Culinary Walking Tour: Industry City (Course 12496) combs through this one-stop ecosystem for experiences and one of the best new destinations for exciting eateries, craft beer, and food start-ups.

Cohen is also introducing a new cooking series for SAS, Greenmarket to Grill. Each class provides a different menu for students to prepare in hands-on lessons before sitting down for an enjoyable feast when the grilling is done. The Wednesday, May 8, 2024, session of Greenmarket to Grill (Course 12568) serves up recipes for various salads and dishes featuring grilled halloumi, salmon, chipotle-maple chicken, and bananas. On Wednesday, June 5, 2024, Greenmarket to Grill (Course 12569) incorporates grilled watermelon, chicken kabobs, za’atar lavash bread, flank steak, and dessert pizza, into multiple mouth-watering meals. Then on Wednesday, July 10, 2024, Cohen grills portobello mushrooms, salmon, sliders, and shrimp in her final Greenmarket to Grill (Course 12570) installment of the season.
