Learn to make your own crack pie. Baking soda not included

Did you see the Top Chef casting announcement and slink away, intimidated, from your reality TV chef dreams? Why? Just because you “can’t cook?” Well, that shouldn’t stop you, but if you really feel you need a little ability before the next cooking competition comes calling, or you just want to impress your friends and lovers, you can now sign up for classes at to learn from the dessert masters at Momofuku Milk Bar.

The classes will teach you how to bake through the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, and are organized in terms of the chapters. All of the classes except for Chapter 3, “Crumbs,” are full, but it would make existential sense for a brokester to take a cooking class called “Crumbs” though, no? The classes cost fifty bucks and go from 7pm to 9pm. You get to take home whatever you bake during the class, so try not to spend money on sweets the week you take a class. And if you’re super bummed you can’t get expert instruction on how to make crack pie, you can sign up for email updates on when the next classes are going on.
