Join Atlas Obscura and the League of Kitchens for a culinary and cultural adventure in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The League of Kitchens is an immersive culinary adventure in NYC where immigrants teach intimate cooking workshops and is offering tours with Atlas Obscura for the first time.
With League of Kitchens' Lebanese instructor, Jeanette, as your guide, you’ll explore Bay Ridge’s 5th Avenue, a colorful main drag whose shops and restaurants tell the neighborhood’s long and rich immigrant story. Bay Ridge was bought by the Dutch West India Company in 1652, became an enclave for Italian, Irish and Norwegian immigrants in the 20th century, and is now home to Lebanese, Syrian, and Yemeni communities.
With Jeanette’s help, you’ll get the real insider scoop on authentic Lebanese ingredients and cooking as you visit three of her favorite markets. After shopping, you’ll grab a well-deserved snack at a bustling restaurant where everything from flavors and hospitality to occasional live music and Dabke (Levantine line dancing) is authentically Lebanese.
