This morning I found classes offered at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan. I think the walking tours look like a lot of fun. They offer walking tours of these areas Little India, Author Avenue (little Italy), Chinatown Dim Sum, Chocolate Factories and a Greenmarket Cuisine tour. The only one that will be offered while I am there is the NYC Cupcake tour. It might be fun. This is the tour description:
"All cupcakes are not created equal---this walking tour will show you the best of them. Join ICE’s resident cupcake expert Melanie Underwood on this sweet tour of her favorite cupcake spots of the city. Along the way you’ll eat and discuss what makes cupcakes one of America’s favorite treats at the famous Cupcake Café along with lesser known bakeries like Sugar Sweet Sunshine, Babycakes, Crumbs, and Billy’s. The class meets at 10 AM at La Bergamote (169 9th Avenue, at the southwest corner of 20th Street) for coffee and pastry. Wear comfortable shoes and bring an unlimited Metrocard. Tours run rain or shine. Registration for the walking tours is limited to those age 18+." $70
They also offer this class, Cooking in New York: A Five-Day Global Culinary Adventure. How much fun would it be to spend five days at a cooking school?
