Learning to cook, like joining the circus, requires an ability to juggle tasks and maneuver flames while being pelted by popcorn and cotton candy. Add something healthier to your repertoire with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Quick & Healthy Week Night Meals cooking class at Cookology in Sterling.
The chefs of Cookology parlay the essentials of planning, budgeting, and cooking quick and healthy meals. With new classes added each month, students can pick an evening from the schedule of Quick & Healthy Week Night Meals classes and stroll into the kitchen for a two-hour course that begins with practical tips on how to plan a meal, how to find the best ingredients on a budget, how to bake dessert from scratch, and how to tell a radish from a battery. Chefs then walk students through the cooking of a full menu from scratch, ranging from a braised chicken with caramelized onions and peppers to fresh-spinach-and-arugula salad, with a sweet finale of macerated berries with chocolate crème. During the culinary clinic, technical skills, such as knife-handling, salad-preparation, and oven-braising methods receive due attention, supplying students with the know-how necessary to feed families, impress friends, and avoid guilty looks from the delivery man.
