What You'll Get
Like learning to juggle, learning to cook requires patience, a distraction-free environment, and the ability to handle multiple eggplants at once. Become the ringmaster of your kitchen with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour Healthy Cooking class at Classic Cooking in Scottsdale (a $100 value). Classes are offered twice a month on Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. beginning September 10.
Classic Cooking's faculty of foodists splits class time between professional instruction and casual education, allowing students to have fun as they master the fundamentals of fine cookery. Chef Adam Sanchez pilots the Healthy Cooking class through a hands-on journey focused on the incorporation of fresh, seasonal ingredients and expounding upon healthy cooking techniques such as not lighting oneself on fire. Afterward, the entire class gathers to partake in the fruits of their fiery labor, sharing the meal and bantering about who has the best rondelle arm.
At Classic Cooking, the clean, metallic sheen of professional kitchen apparatuses reflect the overhead lighting onto polished counters and work surfaces, and long dining tables await the finished comestibles and camaraderie. Groupon holders who enjoy their health-focused class should be sure to check out the calendar, which showcases Classic Cooking's many other workshops for professionals, amateurs, and time travelers.
