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. Crown yourself with culinary expertise with today's deal: for $145, you get an in-home cooking class plus ingredients for up to four people from The Chef Next Door (up to a $300 value).
Chef Margaret Hale, a graduate of Culinard, the Culinary Institute of Virginia College, packs a grocery cart full of experience as she teaches wannabe Wolfgangs and baby Batalis the tricks for radiating kitchen brilliance like the melody of a freshly tuned didgeridoo. The Chef Next Door makes cooking approachable by coming to your home with a class customized to accommodate personal preferences and any dietary restrictions. Using her ingredients and your cookware, Chef Hale will execute a one- to two-hour interactive workshop for you and up to three others. Jump in on the action like a stage diver at a knitting convention, learning the full potential of your own kitchen equipment and appliances, then bask in the warm, appetizing afterglow of your hard work.
At the end of the class, Chef Hale will provide newfound chefs with recipes and directions for accomplishing the same professional results on their own, similar to the end of a trebuchet-building course. Through your experience, Chef Hale's passionate instruction and attention to detail will be the icing on the casserole. Call ahead for a free consultation.
