“I want to be a part of it… New York, New York…”, as the famous song goes! 

So join us already, as CCKC Executive Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt takes you on a culinary walking tour of the foods of famous New York City neighborhoods.

What an exhilarating melting pot, where every language is spoken, every nation and race represented and every dream conjured... not to mention a plethora of amazing ethnic cuisine.

Our first stop will be the Lower East Side, as we visit a Jewish deli for the most geshmak (look it up) “I’ll have what she’s having!” Tiny Reuben Sandwiches. Bet you can’t eat just one.

We’ll keep strolling to Little Italy and enjoy a Charcuterie/Antipasto platter as our appetizer to showcase all of the freshly made cheese and specialty cured meats found in authentic Italian markets.

A short walk further, and we’re entering Chinatown, where we’ll feast on Minced Pork with wide noodles, then move on for a stop in Harlem, where you’ll learn to make Red Rooster’s Hot Honey Chicken and Cornbread (thank you, Marcus Samuelsson!). Mmmmm!

The evening is warm and the taxis are flying by.  We finally flag one down and we’re on our way to our final destination, Broadway, where you’ll get to help Chef Jill make an authentic Jrs. Cheesecake, a no-bake version of the iconic New York dessert favorite. Seriously, who could leave the Big Apple without it?

Save the airfare and join us! It'll be a night to remember right here in KC, as you relish in tasty New York culinary treasures!
