Give a guy a fish, and he’ll eat for a day; teach a guy to make perfect sushi rolls, and he’ll be the culinary king of the cul de sac. Enthrone yourself at the head of an empire of edibles with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a four-course cooking class at StoneChef Caterers in historic Ybor City (a $74.85 value).
With more than 30 years of culinary experience, chef Anthony Sanschagrin arms aspiring epicureans at StoneChef Caterers with savory culinary sagacity. Each three- to four-hour class gathers a maximum of 30 people in the warm and welcoming kitchen, ensuring every student has plenty of room and ample quantities of oxygen. Students loosen up their sautéing arms with complimentary beverages and appetizers or with adult libations purchased from the kitchen’s cash bar before rolling up their sleeves and digging into their chosen classes’ food focus: sushi rolls, poultry, or specialty finger foods. Upon crafting culinary creations, classes turn into dinner parties as attendees sample their handiwork and gossip about french bread.
StoneChef Events & Catering
Chefs Anthony Sanschagrin and Matthew Beilstein fuse their culinary passions for Italian, Latin, and Asian cuisine, designing menus for special events and divulging their secrets at hands-on cooking classes. Equally capable of creating edible display pieces or full dinner buffets, the duo can forge eclectic spreads with baked lasagna, crispy beef empanadas, or sweet 'n' sour chicken.
They also share their insights by leading internationally themed cooking lessons, which allow students to try their hand at basic recipes and then taste their results afterward. Much like the number of centimeters in a mile, the menus change constantly, incorporating new recipes and accommodating students' food allergies.
