What You'll Get
Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing “Stairway to Heaven” on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with today’s Groupon from Chef Amadeus, valid at homes in Duval County. Choose between the following options:
- For $89, you get a private cooking lesson at home for two people (a $200 value), including groceries and a personalized menu developed with the chef.
- For $299, you get a Door Knock session at home for eight people (a $600 value). The Door Knock session includes:
- Meal preparation and limited instruction for eight people
- Custom recipes featuring the chef’s Southern Passion salt-free spice line; customers responsible for providing food
Winner of Food Network’s Extreme Chef Mexican Showdown, Chef Amadeus excels at crafting global cuisine influenced by his travels with the U.S. Navy and the instruction gleaned in his mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. Chef Amadeus and his students collaborate on a two-person menu for the lesson. Participants discuss ingredients and spices, cooking strengths and weaknesses, and kitchen fears, such as the fear of chopping dense vegetables or laying tablecloths on particularly aggressive tables. The chef shares his ingredients and cooking techniques for a professionally home-cooked meal.
During the Door Knock session, groups of eight attempt to recreate the pressure and dramatic music of the Food Network challenge as Chef Amadeus scours refrigerators and pantries for ingredients to transform into a home-cooked feast. Armed with his own Southern Passion spices, the chef whips up a meal fit for royalty or a democratically elected Parliament while answering questions and elucidating some simple culinary techniques. Groupon customers may add additional guests for either cooking lessons or Door Knock sessions for a fee of $100 per hour.
