Eating out can be difficult, as many restaurants force diners to eat with unfamiliar tools such as sporks, javelins, or telekinesis. Equip yourself for home dining with today's Groupon: for $15, you get admission to any Taste of Super Suppers event (a $15 value), which includes a tasting, a bread-braiding demo, a three-serving make-and-take entrée, and two regular side dishes and a Chocolate Lovers' Paradise dessert at Super Suppers in Perrysburg (a $30 total value). Taste of Super Suppers events are usually held once a week, every week and a half. Check the calendar for upcoming dates.
Taste of Super Suppers introduces guests to a myriad of healthy dishes and timesaving cooking techniques. Over a 60- to 90-minute class, participants gather in the store's Tuscan-themed space for a lesson on the benefits of ready-made dishes. During the session, a demonstration is given on how to blend, shape, bake, and tie a scrunchie around one of the menu's stuffed braided breads, while guests freely sample tastings of their culinary coach's most popular fare, such as spinach and feta braided breads, pecan and praline-crusted brie, and parmesan chicken in sage sauce. For the finale, attendees put together their own entrées, choosing from 12 different entrees of the month.
Staffers supply all necessary ingredients, kitchen gear, and victory anthems for the meal's five-minute preparation time. In addition to their entrées, guests also depart with two side dishes and a Chocolate Lovers' Paradise dessert. Kitchen staff, like campaigning Nobel Laureate hopefuls, raffle off guest door-prize magnets and pens—as well as a complimentary margarita or sangria (not included in this deal's total value). Guests may also peruse the store's retail stock, receiving 10% discount on all additional goods purchased during the event.
The culinary staff at Super Suppers strives to breathe life back into the American tradition of sitting down to a home-cooked meal. The handcrafted take ‘n’ bake items, which include entrees, sides, appetizers, and desserts, conveniently last in freezers for up to three months or until evicted to make room for hibernating snowmen. Ready-to-heat basil pork chops with caesar penne or bacon-wrapped chicken breasts with cream cheese save time on prep, and a variety of gluten-free, dairy-free, and heart-healthy items offer tasty meals that meet all sorts of dietary restrictions. Instructors also supply ingredients, gear, and know-how during Kids in the Kitchen and Taste of Super Suppers classes that teach participants how to create simple and tasty meals at home.
