Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing “Stairway to Heaven” on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with this Groupon.

Hot Woks Cool Sushi
The chefs at Hot Woks Cool Sushi slice and coil rolls and sashimi at four Chicago locations. California and tuna-avocado makimono rolls join signature rolls such as the jumbo-size Akira with tuna and salmon or the Dragon, which crisps its shrimp tempura with its own fiery breath. Hot Woks Cool Sushi also hosts sushi-making classes, which include tasting menus, samplings of sake and wine, and chef supervision as guests create their own rolls.
