Italian Cooking Classes in collaboration with Eataly



Eataly collaborates with IACE to offer field trips to give students an insider’s perspective of Eataly and introduce them, through food, to the richness of Italian culture. By highlighting traditions and delicacies from all regions of Italy – Northern, Central and Southern – the visit will open students’ eyes to the diversity of Italian cuisine.

Field Trip Schedule

Hour 1: Tour of the marketplace with a taste of special products.

Hour 2: Interactive game allowing students to practice their Italian and reinforce what they learned on the tour. Italian vocabulary, phrases and basic grammar will be incorporated, keeping the Italian language ever-present.

*Please note the format has changed from prior years. There is no longer a cooking class, as Eataly and IACE have decided the tour + game are a better way to engage the students in a learning experience.  


Location: 200 5th Ave, New York, NY 10010

Time: 9:45 AM – 12 PM

Participants: 40 + chaperones

Price: $15 each for students payable to IACE. Teachers go for free.



Please arrive by 9:30 AM. When making travel arrangements, keep in mind that morning traffic is notoriously bad. Field trips are subject to cancellation for groups that arrive late. No exceptions. Eataly offers these field trips free of charge for the Italian-learning community and needs to resume normal operating procedures at noon.

*Changes to Our Reservation Policy*

Due to the high demand, limited availability and an effort to give as many schools an opportunity to partake in our events as possible, schools will be limited to one reservation per academic year.
Beginning this year and moving forward we will be requiring a 20% deposit to be paid at the time a reservation is made. Teachers will have until six weeks before the date of their scheduled event to cancel and receive a full refund of their deposit. Any cancellations made within less than six weeks of the scheduled event WILL NOT be subject to a refund. Teachers must notify IACE IN WRITING should they need to cancel a reservation.


This new policy will be enforced in order to avoid last minute cancellations which leave us unable to fill with other schools from the waiting list. The facilities we work with have many other business obligations and the events we offer are limited and in high demand. We strive to make sure everyone has a fair opportunity to schedule an event and last minute cancellations are unfair to both other schools and our participating partners.




Calendar 2017-2018

Reservations will be made available on Thursday September 21, 2017 at 11: 00 AM.
