Yes, we’ve been waiting a long time for the opening of Cook (the cooking school/demo space/collaborative show kitchen/mad scientist’s laboratory being opened by Audrey Claire Taichman at the corner of 20th and Rittenhouse). We’ve talked about it and speculated about it because we think it has a chance at being one of the coolest things to come to Philly in a long time–a kind of ground-level version of Barbara Lynch’s Stir in Boston (something we’d say even if our corporate masters weren’t involved in the promotion of it).
But now, there’s finally some news. An opening date has been chosen. The first dozen or so classes and chefs have been scheduled. And come Wednesday of next week, the list will go live and tickets will officially go on sale.
One of the benefits of Philadelphia magazine’s involvement with Cook? We here at Foobooz HQ will know the full schedule and all the ticketing information as soon as the Cook crew does. Which means we’ll be able to hip you to the best classes and the coolest chefs the minute they are booked.
So stay tuned…
