Between spring having finally sprung and this Sunday being Easter Sunday, there is no shortage of festive, springy, foodie things to do this weekend in New York. From chocolate demos, to lessons on eggs, to walking tours, this weekend holds plenty of great ways to celebrate the festivity of this long anticipated beginning of spring!
Chocolate Eggs, in the Style of Italy
On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Jean François Bonnet (chef of Tumbador Chocolate of Brooklyn) will be at Eataly demonstrating handmade chocolate Easter eggs. In the Italian Easter tradition, those who wish to buy an egg can even bring a small trinket to put inside their chocolate treat. This event is totally college friendly —there is no admission fee, and reservations are not required. However, the supply of eggs is limited. 5 inch eggs cost is $11.80, and 7 inch eggs cost $16.80. Eataly is located at 200 Fifth Avenue (at 23rd Street).
A Lesson on Eggs
On Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m., a comprehensive class on how to cook eggs, the differences between mass-produced and farm eggs and a demonstration of egg-cooking tools will be held at Brooklyn Kitchen, 100 Frost Street (Leonard Street) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This event costs $50. Visit www.thebrooklynkitchen.com for more information.
This Easter Sunday, an Easter chocolate walking tour will be held, covering the Gramercy Park and East Village neighborhoods. This tour will go from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and starts at L.A. Burdick Chocolates at 5 East 20th Street (L.A. Burdick makes the cutest chocolate mice). A $5 donation to the Food Bank for New York City is requested.
