I wish I lived closer so I could take a tour It sounds li8ke fun I wonder if other cities are doing this? Do you know of any? If you are looking to improve your culinary ability you have to take this tour! You go to the greenmarket for one of CENYC's Chef Tours and Tastes. You get to join one of NYC's top chefs, maybe Savoy's Peter Hoffman, The Tasting Room's Colin Alevras, or Butter's Alex Guarnaschelli, on a tour through the local greenmarket, you pick the freshest ingredients from their favorite local farms, then help with cooking up a five-course meal at their restaurant using those foods ( June's rhubarb in a dessert tart). Proceeds benefit CENYC's greenmarkets, which support local farmers, and education programs like these and other community classes. There are only about 20 slots for each tour. Tours cost $125/person, excluding beverage and gratuity ($65 is tax deductible).
