What You'll Get


Like learning to juggle, learning to cook requires patience, a distraction-free environment, and the ability to handle multiple eggplants at once. Become the ringmaster of your kitchen with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a 90-minute organic cooking class from The Organic Kitchen, held at the Whole Foods Market on East Speedway Boulevard (a $60 value).

The professional instructors of The Organic Kitchen teach students to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts during organic cooking classes that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each 90-minute, hands-on session imparts knowledge on an array of culinary subjects, with themes that might include Indian cuisine, soups and stews, chocolate, and southwest cuisine. Students gain a command of the basics as well as how to shop organic on a budget and incorporate healthy ingredients into their meals without simply sticking a broccoli cupcake atop every cupcake.

At the end of class, participants can sample their aromatic artwork, all of which is gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly. Additionally, some classes are followed by a grocery-store tour that introduces clients to new foods, demonstrates how to read labels and shop on a budget, and helps them to finally make peace with the belligerent rutabagas in the produce aisle. Classes will be held at a variety of daytime and evening hours Monday–Friday; students should register online.

About The Organic Kitchen


Despite what owner Rachel Yaseen has discovered for herself, she knows that cooking organic, healthful meals might seem intimidating to some. At The Organic Kitchen, she works to banish those impressions and inspire students with her own enthusiasm for natural foods, whether through cooking classes or intensive workshops. “Students learn to eat outside of the industrial food chain,” noted reporter Emily Gindlesparger of Zócalo Tucson magazine, “developing instead the creativity to source from their own yards and work with ingredients available in the Southwest throughout the seasons.”

Pupils learn to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each class features only gluten-free recipes, and the sessions focus on culinary traditions from India, the Mediterranean, and other regions. Pantry makeovers go even further, helping facilitate lifestyle shifts with cooking classes and one-on-one coaching to rid kitchens of powdered hot dogs. When not educating, the chefs handcraft gluten- and soy-free Hiker-Biker bars from local honey and dates.
