Give a guy a fish, and he'll eat for a day; teach a guy to make perfect sushi rolls, and he'll be the culinary king of the cul de sac. Enjoy a similar ascent to the cooking crown with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a cooking class and wine pairing from Organic Creation (a $75 value). In order to enjoy a wine pairing with your class, you must be at least 21 years old.
With Chef Silje Grayston bringing Norwegian know-how and years of professional kitchen experience to her instructing, Organic Creation will ease first-time food fashioners into the Kraken-inhabited waters of cooking with one of three cooking classes, all accompanied by special wine pairings. In the Italian cooking class ($60 per person, $75 with wine tasting), you'll spend 2.5 hours delving into pizza and pasta traditions in order to fashion meals that will likely involve cheese, tomato sauce, and cheese. With the 2.5-hour tapas cooking class ($60 per person, $75 with wine tasting), you'll distribute your energies among smaller Spanish dishes, or tapas, which are traditionally passed around the dinner table for communal consumption between bands of rogue heartbreakers, while in the two-hour Healthy Eating, Healthy Living cooking class ($50 per person, $75 with wine tasting), you'll usurp the iron-fisted rule of junk food by learning how to make meals that are delicious, diet smart, and democratic.
Organic Creation uses all-natural, organic food from local vendors whenever possible in order to achieve maximum healthitude and good-tastingness. Food costs are covered with this deal, as are sporadic outbursts of "Bam!" and "Now, that's the good stuff!" while you cook. Venues for the cooking classes vary, so be sure to contact Silje (pronounced "Celia") to schedule your class and determine the ideal setting for adventures in do-it-yourself dining.
