Chefs wear big, puffy hats for two reasons—to signify their rank in the kitchen hierarchy and to hide the signature spice they invented by mixing cinnamon with gravel. Learn kitchen secrets with this Groupon.
$19 for a Cooking Workshop for One (Up to $39 Value)
In 90-minute classes, students learn how to prepare a three-course menu focused on a specific culture’s cuisine—such as Cajun or Thai—or on light and healthy dishes. Classes also cover basic kitchen skills such as chopping onions and herbs, creating a proper chantilly cream, and preparing fish. Hungry chefs can purchase an additional set of ingredients for $15 each to make another meal for a friend, or bring an additional participant for $30 ($15 for their ingredients, $15 for their station and instruction). After sessions, participants take their new meals home, heat if necessary, and serve. See list of workshops.
Cook & Go
Cook & Go’s chefs step out from their hidden kitchens and teach participants the skills necessary to prepare, cook, and serve a variety of quality three-course meals. Each meal centers on a theme such as Peruvian cuisine and light and tasty eats. Preparing each dish under the watchful eye of their instructor, participants then take the cooked meal home, heat if necessary, and serve. During each session, participants earn badges called COOKS, which denote mastery of a certain vital kitchen skill, such as chopping, dicing, or mincing. The New York location represents Cook & Go’s first foray on American soil, though it already boasts 14 successful locations throughout France.
