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 freedom-hungry lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a three-hour cooking experience for two at the Chef’s Club cooking studio at Aroma Mediterranean Restaurant (a $200 value).

Cooking experiences include:

  • Four-course meal
  • Glass of wine or soft drink
  • Appetizers
  • Aprons and hats to be worn during the event
  • Certificate of completion

Sessions for 10–30 people can be booked in three-hour blocks from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Chefs at Aroma Mediterranean Restaurant’s Chef’s Club cooking studio equip budding gourmands to handle food with finesse during hands-on cooking experiences. Three-hour culinary odysseys kick off with a tutorial on safe food-handling practices, knife technique, and how to avoid the emotional manipulation of onions. Then, chefs deploy guests to their prep stations, stocked with the raw ingredients for butternut-squash soup and mandarin-orange salad. Culinary gurus oversee guests as they stuff a succulent chicken breast with feta cheese and spinach, and the dessert team corrals fresh berries and orange-creme mousse in a flaky phyllo fence. After sessions, guests devour creations as instructors critique teamwork and technique. Kitchen masters then tote home an Aroma Cooking Studio certificate, which they can proudly frame or fold into a chef’s hat.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Aroma Mediterranean Restaurant a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.

Aroma Mediterranean Restaurant

As Felipe Gomes's restaurant was being built, he happened across a boarded-up room downstairs. Though the 600-square-foot room, dusty with a half-century of disuse, contained only boxes of aged financial records, Felipe instantly saw the space's potential. The drywall and plaster were torn down to reveal yellow-brick walls and walnut beams, which became the foundation for Aroma Mediterranean Restaurant's wine cellar. Now the space is fully remodelled; beyond a doorway entangled with grapevines, a vault built into the floor displays 220 bottles of wine visible through heavy-tempered glass. Nearly 100 more bottles of wine shelved along the walls vie for tasters' attentions with flashy magic tricks and labels boasting various international origins.

Diners sift through a menu equally inspired by international flavours. Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and French recipes transform fresh seafood, lamb, and steak into entrees steeped in inventive sauces. Servers can deliver meals in a courtyard-esque dining room or a private room where video conferencing enables patrons to dine with family or etiquette instructors halfway around the world. Guests can also learn to re-create their meal at home by visiting the eatery's on-site cooking studio, whose classes demonstrate the art of the four-course meal.
