Cooking, like ballroom dancing, walking uphill in the snow, and writing in cursive on one's digital tablet device, is a tradition often lost on today's generation. Reclaim kitchen rites with today's Groupon from Professional Chef Services. Choose between two options:
• For $75, you get one in-home introductory cooking class for two people (a $150 value).
• For $225, you get a series of three in-home introductory cooking classes for two people (a $450 value).
A French Culinary Institute graduate with a wealth of cooking, catering, and educating experience, Chef Tony Cacace teaches culinary craft techniques with Professional Chef Services' in-kitchen cooking lessons. Fledgling chefs begin the first two-hour class learning the ins and outs of kitchen equipment by studying knife skills, pot and pan preferences, and correct decorum when speaking to the ghost of George Washington's personal chef. After mastering cutting techniques and basic egg preparation, the lesson will culminate in the creation of a full breakfast, customized to individual tastes and dietary requirements.
Those who choose the full three-class sautéing scholarship will sculpt skills in purchasing and preparing meat, concocting sauces, cooking rice and potatoes, and forging dough from scratch. Similar to bringing home a new baby, each eager gourmand will receive a detailed instruction booklet and email contacts to ensure any remaining questions are answered. With the exception of your kitchen's stove and an oven or toaster oven, Professional Chef Services furnishes all materials for the courses.
