The Pantry, the insanely popular teaching and events space behind Delancey, has announced plans to expand with a second teaching kitchen. They've secured the space next door and will start building that out in September. When finished (which will hopefully happen before the holidays), there will be more classes, dinners, potlucks, and food swaps on the docket. The new space will also mean greater availability for private events and more opportunities to host visiting chefs and authors.
The Pantry is trying to raise $60,000 for its construction costs by selling gift certificates during July. Details on this and the sweet incentives for purchases are all available on The Pantry's website.
