Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a knife-techniques class at Portland’s Culinary Workshop (a $45 value).

Professional chefs and self-described "sassy babes” Melinda Casady and Susana Holloway teach home-cookers how to save time in the kitchen with their knife-techniques class. In an airy, light-filled classroom, groups of 12–24 cutters learn how to hold and use blades properly, which tools are essential and which aren’t, and how to trick messy pies into slicing themselves. Over the course of the three-hour session, students gain months' worth of kitchen confidence through knife-mastering techniques and the levity from the instructors' jokes. A mental bag of minute-saving tricks also comes with the tutorial, including methods for keeping kitchen scythes sharp. Classes are offered on a variety of different days, including Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings; check the calendar to secure the knowledge needed to slice up a peach without ruining its fuzzy coat.

Melinda is a fantastic instructor- bursting with energy, equipped with a wide variety of experiences and knowledge {in my book, fully qualifying her as a cognoscente- my favorite people from whom to learn}, down to earth and wise when it comes to what is necessary in kitchen equipment {a total bonus}, and a fabulous sense of humor!! I appreciated every bit of the guidance I received from this intro class- both the teacher driven methods portion and the student driven, hands-on practice portion. Thanks so much, gus
