In the Kitchen with Geoffrey Zakarian at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City!


Throughout a career spanning 30 years, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian has made his mark as a chef, restaurateur and food authority on TV. During this private interactive evening Geoffrey will share culinary, mixology and entertaining tips to enhance the holiday season exclusively for Inside Access guests.

The evening will feature recipes from Chef Zakarian’s acclaimed Town/Country cookbook. Upon arrival to the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in New York City, guests will be welcomed into the Demo Kitchen for a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception. During this time, Chef Zakarian will offer a demonstration of items on the evening menu. Then in small groups, Cardmembers will move to their assigned kitchens to prepare a sampling from the dinner. From chopping to mixing, Geoffrey Zakarian and the ICE team will help guide guests during the experience.

Following the hands-on portion of the evening, Geoffrey will host a specially curated three-course dinner with a selection of wine and cocktails.
