People naturally feel romantic when they’re bathed in mood lighting, whether it’s the twinkle of fireflies, a full moon in a starry sky, or a slow, glowing flow of lava oozing through a downtown thoroughfare. Heat up the mood with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a 2.5-hour sensual cooking class for two at Appetite For Seduction (a $240 value). This Groupon is valid for one of the following classes:
- Insatiable Italian
- From France with Love<p>
Culinary-romance expert Shani Delamor explores the links between food and love in classes that were named among the Seven Best Cooking Classes in New York and New Jersey by CBS New York. The Insatiable Italian class stimulates the senses with pizza margherita crostini garnished with fresh basil, a luscious pasta studded with chicken and peas, and a dark and spicy chocolate fondue that inspires creative uses such as playing tic-tac-toe on bed sheets. Alternatively, duos mimic a traditional French wedding meal by jointly preparing and nibbling on skinned salmon alongside roasted asparagus and pomegranate-poached pears.
Both the French and Italian classes plumb the depths of amorous cuisine by discussing the history of romantic dishes, what foods act as aphrodisiacs, and how to carve love sonnets into a bar of chocolate. As students sip glasses of wine and snuggle up to their partner, they study and assist Shani in the preparation of each dish.
