Families, couples, and curiously independent boxcar children are welcomed into Cucina Bambini, where the experienced instructors encourage the joyful side of the kitchen—the one that hosts the most food fights. Schedule a course to expand your culinary skill set or to simply let loose with a slotted spoon; either way, today's deal provides an opportunity for battered chefs to rise up even if their cake does not.
Six Yelpers give Cucina Bambini four stars:

Many people learn better when they feel comfortable, which is why Cucina Bambini designed their workspace to resemble a family kitchen instead of a clinical wall of burners and ovens. Black-and-white tiles cover the walls behind rustic cabinets and ceramic spice vessels. Instructors work with ingredients atop a central island to share their passion for cooking with students of all ages. Children can learn about culture as well as cuisine in Around the World classes that focus on recipes for tandoori chicken or Chinese siu mai dumplings. Adults may mix fresh pasta dough and form fettuccine by hand or learn how to prepare sushi rice and use it in fresh rolls or nigiri. During date-night classes, couples prepare a four-course dinner that they will eventually devour or smear across each other's faces.
