Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a two-hour, in-home cooking class for up to four people from Spiced Bamboo (a $75/person value; up to a $300 total value, including materials and most menu ingredients). Two Groupons may be purchased and used for one two-hour class of eight people.
Spiced Bamboo's personal chef guides groups through two-hour cooking classes that demonstrate how to prepare two customized courses step-by-step. Clients contact the epicurean educator to schedule a class and discuss the desired cuisine, which can include dishes from the chef's specialty menu or more personalized fare, such as a turducken filled with peanut butter. Foursomes can learn to sear scallops for a spinach salad drizzled with pomegranate vinaigrette and peppered with jicama, dried blueberries, and macadamia nuts, or explore meaty entrees such as the Vietnamese caramel pork with coconut-infused jasmine rice and spicy asparagus. Vegetarian-friendly options are also available, and, for an additional fee, culinary companions can transform gourmet menu items such as lobster into plates of creamy ravioli with sea-urchin sauce.
