You can now give this, the Grub Street Culinary Scholar Card, to someone you love. It comes in any amount and hooks them up with CourseHorse to learn scores of food and drink skills at all levels. How to make perfectly tiny tortellini, for example, braise a short rib, or master one’s Hot Toddy game. It can be redeemed for any number of classes citywide, like the one in which Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi shows folks how to put together her spectacular new cranberry-gingerbread cake.
Recipients can get their cheese knives out at Murray’s, sharpen santokus at the Brooklyn Kitchen, or wield cleavers at Dickson’s Farmstead Meats. There are thousands of classes to choose from overall and 124 venues — the Natural Gourmet Institute, Haven’s Kitchen, and the Institute of Culinary Education among them. The card is customizable and never expires; head on over here for all the details.
