inside the patti gelman culinary arts center
The Patti Gelman Culinary Arts Center is the only fully equipped kosher kitchen to offer both dairy and meat cooking classes in Manhattan. The culinary studio remains bustling throughout the week with instructive cooking classes held daily for adults, teenagers and children. Our intimate, hands-on classes are an ideal place for beginners as well as experienced cooks to improve their cooking skills.
Equipped with four convection wall ovens, a convection range, and twelve gas cooktops, our state-of-the-art culinary studio is strictly kosher. We maintain separate supplies, equipment, sinks, and refrigerators. Rabbi Abraham Mamorstein oversees the kashruth for the culinary studio.
Since we opened in January 2002 we have hosted many wonderful guest chefs including internationally recognized French chef, television personality, and author Jacques Pepin, Food Networks' Claire Robinson, cookbook author, food critic, and radio personality Arthur Schwartz, and award-winning American cookbook author and newspaper journalist Joan Nathan, to name just a few.
Our classes have attracted students from as far away as Europe, South America, and the Middle East. Regardless of where they hail from or if they keep kosher, students from many different backgrounds have come together to cook, eat, laugh and learn in our festive and informative cooking classes.
