Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Learn to create your own comestibles with today's Groupon: for $55, you get your choice of a two-hour crêpes class for two people at Flip Crêpes (up to a $139.98 value). Choose from the following classes:
- Sunday Brunch crêpes-making class, which includes coffee and mimosas (a $119.98 value)
- BYOB Sweet Crêpes recipe workshop (a $119.98 value)
- BYOB Savory Crêpes recipe workshop (a $139.98 value)
The nimble foodsmiths at Flip Crêpes impart their wisdom to small groups with 1.5–3-hour BYOB-friendly classes that imbue students with the know-how to craft their own delicate delights. 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. Mimosas and freshly brewed coffee fuel weekenders passing folded-up crêpe notes in the Sunday Brunch class, in which participants construct a flat version of the late-morning meal. In the Sweet Crêpes and Savory Crêpes workshops, students undergo more in-depth instruction, following hassle-free recipes to forge batter from scratch.

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.
