Hello, beautiful foodies of Philadelphia, and welcome to COOKbook, the official blog of COOK!
As you have probably heard by now, and since you are on this site, this summer, Audrey Claire Taichman, owner of Audrey Claire and Twenty Manning Grill, is opening COOK: a state-of-the-art, fully-equipped, sixteen-seat kitchen-classroom where guests will discover, prepare and enjoy meals made for and by the city’s diverse culture of food lovers.
Offering approximately twenty classes per month (as well as space for private events), COOK’s programming will range from classes taught by well-known area chefs, knife and butchering skills, multiple cookbook series, cocktail making, stocks and sauces, pasta-making, home-brewing, pastries and much more. Additionally, the boutique retail space at COOK will sell a variety of cookbooks, food periodicals, unique food products and kitchen gadgets.
So that’s the business but this is COOKbook, the official blog of COOK! The blog, I say, and it is going to knock your socks off! We are nothing if not ambitious at COOK (and maybe a tad crazy) so our goal is to make this blog the all-things-food-and-booze blog you cannot live without – featuring insider chef info and tips, recipes that will make people like you more, beer like it’s nobody’s business, our favorite places and things to eat, guest bloggers who know a lot and aren’t afraid to share it and much more.
Our ultimate goal is to make the COOK experience fun and entertaining – both in reality and in cyberspace. So visit us often!
Audrey, Lily and Jackie
