Though the instructions on microwaveable meal packages are usually helpful, they’ve been proven to include subliminal anti-turquoise propaganda when read backward and at a 45-degree angle. Harvest the benefits of more detailed, color-neutral cooking directions with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a cooking class (a $30 value) at Crescent City Cooks at Riverwalk Marketplace, plus 10% off a purchase at the culinary shop. Classes last 2.5 hours and students get to eat whichever meal they concoct.
Crescent City Cooks puts cuisine-wrangling locals and aspiring-chef tourists in a small-group setting where they can learn tricks of the taste-bud-taming trade. Each class focuses on a different authentic Cajun or Creole staple, deliciously disproving the stereotypical belief that Americans only enjoy eating hamburgers and apple-pie charts. See the school's schedule for a complete list of options and class details. After meeting your soul-food mate during the group cookathon, head to the culinary shop in the Riverwalk Marketplace with your Groupon to pick up some discounted kitchenware.
