The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a cooking class from Chef Roaché at Ró Chez in Ridgeland (a $50 value). Classes are held on the second Tuesday of every month from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Having honed his techniques under the exacting palates of Heinz Enggist and Emeril Lagasse, Chef James Roaché sharpens the culinary prowess of eager foodies with fine fare and fun classes. During each session, Chef Roaché wields his epicurean skills to demonstrate various edible manipulations for note-taking novices, starting from scratch, proceeding step-by-step, and ending in long-term food coma.
Diners can sate hungry ears with the smooth melodies of a live band as Chef Roaché guides students through his New Orleans–inspired methods of roasting chicken and braising shrimp. Attendees are welcome to bring their own liquid encouragement, in the form of wine, beer, or collection of antidotes, to add to the festive atmosphere.
