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 $50, you get a BYOB cooking class from Santa Barbara Premiere Catering for one person (a $100 value). In addition to holding on-site classes, the chefs at Premiere Catering travel to residences throughout Santa Barbara County and Ventura County for in-home cooking classes (requires a minimum of four students). The location for the class is determined when making the reservation.
The chefs of Santa Barbara Premiere Catering impart cooking know-how during 90-minute classes that draw inspiration from diverse culinary backgrounds. During the lessons, apprentices paint comestible frescos replete with appetizers, entrees, lackadaisical cherubs, and desserts from one of several international culinary styles. In-home students can choose the lesson's theme and date, and on-site classes are scheduled with predetermined dishes from Greek, Indian, Santa Barbara barbecue, or other cuisines. Classes include all materials and instruction needed to help students transform primary ingredients into dishes such as Moroccan butterflied lamb with tomatoes, Spanish seafood bouillabaisse, or Pan-American Twinkies. After pulling their meals from the oven or the grasp of intrusive neighbors, students can sip on their own beer or wine while sampling their creations and asking questions of the chefs.
