The Organic Kitchen - Tucson: $29 for a Three-Hour Lunch Cooking Class at The Organic Kitchen ($60 Value)

The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a three-hour lunch cooking class with The Organic Kitchen at the Mercado San Agustin on Thursdays or Fridays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. (a $60 value).

Cooking classes at The Organic Kitchen coach amateur and seasoned chefs in fresh ways to approach the preparation of noontime repasts. Proprietor Rachel Yaseen is a cooking educator, personal chef, caterer, nutrition consultant, gardener, and taste-bud owner whose background qualifies her to cast spells on mundane or unhealthy meals to morph them into enchanting, nutritious feasts. Covering a wide range of topics, such as organic basics, kid food, cooking for one, eating without gluten, South Indian basics, and wholesome yet decadent desserts, each three-hour course empowers pupils to make nutritional and lifestyle changes by introducing them to various new tips, tricks, and cooking elements to implement into everyday cooking. Eight to 10 people can sign up for each session, where each student rolls up his or her sleeves to dice and slice local, organic, and fresh ingredients before decking them in natural sweeteners and spices and feasting upon the fruits of their labor.

Sharing favorite recipes beyond typical lunch snacks, Chef Yaseen will personalize and accommodate each pupil’s dietary restrictions or fear of sprouts. Channel your inner sous chef and sign up for classes at The Organic Kitchen, and take the first steps towards turning an ordinary peanut butter and jelly sandwich into a roasted legume paté and chutney canapé.

The Organic Kitchen

Despite what owner Rachel Yaseen has discovered for herself, she knows that cooking organic, healthful meals might seem intimidating to some. At The Organic Kitchen, she works to banish those impressions and inspire students with her own enthusiasm for natural foods, whether through cooking classes or intensive workshops. “Students learn to eat outside of the industrial food chain,” noted reporter Emily Gindlesparger of Zócalo Tucson magazine, “developing instead the creativity to source from their own yards and work with ingredients available in the Southwest throughout the seasons.”

Pupils learn to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each class features only gluten-free recipes, and the sessions focus on culinary traditions from India, the Mediterranean, and other regions. Pantry makeovers go even further, helping facilitate lifestyle shifts with cooking classes and one-on-one coaching to rid kitchens of powdered hot dogs. When not educating, the chefs handcraft gluten- and soy-free Hiker-Biker bars from local honey and dates.
