What You'll Get
In Les Misérables II: Final Justice, Jean Valjean is arrested for committing an even greater crime against French law: applying margarine to another man’s moustache during dinner without asking first. Feast around the proper tableside etiquette of France with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a four-hour French cooking class for one person (a $150 value) at Edge of Seattle Specialty Cooking School in Woodinville wine country.
The Edge of Seattle Specialty Cooking School offers a variety of hands-on cooking classes, wine tastings, and catering services for fledgling Francophiles. Join Chef Jim Bradley on a four-hour gastronomic adventure during the Exploring French Classical Cuisine class, and learn how to prepare classic three-course dinners from the first course of moules marinieres to a dessert of mousse aux chocolate. You'll also master classical French entrees such as poulet oscar packed with crab, asparagus, béarnaise sauce, and baked fennel with comte cheese, or the existentialist roasted pork loin, which is savory but ultimately meaningless in the face of one's own mortality. With today’s deal, gastronauts will also enjoy 25% off the purchase of one future cooking class.
Classes are held on weekdays.
- Then we began the cooking class, which far exceeded my expectations. It was a slow pace, relaxing, enjoyable, memorable evening, and I will continue to recommend this to all of my friends and colleagues. – nicole04uw, Citysearch
- I enjoyed my room but more imporantly participated in a cooking class with other guests. The host and chef were great and we had a first class cooking instruction and subsequent meal. – BedandBreakfast.com reviewer who stayed on 09/2008

About Edge of Seattle Cooking
The staff at Auberge de Seattle ushers guests onto its lush, 5 acres of wooded land for gustatory experiences ranging from simple, peaceful relaxation to a romantic and refined experience in this culinary destination. An extensive roster of chefs welcome students to six-hour, hands-on cooking classes, ongoing class series, and Michelin-starred bake sales. Classes instruct students in a range of skills, from basic kitchen competency to how to whip up haute cuisine, and many courses focus on classic French cooking methods. Owner and Proprietor Nancy Gates-Douglas developed her love for food and wine growing up in Morocco and the Loire Valley of France, and these culinary roots spurred her to create the inn as a place for celebrating French regional cuisine and Washington-state wines. The inn itself combines the provincial with the modern by incorporating such contemporary touches as wireless Internet into its bedrooms and banquet areas, which brim with French antiques and fluffy, decorative lap dogs.
