While Midtown has a vibrant restaurant scene, occasionally you may find yourself facing the stove in your own kitchen. If you wish your cooking skills were stronger, help is available at . Stock up on whatever you need, from tools to cookbooks and even classes.
The Cook’s Warehouse offers an extensive lineup of cooking classes, some demonstration and some hands-on. How are topics and instructors chosen?
“We definitely listen to our customers and take suggestions,” says Mary Moore, owner of The Cook’s Warehouse. “We also take cues from what’s happening in the world of foods, what’s trendy and what’s coming up, what unusual things are going on. And then we also have a lot of cookbook authors and instructors from the national and international scene come in—for example, Todd English recently taught a class. We try to be fresh and relevant and seasonal.”
Classes focused on fundamentals like knife skills, sauces and pasta are perennial favorites.
“The goal is to help people have more fun and a more rewarding experience with their cooking,” says Moore.
