Italian Cooking Classes in collaboration with Eataly
Eataly collaborates with IACE to offer unique tours which will offer students an insider’s perspective, exposing them to how bread and mozzarella are made fresh daily at Eataly, to the importance of the Slow Food partnership with many of Eataly’s producers, and to the history of this fast-expanding company. These excursions will culminate in a small cooking demonstration of simple, traditional Italian dishes, fostering healthy eating habits early on and even encouraging young adults to cook at home. Italian vocabulary, phrases and basic grammar will be incorporated along the way, keeping the Italian language ever-present.
Location: La Piccola Scuola, (23 W 23rd street, corner of Fifth Ave), New York NY 10010
Time: 09:45am – 12:15pm
Participants: 40 + chaperones
Price: $15 a seat for students. Teachers go for free.
We ask that you please plan ahead when you make your travel arrangements to your specified event; morning traffic is notoriously horrific during the workday. Classes and tours begin at 10 AM, so we ask for all groups to arrive no later than 9:30 AM so that we can arrange tour groups and cooking classes appropriately. Groups that arrive late for their event will have their classes/tours subject to cancellation, NO EXCEPTIONS. Eataly needs to resume normal operating procedures at noon and that will not be possible if events do not begin on time as the cooking class and tour take an hour each to complete. Please keep in mind that the staff at Eataly conducts these events outside of its normal operating hours and we must do everything we can to help things run smoothly.
