Yesterday I took an afternoon class in pizza-making at Brooklyn Kitchen.
It was so much fun — very laid back but also useful and informative. The instructors are both star pizza chefs of the completely wonderful Roberta’s in Bushwick, Brooklyn so I was really pumped to learn from them. Not to mention eat some of the best pizza in New York as it came out of the oven in steady succession throughout the entire class. Yum.
This class was a gift certificate from last Christmas (no time like the present!) and after class I wandered around their store and butcher shop, The Meat Hook, to admire all the beautiful food goods, meats and cooking tools. A gift certificate (available in a range of amounts) is such a great gift because you can use it for classes or just in the shop.
Upcoming classes include homemade mozzarella, fresh pasta, winter cocktails, pickling with Bob, knife skills, dim sum…I want to keep listing classes but I’ll stop there.
