Big Discounts on COOK Classes for Foobooz Fans

CookBig2

You know how you’re always complaining about the price of the classes at COOK? You know how you’re always whining about how fast everything sells out? Well we now have a solution to both of those problems for you clever and dedicated Foobooz fans.

Just for you good people, COOK is offering a 20% discount on all October and November classes. Why? Because they’re good people, that’s why. And also because we asked really nicely (and maybe begged a little). But the ways in which we debase ourselves for the Foobooz readership doesn’t matter. What does matter is that we scored you all a discount code that will get you 20% off on any October or November class on the schedule, up through November 1st. So that means 20% off the the only Thanksgivukkah celebration you’ll be able to attend for the next 7,000 years (because November 28 marks the only time in the next 7 millennia when Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah fall on the same day). That means 20% off a night with Michal Laiskonis (the former pastry chef at Le Bernardin and current creative director at New York’s Institute of Culinary Education) who’s coming in from Manhattan to get all Lithuanian in the kitchen with lamb dumplings, roasted duck and several different desserts (natch).

Sneak Preview: November At Cook

Open Stove

November is the best month of the year. That’s not an opinion, that’s fact. The city looks prettier, the people look nicer, the food even tastes better. My birthday is on the 5th of it, and 23 days later, I get to eat a lot of turkey. It’s really the best month.

It’s looking to be an awesome month for COOK, too. Very Thanksgiving-y, and rightfully so. Rachel Klein (Miss Rachel’s Pantry) is serving up a Vegan Thanksgiving, while Laura Frangiosa (The Avenue Delicatessen) is whipping up a Jewish Thanksgiving, and I have no idea what either of those mean, but it’s exciting. Also, there’s an inside-look at what the Petruce brothers are bringing to Walnut Street and yet another installment of our Foobooz Open Stove Night which, coming as close to Thanksgiving as it does, promises to be a total drunken disaster totally awesome.

Check out the full schedule after the jump and be ready to buy some tickets this Friday, October 4th, at 2 pm.
