Cooking lessons give students survival skills for today's fast-paced world and also tomorrow's faster-paced world ruled by sentient vegetables. Stockpile culinary moves with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a Chefs to the Celebrities cooking class, in which students prepare and then eat a five-course meal, at Food Body Me, valid at the locations on Mission and Dolores Streets (a $200 value). This Groupon may also be applied toward any nutrition cooking class.
Food Body Me’s culinary maestros, winning over high-profile palates with their talented foodsmithing, lead the Chefs to the Celebrities class, which bolsters the cooking acumen of participants with 2.5 hours of hands-on meal creation. Each of Food Body Me’s workstations accommodates 10 pupils, a host, and a chef who bring their heads together to prepare five-course meals that in the past have included Italian-inspired spaghetti squash and Thai shrimp wraps with spicy peanut dipping sauce. Food-forging protégés converge locally grown, organic ingredients to concoct and devour bountiful feasts that are more eco-friendly than a tree factory emitting cloud kisses. Herbivores and health-conscious cooks may enroll in vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free classes to sap up culinary expertise to impress friends, family, and skeptical pots and pans.
