If you have deep pockets and a desire to commune with the city’s gastronomical demigods, we have the event for you. The French Culinary Institute and New York are hosting a two-day culinary seminar in which you can learn from, and cook alongside, the city’s best: Wylie Dufresne (“Recent Innovations at wd-50”), Eric Ripert (“On Fish and Shellfish”), Andre Soltner (“Classic French Cooking”), Anita Lo (“Asian American Cuisine”), and David Bouley (“French Techniques—Japanese Ingredients”), among others. There’s also a batch of Q&As; with the likes of Danny Meyer, Joe Bastianich, Drew Nieporent, and Donatella Arpaia. The event, organized by FCI’s Dorothy Hamilton and New York culinary editor Gillian Duffy, will be in September. Tickets run a cool $1,395, but at least breakfast and lunch are included! Consider it foodie fantasy camp.
Tickets are available here. You might want to order now.
