Learning to cook, much like training household pets to perform tricks for spare change, is an important hallmark of growing up. Plunge into maturity with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one cooking class at Flambé Gourmet (a $60 value).
Chef Angelo Cattaneo marinates talent and sautés skills with small, hands-on cooking classes. Add moxie to meal-enders with the Fantastic Desserts class on July 10 from 2 p.m.–5 p.m. ($60), where burgeoning culinary artists learn to create mango crème brûlée, raspberry tarts with honey ice cream, and flourless chocolate cake topped with peanut-butter mousse. Aside from teaching how to fashion a masculine apron out of chain mail, the Just For Guys class on July 23 from 2 p.m.- 5 p.m. ($60) will dish out tips on preparing mushroom soup, rib-eye steaks, and raspberry cheesecake. After class ends, students can continue their culinary education at home kitchens thanks to informative handouts on recipes and techniques. Additional classes will be added to fit demand.
In summer months, Flambé Gourmet hosts BBQ cooking classes, including traditional Hawaiian recipes during Luau BBQ on July 17 and August 28. Smoke some salmon and ribs without sullying a corncob pipe during the Smoking and Grilling Class on August 14. The soon-to-be sous chefs conclude the course by grilling beef hanger steak, before pairing their three grilled meats with corresponding beers.
