A Non Cooking Class with Cheap Ingredients
A complete waste of money. We took the Southern Cooking Class - This isn't a cooking class but rather an unnaturally large space where a "chef" will read you a recipe from a xerox. We were given cheap dollar store paring knives to cut vegetables which were then put Into a communal pot on a single hot plate. There isn't even a proper stove in this place? The instructor provided no direction other than to add two tablespoons of this and a pinch of that. No true measurements are used so nothing comes out correct. Jambalaya - We cooked this in small aluminum tins in the oven, not low and slow on a stove top. The ingredients were all cheap, nothing looked high quality. The instructor forgot one of the spices so the end product was bland and since it was baked it was quite dry. Buttermilk Pie - The woman teaching had clearly never made a pie in her life and had no idea we were meant to cream butter so we ended up trashing our entire recipe and starting over. The second time around the ratio of butter to flour was totally off and every single persons crust came out incorrect. Corn Bread - Eggs pre-mixed in a ketchup bottle? Apparently we were incapable of cracking our own eggs. Buttermilk was passed around the same way. Same problem here with the recipe, the instructors didn't know it, so the cornbread ended up tasting like flour soaked in oil. I will say this, I very much enjoy cooking, I'm very good at it and love taking cooking classes all over the city. This is the only time I have not actually learned something. It was disappointing to not only have paid for a class in which I learned nothing, but also that what we were given to cook with was cheap and not good quality. A waste of money on cheap food and nothing learned. I will not be returning or recommending.
Daughter (11) and I had wonderful time at Cook&Go
Feb 2014
(Same review left on another site as it's exactly how we felt about Cook&Go Culinary Studio) Cook&Go Culinary Studio is exactly what cooking should be. It's FUN and it's more than the sum of it's ingredients. Taking advantage of a Living Social sale, I stumbled across Cook&Go Culinary Studio and booked 2 sessions I planned to have my 11 yrs old daughter enjoy. The Cook&Go website FAQ indicated "kids" were welcome. Well my daughter's experience was extraordinary. She enjoyed her TV Tray class with Chef Joan immensely. She enjoyed the company of the other 7 participant cooks (6 adults, 1 HS age). She enjoyed the dishes they prepared and most importantly she had fun. Mr. Renaud Ammon, the owner of the studio took time to talk with us about our experience and especially expressed genuine interest in my daughter's feedback. Mr. Ammon is a class act and operates a class act service. This isn't some pretentious "nose-in-the-air" culinary extravaganza where frankly you're having a hard time just saying the name of the dish you're struggling to prepare. This is cooking as it should be ... fun, simplified and yielding some solid, tasty 3 course edibles. During our visit, the location played host to a corporate gathering (est. 30'ish ppl) on the other side of the studio. There was never any sense either our class or their event was being disturbed by the other. It got a little loud once or 2x but as everyone was clearly having a good time, so much the better. As we departed Cook&Go Culinary Studio, my daughter announced "she'd be back!" We absolutely will be. We're looking forward to our 2nd class and we're even considering the location to host an upcoming birthday party. Give these great folks a try. Have some fun on a date, with some friends, with your tween or teen. You wont be sorry and you just might "be back" too.

Neighborhood: Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.

Great cooking workshop for whole family!
Jul 2013 • Family
I attended the NYC Cook and Go culinary workshop (Kid friendly) in July. It was extremely hot outside, so this was a great way to spend an afternoon. Everybody enjoyed the workshop and the results were delicious! Our trainer was Chef Donny and he was extremely nice and easy going, especially with novices like us! The location of the studio is next door to Chelsea Market, the Meatpacking district, the Highline, and the water! Whats not to love?

Great basic, affordable cooking classes
Apr 2013 • Friends
I have taken the Mexican and sushi classes with Chef Dan and had a great time! I agree that the classes are not for experienced chefs, but they are great for beginners looking to pick up simple recipes and techniques. The classes are more about prepping than cooking; some of the ingredients are prepared ahead of time and you bring the food home to cook rather than eat after the class. The sushi class especially was very instructional and we learned great tips on different ways to prepare rolls, and also on where to buy the proper ingredients. I will definitely be back for more classes.

Perfect restaurant meal to go
Apr 2013 • Friends
Great idea: a restaurant quality dinner ready for you to assemble and take home, to cook and enjoy. Perfect for those in NY who would like to host a dinner party without any need to go shopping or spend hours in the kitchen.
