The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one cooking class with Evette Brady at 1620 Restaurant (a $50 value). Classes are scheduled on November 7, 10, 14, and 15 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
1620 Restaurant's owner and resident culinary guru Evette Brady guides inquiring minds through classes that elucidate the art of cooking. Up to 30 students can engage in hands-on demonstrations focused on infusing classic cooking methods with the nuances of contemporary technique. This seasonal class series pivots around a central theme of Thanksgiving and the holidays, as Brady assists in conjuring appetizers, pies, and stuffing, as well as giving advice on foraging for edible Plymouth Rocks. With Brady's lifelong steeping in the culinary arts, which began with practical training from her caterer mom, the executive chef stands well poised to pack student heads with a delicious knowledge filling.
French techniques and Southern soul elevate the traditional American dishes at 1620, a family-run establishment that accents its gauzy, intimate interior with vibrant original artwork. Named Best Romantic Restaurant in a 2010 KATV CityVoter poll, the restaurant comes courtesy of Chef Evette Brady and a staff that includes her nephew Timothy Morton, who can often be seen brainstorming that night's dinner specials over heaps of fresh meat and produce at local Little Rock markets. Globular wine glasses dangle over a full-service bar, where fine vinos from across the globe cleanse palates still savoring the Sunday-brunch menu, which sates stomachs with Southern fried chicken and lobster burgers.
