About this event

Cooking modern rustic: Three simple, and sure-to-impress dishes that make this the ideal meal for entertaining or busy weekday nights. You’ll be cooking with Sam, who now works at Instacart NYC in Operations, and was previously a chef in high-end NYC kitchens for 10 years.

Make sure to have the following items for this cooking class:

  • 2 whole fish (Branzino is great! Make sure they are cleaned by your fishmonger)
  • 4 artichokes
  • 2-3 heirloom tomatoes or tomato mix you love
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 orange, 1 lemon, 1 lime
  • 1 head garlic, 1 shallot
  • 1 jar shelled roasted peanuts or your favorite nut
  • 2 tbsp mustard + 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 stick butter + 1.5 cup olive oil
  • 1 tub Labne (ricotta or yogurt are great subs)
  • 1 small jar zaatar or your favorite spice mix (a Middle Eastern spice mix featuring sesame and thyme - you can find this in most spice shops)

Nice to have items, but are not required:

  • 1 small box coarse sea salt + some whole spices you have lying around, like black peppercorn, cumin, or coriander + 1 egg
  • Truffle butter (because who doesn’t love that)
  • Basil and other fresh herbs to add to your tomato salad
  • Greens for inside your artichoke, like Frisee
