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.

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.

Food is excellent

The food was delicious! I wasn't thrilled with the pick up time/date/place, but understand the limitations. The meals fed three of us well, but do not see how they are for 4-6 people. Groupon price was good and would do again at that price. BTW, ordered a cake and it was amazing!
