Cooking lessons impart survival skills for today's fast-paced world, and also tomorrow's faster-paced world ruled by sentient vegetables. Stockpile culinary moves with this Groupon: for $25, you get a three-hour cooking class with dinner at Pan Africa Grill (a $50 value).
At Pan Africa Grill, African-cuisine enthusiasts adopt authentic techniques in a choice of vegetarian or omnivorous cooking classes held on assorted Sundays and Tuesdays. Led by the head chef of Pike Place Market’s Pan Africa Restaurant & Bar and various guest chefs, both workshops boast insight into African classics such as South African wine and injera, the stretchy flatbread that ensconces traditional dishes and bounces children into the air on African trampolines. During meat-eating classes, pupils concoct and then feast upon hearty staples such as beef tibs and meaty sambusa, whereas vegetarian novices make feasts replete with shiro wot—a chickpea stew. As three-hour classes and subsequent repasts draw to a close, students can purchase a cookbook ($14.95) onsite to accompany their newfound culinary wisdom.
