Without proper cooking instruction, any meal can fall victim to common beginner errors such as not tasting as you go and forgetting to scrub the Jacuzzi before making soup in it. Ensure a flawless holiday feast this year with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a three-hour cooking class with Kelli Petri Catering in Danvers (up to a $75 value).
Drawing on its years of upscale event catering, Kelli Petri's team of chef instructors share savory wisdom with each culinarily curious student during on-site classes. Trim overweight plates and speed up your dinner prep with Healthy 30 Minute Meals, or master the most important part of eating, praying, and loving with Taste of Tuscany's rustic Italian delicacies. And just in time for the holiday season, you'll learn how to dazzle friends and relatives with cookies, chutney, and flavored butters—which make more welcome gifts than yet another edible sweater. Holiday Hors D'oeuvres will show you how to liven up your seasonal shindig with a variety of small, festive finger foods that also double as full meals during your next Christmas elf speed-dating event.
Most evening classes are BYOB to relieve phyllo dough-related inhibitions, and for groups of 10 or more, Kelli Petri can conduct your cooking class at home. So call a truce between three feuding bridge teams and get them to set aside their differences long enough to balloon-whisk brioche batter.
