All the best resources to find a New York Culinary School

Looking for recreational cooking classes in NYC!?

As a Christmas gift, I want to participate in some recreational culinary classes with my boyfriend. Looking for courses in New York City, weekends only, no more than $95/person per session, starting not before first weekend in January. Does anyone know of anything so affordable? (NOT looking for demonstrations, hands-on cooking ONLY!) Not interested in ICE or New School. Thanks!

There is this great place called RUSTICO COOKING, they do mainly Italian cooking classes and this is definately HANDS ON. It’s located on 39th Street between 5th and 6th aves, right around the corner from Lord & Taylors. Lessons cost $95 per person, dinner and wine included. They also offer gift certificates that you can give your boyfriend for a hands on cooking class. Here is the website, check it out
