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 three-hour African cooking course, a spring special offered at Spice of Africa (a $100 value). Ethiopian classes are held Thursdays from 6–9 p.m., and Kenyan classes are held Saturdays from 5–8 p.m.

Spice of Africa enriches patrons with a one-of-a-kind cultural experience, coupling African food-prep techniques with rich culinary customs. The three-hour courses, taught by an Ethiopian and a Kenyan instructor, turn fresh ingredients into savory meals as mouths are transported to East Africa and hands are transmogrified into adroit chefing appendages. Each class is supplemented with information about the mealtime customs as well as the cultural context of the cuisine. The Kenyan class utilizes different flavors and spices prevalent in Kenyan food such as curry powders and flatbreads to shake drowsy taste buds awake, while the Ethiopian course and its spicy fare pry open palates to the gastronomic wonderland of East Africa. Craft traditional staples such as Kenyan chapati, Ethiopian injera bread, and thick meaty stews.

Each course is accentuated with swinging sub-Saharan music to facilitate rhythmic spice blending. Bop your head, shimmy your shoulders, or roast with abandon as the infectious beats compete with your watering mouth for sensory attention.

  • We had a great time in this class, and have been meaning to do cooking classes together for some time. Can’t wait for the next one! – BurgerDogBoy

The cooking class was difficult to get into, but a LOT of fun once we got in and got to class.
