How these virtual classes work:

  1. After registering, you will be sent a link to log into the class at the appointed date/time. 
  2. One day before the class you will be sent a copy of the recipes we'll be making, so you can cook from them again after the class.
  3. Classes are 90 minutes and will have a maximum of 10 households attending each session. 
  4. This is a great opportunity to cook alongside friends and family! You can invite them to register their own households to join in the class, using the link in your confirmation email.

SHOPPING LIST for SHAWARMA

Because grocery shopping is not so easy these days, here is a sneak peek at what you will need in case that is helpful. This is enough food to feed 4 people:

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and a pepper mill
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast (about 1 packet)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose-flour
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 pound fresh tomatoes (cherry, grape, or any good looking tomato), 
  • 1 bag romaine hearts
  • 1 pound lamb shoulder or boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • ½ cup tahini
  • Hot sauce (any kind, optional)

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

  • The Baking Basics
  • Holiday Candy Workshop
  • Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

  • All classes are non-refundable.
  • We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to refill your seat with another student.
  • While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.
  • If you test positive or have been exposed to Covid, and it is less than 48 hours before your class, we will certainly work with you to find a future class for you to attend.
  • If you need to reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, please reach out directly to Home Cooking New York: [email protected].

For Culinary Bootcamps:

Boot camp registrations are not refundable, but are transferable to another boot camp if you give us more than 1 weeks’ notice if you need to change your start date.

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time:

  1. Send a vaxxed friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  2. Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

Thank you for understanding!
