Event description


UPDATED 5/26//20: To ensure our interactive dining experiences meet the best practices and standards set forth by our city’s professionals, we have decided to postpone the ‘Make Pasta & Fresh Mozzarella' events for May & June 2020.

If you have tickets to an event that was scheduled in March, April, May, or June, please email info@hellohungrypop.com to discuss transferring your ticket(s) to a future event date of your choosing, as we are currently scheduled through weekends in September.

We hope that these measures help to put our customers’ minds at ease and assure you that we place your safety and that of our employees as our number one priority. On behalf of the entire Hungry Pop team, we thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon.

ATTN: If you are interested in learning more about Hungry Pop's interactive food experiences for your next corporate/team-building or private (bachelorette, bridal, birthday) event, you can contact us directly HERE.

After perfecting the sold-out ‘Make Pasta & Fresh Mozzarella’ over the past six months in the South Street Seaport, Hungry Pop has now solidified this experience as the newest must-do activity for singles, couples, friends, co-workers, and families all across the New York City region.

You’ll eat a ton of amazing food (we’re talking about a complete, plated meal here!), enjoy an open red & white wine bar, and you’ll make fresh pasta & mozzarella-- all in just two hours.

So what exactly is an interactive dining experience, you might be asking yourself? Let’s simply put it this way: It’s not just another night out at a local restaurant and it’s definitely not your typical cooking class (which oftentimes leaves you overworked and underwhelmed). This is the best of both worlds—all rolled into one. This experience is for anyone who’s looking to have a good time--doing something super memorable--alone or with the person/people in their lives who they care about the most.

Following in the footsteps of our sold-out weekly event series, 'Make Pizza', 'Make Pasta & Fresh Mozzarella' goes down on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons in May, June, July, and August.

With a little help from artisanal cheese-making expert and New York native, Max Schwartzman (who learned how to make fresh mozzarella in NYC’s finest establishments like Agata & Valentina, Campbell Cheese, and Mekelburg’s) and Giorgo Katrantzos (who has more than fifteen years experience in hospitality and has held managerial positions at Walt Disney, Morton's Steakhouse, and Boro Hotel ), you can experience the most unique dining experience happening in NYC right now.

To kick the event off, you’ll have a wonderfully refreshing mixed green salad with a creamy goat cheese & walnuts. Then, to add some much needed protein to this over-the-top culinary experience, we'll also serve up grilled chicken skewers seasoned with freshly-squeezed lemons and oregano; oh, don't forget about a heaping portion of handmade cheese tortelloni served with our homemade broccoli cream sauce! After all is said and done, you'll finish this experience off with the most yummy dessert ever: delicious cinnamon walnut pastries prepared by our very own chefs (plus fresh-baked loaves of ciabatta bread served throughout the evening)!

Then, the real fun begins...

You’ll get a quick demonstration of how to make both pasta dough and fresh mozzarella, and then you’ll finally be able to participate in making your very own mozzarella and fresh ricotta-stuffed tortelloni & fettuccine pasta (the latter of which you'll get to take home with you).

After you make your very own ball of fresh mozzarella, you'll be able to finish the dish off with slices of imported prosciutto and an heirloom tomato salad with basil and chunks of Parmigiano Reggiano.

To start the pasta-making experience off (you’ll be able to bring home the tortelloni and fettuccine you make from scratch with your very own hands during this event), you'll first enjoy a tasting of fresh tortelloni with a homemade broccoli cream sauce to enjoy right then and there; so, yes, you should definitely come hungry and you’ll absolutely leave full and most importantly, happy.

Not only will you gain invaluable hands-on culinary experience, but you’ll also learn first-hand about fresh mozzarella and pasta from Hungry Pop’s skilled team of licensed professionals!

Talk about a full meal and interactive dining experience all in one, right?! So. Damn. Good.

So grab your boys, girlfriends, significant other, work colleagues, and/or loved ones (or come solo!) and join Hungry Pop for a taste of heaven and to test out your pasta and mozzarella-making skills.

If you’re looking for the newest, most interactive food experience & feast unlike any other happening in New York City right now, this is it!
