Famous artists claim that they learn the most about themselves after ingesting and digesting their creations. Explore this method of self-assessment in culinary style with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a three-hour cooking workshop (an $85 value) at the Epicurean School of Culinary Arts location on South Clementine Street in Anaheim.
Founded in 1985, Epicurean gives choppers with any level of chops a hands-on lesson led by professional chefs. During Cupcakes Couture, students create stylish cupcakes, such as chocolate cherry cordial and strawberry with brown-sugar crème fraiche icing. For those looking to expand their gastronomic cultural horizons, the Moroccan course can enable budding chefs to prepare an exotic feast of dishes, such as grilled lamb keftas with mint dressing and chocolate olive-oil cake with orange blossom syrup. During the Sauces course, pesto unclumps and au jus is finally translated (spoiler alert: it means "oh, you!"). Cutlery connoisseurs can improve the fluidity of each slice and dice with the Knife Skills course, instructing students on proper blade-handling techniques and myriad cutting methods.
Epicurean provides all of the food and supplies for each class, but students should bring their own apron to keep clothes spotless and a pen for playing games of tic-tac-toe on freshly made soufflés. For health and safety purposes, students are required to dress in kitchen-safe long pants and toe-shielding rubber-soled shoes and to tie back long hair. After a course, culinary artists will be equipped to decorate windowsills with freshly frosted cupcakes and dominate their next workplace cook-off or no-bake battle. Check out the schedule for available classes and times.
