What You'll Get
Give a guy a fish, and he'll eat for a day; teach a guy to make perfect sushi rolls, and he'll be the culinary king of the cul de sac. Grant yourself the power of grub making with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one cooking class from Artepicure Cooking School in Somerville. This Groupon is valid toward any of Artepicure's $85 cooking classes, or the value can be applied toward a private cooking class for six people or more (private classes are $85 per person). Buy up to two Groupons to double your culinary coursework.
Artepicure spreads the skills of cooking to Massachusetts microwave-dependents with an array of hands-on cooking classes that emphasize how the techniques of professional chefs can be transferred to home kitchens. Satisfy rabid Roman herbivores with Mediterranean Vegetarian, featuring meatless summer soups, spaghetti, and a crêpe cake in its curriculum, or meal-mallet gastronomic glockenspiels with Authentic German Cooking, touching upon Teutonic treats such as potato pancakes and pork schnitzel. Artepicure's Knife Skills class teaches slicing, dicing self-defense against invading tomatoes and radishes, whereas French Brasserie Dinner teaches students classic Parisian fare such as onion soup au gratin, mussels Normandy, and beef burgundy. At the end of the class, students will dig into their culinary creations, an academic output far tastier than the edible diorama of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand from third grade. New classes are added monthly, so check the schedule to see what nourishing knowledge waits in the weeks ahead.
Artepicure cooking classes are taught primarily by Mark DesLauriers, an acclaimed chef with domestic, international, and interstellar cooking experience. Artepicure emphasizes sustainability in its cooking courses, using locally sourced meat, seafood, and produce as often as possible. Save delivery guys and gals the trouble of accessing your mountaintop fortress, and instead become your own source for sustenance with an Artepicure cooking class.
