines and understanding wine as a sensory experience. Thank you for everything!

It was a fantastic experience. An opportunity to try to enhance other senses but the sight in a safe environment. Staff very kind and professional and I had the plus to benefit from a meditation moment. Relaxing experience, enjoyable and unforgettable. That was a present’s birthday from my daughter Sissy and as usual her great taste for the good things was proved once more.

Abigail was a wonderful teacher and guide during this cooking class. She had lots of knowledge about Indian cooking, great tips for ways to get heightened flavors in dishes and even helped with my knife skills. Anyone who is thinking of taking one of her courses will not be disappointed. A definite plus was the intimate atmosphere and warmth of Matt and Abigail.
