New cooks often make simple mistakes, such as confusing salt with sugar and feeding fish beer, instead of battering them with it. Keep supper sober with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one cooking class at Bread and Yoga in Inwood (a $40 value).
Bread and Yoga's Healthy Cooking 101 Series acquaints avid and aspiring food fashioners with methods for constructing quick and easy healthful meals at home. Classes are capped at 14 to ensure the most one-on-one bonding time between meal and maker, and are offered on Thursdays and Fridays in May from 7 p.m.–9 p.m. People tired of celebrating geography by keeping a continually spinning globe in every room of their house can relish in the regionally themed classes: May 5 and 6 teach Cinco de Mayo cuisine, May 12 and 13 delve into healthy Italian fare, and May 19 and 20 instruct aspiring miso mavens in Asian-inspired meals. One of the instructors, Marcela, gained the culinary acumen to teach wayward choppers through a certification in integrative nutrition from Teachers College at Columbia University and from 10 years experience teaching healthy cooking classes in the United States and abroad.
