Pasta is a versatile food, as evidenced by chefs who use lasagna noodles as bed sheets and lace their shoes with strands of spaghetti. Enjoy nonsartorial sustenance with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get admission to a Basic Pasta Making Techniques class at Cooking Fools (an $84 value, including taxes).

The kitchen kings at Cooking Fools teach groups of students to make fresh, light pastas from scratch. During a 2.5-hour class on Basic Pasta Making Techniques, an experienced instructor walks noodle newbies through the fundamentals, including simmering fresh sauces and stretching into macaroni-shaped yoga poses. At a casual dinner following the class, patrons dine on the fruits of their labor like yule-log lumberjacks after a hard day’s work, then package plentiful leftovers to take home. The establishment also stocks its store with soft drinks, wine, and beer, (not included in today’s Groupon) which can be purchased to lubricate lips throughout the session.

Cooking Fools

Many cooks would insist that a trusted recipe is the foundation of a good meal, but at Cooking Fools, it’s the first thing to go. Their cooking classes unshackle pupils from their cookbooks and encourage creativity in the kitchen. Their chefs exercise the same artistic license over the meals they assemble for cooking parties. Adhering to three main principles—quality ingredients, good style, and common sense—the staff crafts healthy food, decreasing saturated fats but never flavor. Many of their entrees radiate global inspiration, and are arranged in a modern, artistic way that doesn’t outshine flavors.
