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 (a $69.95 value).
With more than 30 years of culinary experience, chef Anthony Sanschagrin arms aspiring epicureans with savory culinary sagacity. Before students embark on their edible adventure, they can loosen up their sautéing arm with the complimentary round of beverages and appetizers or with an adult libation purchased from the kitchen's cash bar.
Each class, from the April 7 session focusing on springtime fare to the May 19 study in sushi, is limited to a maximum of 30 people, ensuring every student has plenty of room and ample quantities of oxygen. Classes are held in StoneChef's top-notch kitchen and last between three and four hours.
Until it's acceptable and legal to stash a top-rated chef in the pantry under the steel-cut oatmeal, people are responsible for stuffing their own stomach. After taking cooking lessons, Groupon holders will be able to cook extravagant meals worthy of being the centerfold in Human Food magazine.
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.
