Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, learning a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Learn to create your own comestibles with this Groupon: for $25, you get a BYOB Crash Course at Flip Crêpes (a $49.99 value).
The nimble foodsmiths at Flip Crêpes impart their wisdom to small groups of up to 16 during the 90-minute Crash Course class, a BYOB affair where students gobble up the fundamentals of crêpe creation as they sip on their favorite libations. Instructors guide attendees through the from-scratch concoction of their own crêpe batter and show them the proper cooking and flipping techniques with a pan, traditional griddle, and industrial steamroller. Crêpe makers can bring their own fillings from home, or stuff their edible envelope with ingredients from the school’s stockpile, which brims with Nutella, preserves, and bananas. Crêpes may be consumed on the spot or taken home to display proudly on the fridge.
Flip Crêpes and Flip Chefs
Flip Crêpes got its start on the Chicago Farmers Markets circuit in 2003, slinging its warm and sweet or savory treats to steadily growing flocks of customers. Eventually, the company outgrew its humble beginnings and expanded to a location inside the Ogilvie Transportation Center, where customers stop in for the crowd-pleasing crepes alongside a burgeoning roster of sandwiches and paninis. Four distinct menus address any and all cravings the day might present, including selections that tackle breakfast munchies with eggs and bacon, a passion for the savory with toasted options, salad cravings with fresh and crisp selections, and sweet teeth with desserts chock-full of Nutella, strawberries, and dulce de leche. The tender crepes will only wrap their eggy arms around healthy, high-quality ingredients, so the chefs avoid high-fructose corn syrup and other undesirable foodstuffs.
