Greenmarket Tour & Cooking Class

Saturday, October 6, 9:30am

This October, join Executive Chef Bill Telepan for a Saturday morning excursion to New York City’s beloved Union Square Greenmarket, followed by an interactive hands-on cooking class in Oceana’s world-class kitchen.

Meet up with Chef Bill in Union Square, where you’ll explore the Greenmarket as a group, engaging with the local growers and farmers that Oceana buys from each week. As one of the City’s first and most passionate proponents of greenmarket cooking, Chef Bill will share with you his insights and expertise as he selects fresh ingredients for the day’s meal.

Once the shopping bags are full, the group will return to Oceana together to prepare and enjoy a family-style lunch. Work side-by-side in the kitchen with Chef Bill as he guides you through the preparation of each dish, demonstrating the tricks of his trade along the way. The menu will be determined by what’s available at the market that morning, so get ready to be inspired and eat fresh!

$100 per person, including tax, gratuity & select wines

To book this one-of-a-kind experience, please call Oceana directly at 212.759.5941. Reservations must be made in advance as space is limited.
