Many classes are $60, but the $30 value of this Groupon may be used toward a less expensive class, so check the schedule and click on a class to see its price.

Owner, instructor, and culinary savant Christine Wansleben was recently featured in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, and her tandoori-spiced squab was runner-up for dish of the year in Richmond magazine. She brings her dietary deftness to Mise En Place, an interactive cooking school for nourishment neophytes and veteran meal molders alike. In addition to teaching, Christine oversees a coterie of cooks plus sommelier Carol Colby, who leads group courses that run between two-and-a-half and three hours. Dinner in a Dash with Chef Favi Roop ($60) is ideal for beginners or athletes who want a meal they can eat while sprinting 100 meters, and Exploring the Flavors of Turkey with Chef Sally Schmidt ($60) finally frees the Thanksgiving centerpiece from its usual fetters of gravy, mashed potatoes, and marbles. For those who prefer meats grilled, charred, or hastily tattooed as a result of a carelessly accepted party dare, Chef Matthew Bedwell's Extreme Tailgating class ($60) reveals secrets of the perfect truck-bed spread.

Mise En Place's friendly, professional staff offer practical, hands-on knowledge for budding cooks and the cooked-for who love them, plus a virtually limitless storehouse of hilarious answers to questions of how many chefs it takes to perform various tasks. Great for friendly ventures into culinary territory or first dates destined for family-lore anthologies, Mise En Place is Richmond's best bet for blessedly edible learning.

Mise En Place Cooking School

At Mise En Place Cooking School, a staff of culinary artists and sommeliers teach visitors how to navigate the kitchen during an array of cooking classes. Aspiring foodsmiths follow their instructor’s lead as they get their hands messy slicing, dicing, and mixing fresh ingredients to build tasty meals in a variety of disciplines. The culinary wizards demonstrate easy, straight-forward approaches to fixing dishes and robust sauces, teaching students that knives are best used for chopping, instead of throwing at people strapped to spinning wheels. The crew also hosts parties for both adults and kids, during which participants craft meals to share in the school's bright, airy studio, or at an off-site location, such as the celebrant’s home.
