Eat a home-cooked meal without the work
The stove-top-impaired can find solace in Sunday Suppers, the dinner party/cooking class hybrid from photographer and culinary enthusiast Karen Mordechai. A few times a month, guests gather at her airy Brooklyn loft; each person tackles a different job to create the seasonal menu. The unique charm of the resulting meal is in the details: custom-designed menus, elaborate floral arrangements and enticing parting gifts, such as homemade preserves, plus a stack of recipe cards for the next time the urge strikes to tie one on (an apron, that is). To make reservations, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit sunday-suppers.com. $85 and up.
