Navigate a Farmer’s Market and Cook a Fresh Meal with Shop & Cook At Camaje

Located Downtown, the small French-American Bistro doubles as a cooking school for interested New Yorkers. For this particular class, students can expect to navigate New York City’s most famous Farmer’s Market, the Greenmarket, identifying local fruits and veggies and getting schooled on how to pick the freshest ones by the chef herself. Then, you head to the restaurant Camaje and learn how to put together a meal based on what you picked that day. The mostly vegetarian meal (there will be fish) will be paired with local beers and wines from the restaurant.

This class is as practical as it is fun, because how many times have we wandered through a Farmer’s Market and wondered what things are and how to even begin to go about cooking them? It will revitalize the way you think about cooking fresh and seasonal meals, for sure!

Located at Camaje, 85 MacDougal Street, the class is wonderful for Downtown Glenwood residents hoping to add more veggies into their diet this spring!

  • Time: Saturday, May 26th
  • Price: $150
