Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Learn to whip up inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a single Simply the Best Cooking Class (a $40 value) at Culinary Enterprises in Signal Hill.
Culinary Enterprises stuffs the noggins of curious culinarians with kitchen craftsmanship know-how. During two-hour introductory sessions of its Simply the Best Cooking Class—held on various afternoons and evenings throughout the week—Culinary Enterprises' instructors do away with rote recipe memorization and outdated knife juggling procedures to demonstrate techniques to cook classic and modern dishes. Classes cover a variety of themes and styles, with cooks unlocking the secrets to spruce up mainstay meals from breakfast through dinner (depending on the course), building delectably sound dessert structures, or baking treats that grant dogs the power of speech.
Each of Culinary Enterprises' Simply the Best Cooking Class sessions are taught to small groups of 10 students or less. In order to give Culinary Enterprises time to prepare lesson plans and build piñatas filled with chef's hats, first-time class participants should schedule their dining room debut at least 48 hours ahead of time.
