More Class Places
We’re more likely talking ’67 Camaro than ’47 Cheval Blanc but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to sip on some great vino. FIAF Wine Tasting’s The Vintage Effect Class gives you that opportunity with one of this years more interesting sessions. Learn enough to navigate that monster list at Del Posto BUT be careful it doesn’t break your ApplePay next time you catch yourself with a full cart on Wine Library.com. Monday, March 14 @ 7pm in NYC.
Kids + Liquid Nitrogen = FUN. Sounds dangerous, we realize but in the capable and creative hands of innovating chef, Wylie Dufresne, the math proves true. Chef Dufresne will lead kids in a hands-on, interactive afternoon that’s bound to oooh and ahhh your kids. The magic will also distract them long enough for you to grab one of those famous Williamsburg coffees and actually enjoy sipping on it uninterrupted. With an official name of Cool Cooking with Wylie Dufresne: The Magic of Liquid Nitrogen, I think this equation is obvious. no brainer = brain knower. Saturday, April 2 at 11am at the Museum of Food + Drink Lab.
We’ve loved Ample Hills since day one. Which for us was when they judged Matt Timms Ice Cream Takedown and conceded to serving the peoples choice “Caprese Freeze” in their Vanderbilt shop. Since then, the’ve come a long way but have stayed true to their quirky, passionate roots. Their Ice Cream Social is a perfect case in point. Their ice cream making bike is fun, funny, exercise and reward all mixed up in one cream creating basket. Literally. That’s followed by what they call a waffle sundae bar. Yes please to whatever that is. Tuesday, July 12th from 7-9pm.
Michael Cirino, culinary innovator and experience genius, will spend 2 hours educating us about cannabis cooking techniques and its effects on the human brain. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not be served, offered or shared any marijuana in this class, and the organizers do not encourage the act of cooking or prepping under the influence. Although, Cirino will demonstrate the process using legal herbs. By close of class you’ll be armed with surprising new thinking around this unnecessarily infamous plant. Just be careful where you use your new knowledge. We don’t recommend a test at Thanksgiving dinner. Wednesday, April 20 at 6:30 PM @ The Brooklyn Kitchen.
