Begin the day with a light breakfast and an expert cooking demonstration at Upper East Side's premier gourmet market. Here, the chefs will demonstrate their practiced techniques in the making of cheese, pastries and other delectable goodies.

Now, return to an Upper East Side you never knew existed: visit an old German bakery, a neighborhood fixture established nearly eighty years ago, when German immigrants favored the area.  Taste the hand-made rye, pumpernickel and other signature breads of Central Europe baked in time-tested brick ovens.

Our next stop is at New York's only bookstore devoted solely to food and cuisine.  The owner will guide you to the latest copy of The Joy of Cooking or a rare copy of a royal Ottoman cookbook, with equal aplomb!  Then it's on to New York's most ingenious culinary-concept store, to sample some world-class wines. 

Finally it's time for lunch and you'll have stories to tell after savoring the finest pastries in the world at our special patisserie.  The owner's  pedigree shows in his sinfully sweet creations: the works of a master.
