FOOD TOURS & COOKING CLASSES
Bagels & Brownstones Food Tour
Ready for your mind to be blown? Well, NYC bagels tend to have that effect at first bite! On this food tour we will experience everything Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens has to offer. From beautiful brownstones to local coffee shops, this is by far one of the cutest areas in NYC.

Wash that pasta down with some vino and call it a recipe for the perfect night! Our beginner cooking class teaches you the skills you need to impress everyone at your next dinner party. In this class, learn the fundamentals you need to make the perfect pasta and tomato sauce from scratch. We promise you will never want dried pasta out of a bag again.
Pizza Making 101 Cooking Class
Stuff your face like no one’s watching, It’s your night out. In this cooking class, we teach you how to make the perfect pizza. You’ll make the dough, fresh ricotta, and cook tomato sauce from scratch. You will even learn how to make a cannoli like a true Italian. We promise, you will never rely on take-out pizza again!
Tea Party Cooking Class
It’s never too late to play ‘tea party.’ In this East meets West cooking class, you’ll learn a basic history of tea and taste four types. We will teach you how to integrate Chinese teas into your self-care regimen and pick the best option for your ailment. We will also teach you how to throw a tea party like the British, including how to make scones and tea sandwiches.
Our food experiences are lighthearted – we encourage you to join us in your best stretchy pants. We believe laughter and learning belong together and that local food tells stories that re-connect us with each other and the world around us.
Stretchy Pants is a versatile culinary experience company that reinvigorates the locals’ passion for their city’s food scene. Our experiences include food walks and custom food events. By keeping it small, focusing on fun, and tailoring the experience, we leave the customer hungry for more. You can trust us to treat you right.
So congratulations. You’ve broken through your food coma. No, not the kind of food coma you fall into after a fantastic sesh of stuffing your face with warm chocolate chip cookies, but the kind of coma we all find ourselves in when we realize we’ve just ordered Chinese from the same place on the corner one block down for the 4th time this month…ok, maybe 8th. Stretchy Pants is here to help. Our food tours and custom events operate in multiple neighborhoods throughout San Francisco with more to come!
Life is short but delicious. Whichever activity you choose to indulge in, you’ll leave full and informed and maybe a little tipsy!
