Cooking with a Master

    Trump International Hotel & Tower New York is offering an exclusive culinary course with famed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. This three-day experience will give two to four guests the opportunity to learn directly from the chef at Jean Georges, his Michelin three-star restaurant.  For more than two decades, Vongerichten—who oversees more than a dozen restaurants— has been hailed for his reinvention of classic French cuisine, using vegetable juices, fruit essences, and herbal vinaigrettes in the place of classic stocks such as veal. The Jean Georges Culinary Master Course costs $9,000 and includes, among other things, accommodations in an executive Park-view suite as well as a three-course dinner and bottle of champagne at Jean Georges.
