Cooks teach by using a hands-on approach, which is more effective than mailing students a box filled with flour, eggs, some matches, and a note that says "cookies?" Get your hands dirty with this Groupon.
$49.50 for One Admission to Public Mix It Up Cooking Party (Up to $80 Value)
Mix It Up cooking parties invite culinary enthusiasts to explore Bespoke Cuisine’s commercial kitchen under the guidance of a professional chef. After snacking on some complimentary cheese and grabbing a BYOB drink, guests choose a station, where they will be tasked with creating a specific menu item and practicing the necessary cooking techniques. Menus change constantly, but upcoming parties will cover topics such as international appetizers and modern Mexican food. Once amateur chefs have completed their dishes and roamed around the kitchen to observe their peers at work, they assemble in the dining room to feast upon the spoils of their efforts. Following the event, Bespoke emails the recipes so guests can recreate the dishes at home. See the current cooking party schedule.
Creativity, collaboration, and carbs. The owners of Bespoke Cuisine advocate all three. According to their company manifesto, they also believe “eating well is a life skill,” “a little fat never hurt anyone,” and “anyone can cook delicious food.” The staff expounds on these and other company principles at public and private cooking parties, which give visitors a glimpse inside Bespoke’s commercial kitchen on Randolph Street's Restaurant Row without stowing away in a gravy vat. During these BYOB events, chefs help guests construct their own meals and teach basic cooking skills before the group retires to the dining room to eat the fruits of their labor. For those who prefer a hands-off experience, Bespoke also caters events or hosts them in a chic private-event space.
