Mastering Rhubarb

May 16, 2021 | 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Rhubarb stalks

Spring is here and that means it is Rhubarb Season!  In this class you will learn how to celebrate rhubarb’s savory side – and a bit of its sweet side as well.

**PLEASE NOTE: This is a 2.5 hour class as additional time is needed for baking purposes.**

A couple of fun facts about rhubarb:

Rhubarb’s binomial name is Rheum rhabarbarum – which in Latin means “root of the barbarians.”

Rhubarb leaves are poisonous, chock full of more oxalic acid than humans and animals may safely consume. Small amounts of oxalic acid are found in the stalks, which we eat – the acidity gives rhubarb its tangy characteristic.

Menu (Choose 1 per ticket):

  • Pork Tenderloin with Spiced Rhubarb Chutney and Lemon-Thyme Rice & Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp


  • Chicken Thighs with Rhubarb and Riesling and Garlic Smashed Potatoes & Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp

***DISCLAIMER: New Hands-On Kitchen Cooking Class Operating Procedures***

New York Kitchen is taking measures to ensure the safety of all guests and staff in our classes as well as throughout our building. We have implemented new operating procedures in our classes to follow the mandated guidelines from the CDC. These include: Class capacity has been reduced from 24 to 12 guests maximum, at least 6-feet of distance between guests, hand sanitizers and disinfectants readily available throughout the classroom and building, and gloves will be provided, and guests must wear their own facial covering.

We want to give guests the best experience possible while holding health and sanitation as a top priority. To do this, New York Kitchen has altered the model of our popular hands-on cooking classes; guests are now given the opportunity to select the recipes they would like to cook in class ahead of time. This will allow guests and Chef Instructors to perform classes at the same length of time, instruction, and interaction in a safe manner. Guests will only consume the food they make at their own station and no longer share family style as we have in the past.

Please be sure when signing up for a class that you are selecting the correct recipe you would like to cook in class. Our friendly front desk representatives will confirm this when calling one-week prior to the class date. New York Kitchen looks forward to welcoming you all back and wish you and your families good health.
