Fun NYC Classes - Cheese Making, Chocolate Factory Tours & More!
New York City offers so much to do, see, and learn but so often we get caught up in our day to day and forget to get out and explore. In a past post from a few years back, I mentioned Coursehorse, which is now associated with TimeOut NY, and other resources to take one-time or more extended classes. Here are some of my current top picks - whatever you're interested in I promise they have a class for you! Make this your Spring of NEW things!

What you'll learn: It’s our most popular cake for a reason - rainbow sprinkles + cake makes it a party! Learn the secrets to how we build our b’day cakes layer by layer, and how we take the cake scraps and transforming them into our b’day cake truffles! By the end of class, you’ll have made your own 6” cake and walk away with your own stash of b’day cake truffles, too!
What You'll Learn: Mild and milky, smooth and silky: any way you stretch it, we love fresh mozzarella! And in this hands-on crash course we'll teach you how to make it at home. We'll all roll up our sleeves to turn curds into the beautiful balls that we know as fresh mozzarella. Taste several samples of fresh pasta filata (pulled curd) style cheeses (think Mozzarella, Bufala, Burrata, oh my!), enjoy unlimited pours of our house sparkling and red wines, and bring home your own mozzarella masterpiece.
