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 $73, you get a four-course couples cooking class at Rosa’s Market and Deli in Post Falls, Idaho (a $145 value). This class includes instruction on the cooking and consumption of:
- Soup or salad
Rosa’s Market’s engaging instructors imbue students with a wealth of practical knowledge in a variety of gastro-centric classes. Regardless of cooking experience, students can gather around to learn the culinary secrets and approving head nods of Italian, German, Jamaican, French, American, Hawaiian, or Irish fare. Although the menu rotates based on the class, sample menu items include Italian specialties such as phyllo stuffed with artichoke and spinach, baked gnocchi with a red rustic sauce, and tiramisu, all served with a complimentary glass of wine. Alternatively, Germanic menus include sausage- and onion-stuffed mushroom caps, spaetzle smothered by caramelized onion and cheese, and german chocolate cake, all served with a complimentary glass of beer under the soft glow of the ghosts of dessert chefs past. Classes are usually held on Saturday, however, more dates and times may be added to accommodate demand. Call Rosa’s Market or visit its Facebook page to find out about upcoming classes.
