New York – May 11 2002

Join renowned Norman Weinstein on a guided tour of one of Brooklyn’s most fascinating ethnic enclaves – “Little Odessa” – where Russian is the language of the day. The shops display an incredible variety of sausages, cheeses, smoked fish, pickled vegetables, cured meats, delicious cakes, breads, and Eastern European preserves. You’ll also explore the famous boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean and the area’s fascinating architecture.

Have a light breakfast at home, because at 12-noon you’ll have a substantial “sampler” lunch at one of the famous Russian restaurants. In the unlikely event that you are still hungry, you can sample the wares of the street food vendors along the tour path. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Make sure you carry a bag, because you’ll want to buy some food to bring back home.

About the Tour Guide:

Norman Weinstein is the founder of Norman Weinstein’s Brooklyn Cooking School. He has spent a quarter of a century spreading the gospel of great food. A former professional musician and voice teacher, Weinstein founded Norman Weinstein’s Hot Wok, the original incarnation of his cooking school, to teach New Yorkers about authentic Asian cuisine. He has written two books on the subject – Wok Dishes (Barron’s), nominated for an IACP Cookbook Award, and Chinese Cooking: The Classical Techniques Made Easy (Newsletter).

When he’s not in the kitchen, Weinstein is busy teaching television audiences about his lifelong passion, leading walking tours of regional cuisine (especially his beloved Brooklyn, like Brighton Beach), and holding tasting dinners at the most intriguing Asian restaurants the city has to offer.
