The Brooklyn Kitchen has been helping people cook better at home since 2006. We are focused on the home cook, and on making home cooking more enjoyable and accessible. Our class curriculum is designed to teach cooking IRL, to offer the tastes, smells, sounds and feels that you can't get from a YouTube video. Cooking and sharing a meal is a uniquely human experience, and is the basis of civilization.
"Food is the only art without which you would die." - Steve Albini
Cooking shouldn't be hard, or laborious, or an Instagram-perfect luxury. Real people should eat home-cooked food every day. Food should be something that we enjoy every day, an opportunity to nourish your body, mind and soul with care and reasonable effort. Cooking isn't about competition or showing off.
We live in the city; we have jobs and friends and pets and kids and hobbies. There's time and room for cooking, even in the smallest of Brooklyn kitchens. We have designed our curriculum to inform cooking for home cooks who want to cook better, and have it incorporate into their lives without taking over.
We offer a hand-selected collection of quality kitchen tools, knives and cookware, as well as specialty ingredients, many made by our friends and neighbors.
Epic nacho party for 60? Fortieth birthday dinner party? Pig butchering class with bespoke cocktails? Intimate rehearsal dinner? YES! We've created dozens of custom events for private clients, companies, media, and brands. We host events every day, we can make this awesome.
The Brooklyn Kitchen started out in 2006 as a kitchen store that sometimes had classes. Taylor Erkkinen and Harry Rosenblum, interested and creative home cooks, recognized an opportunity to create a community space in their Williamsburg neighborhood. In 2009, following the insane success of the Pig Butchering classes, they founded the Meat Hook with partners, and moved to the 100 Frost Street location.
The Grocery department grew organically out of Taylor and Harry's desire for quality ingredients, and quickly became the first market for a great crop of small food producers: McClure's Pickles, Grady's Cold Brew and Anita's Coconut Yogurt all got their start on these shelves.
