Like learning to juggle, learning to cook requires patience, a distraction-free environment, and the ability to handle multiple eggplants at once. Become the ringmaster of your kitchen with today’s Groupon to The Chef Next Door. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a BYOB cooking demonstration for one (a $50 value).
- For $50, you get a BYOB cooking demonstration for two (a $100 value).
The Chef Next Door’s owner and culinary captain as well as the executive chef at the Marketplace Cafe, Margaret Hale elucidates the art of cooking through themed cooking demonstrations. Each demonstration at the chef’s gourmet kitchen is bolstered by take-home recipes, offering up to 20 students at a time the opportunity to recreate dishes at home or to use them as blueprints for crafting more effective weapons for food fights. The topic of each session rotates seasonally and often, and each demonstration rounds off with dinner-size portions ready to silence the most boisterous of hunger pangs. Classes are BYOB, so students may choose to bring a favored libation for washing down savory fare and rinsing fingertips in between courses. Check the calendar for upcoming offerings.
