Marie was so fun and entertaining and the food delicious. My friends are still talking about what a great time they had and want to do it again soon!

What You'll Get


The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of freedom-hungry lobsters. Learn how to navigate this danger zone with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $19 for an appetizer-and-tapas group cooking class at Kitchen Thyme (a $78 value)
  • $39 for an in-home appetizer-and-tapas cooking class for two (a $156 value)
  • $69 for an in-home appetizer-and-tapas cooking class for four (a $312 value)

During a two-hour appetizer-and-tapas cooking class, Chef Marie demonstrates how to prepare four small plates, such as shrimp po' boy sliders with aioli, fried green beans, and herbed pan-seared scallops. She also leads a brief lesson on cheeses and a wine tasting, teaching students how to pair their edibles with complementary flavors. For group classes at Kitchen Thyme, she chooses which four appetizers to prepare in advance. Alternatively, customers who opt for the in-home class option can pick which dishes they'd like to make.

Group classes will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on October 25, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on November 9, and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on November 16.
