About the New Boston Cooking School

Why the New Boston Cooking School?

Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School opened its doors off Boston Common in 1879 with a mission to teach practical cooking skills for low-income families. In the beginning, classes focused on nutrition, science, health, and home-cooking habits. As its popularity grew, the Boston Cooking School expanded to offer a more diverse curriculum the attracted students from all classes and many professions. The New Boston Cooking School lives on in this spirit. With our pilot series of classes, we offer a sturdy basis in how to become a great home cook, and we will eventually offer classes for less practical—but equally important—home-cooked delights. To begin, we will build the foundation, teaching those new to cooking how to think and act like a home cook.

It is the home of Cook’s Illustrated magazine and Cook’s Country magazine and is the Monday-through-Friday destination for more than four dozen test cooks, editors, food scientists, tasters, and cookware specialists. Our mission is to test recipes over and over again until we understand how and why they work and until we arrive at the “best” version.
