Stroll Down Arthur Avenue

On Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, a visit to New York City can feel like a visit to Italy -- at least to your taste buds. Take a walking tour and meet butchers, bakers, cheese makers and other local vendors. You'll see how to make fresh mozzarella, have lunch at Arthur Avenue Trattoria (try the eggplant parmesan) and visit Borgatti's, where you'll learn how to make egg noodles. Visit the Arthur Avenue Retail Market -- an indoor Italian bazaar full of sausage makers, fish markets and even cigar rollers.

$85: Class lasts from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. -- The Institute of Culinary Education
