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. Find out why your soufflé always falls or learn the dark art of broasting with today's Groupon: for $50, you get one cooking class for two people and receive a $20 credit toward cooking items in-store (up to a $118 value) at The Stocked Pot and Company in Winston-Salem. Classes are valid for any class that is $49 or less.
Classes at The Stocked Pot cater to all experience levels and epicurean desires, each led by a professional chef. With today's Groupon in your tandem apron, you and a friend, loved one, or Warren G. Harding mannequin can choose from any individual class on The Stocked Pot's calendar that costs $49 or less (pricing is per person). Wok cooking classes impart the essence of stir-fried foods, ending with a feast including pineapples with bourbon served over ice cream. Other specialized classes include instruction on slow cooked ribs, homemade Italian pasta, and the art of not catching on fire. At the end of each class, students get to taste the day's resulting treats. Space in each class is limited, so call ahead to reserve your spot and mention your Groupon.
With $20 toward cooking products in-store, students itching to implement culinary expertise at home can bake up to three dishes at once with a three-tier fold rack ($14.25) or pack Chantal individual pie dishes ($8.99) with fruit and crust to fill sweet-toothed spaces. Today's Groupon arms you with knowledge and gastronomic gear to save you from embarrassing Thanksgivings, disastrous dinners with in-laws, and foolhardy tamale-making face-offs.
The Stocked Pot and Company
While not managing multiple restaurants, The Stocked Pot and Company Executive Chef Don McMillan has cultivated local TV stardom by hosting a cooking show on NBC from 1986 to 2002. He later appeared on channels as diverse as Hallmark and Sundance, and Turner South and Fox Sports South, with celebrities including Dave Chappelle and Maya Angelou. His son, President, owner, and on-staff wine expert, Andrew, has acquired culinary knowledge from his travels to five continents and more than 28 countries, which steeped him in local traditions, authentic ingredients, and large cauldrons of curry. The Stocked Pot's chef-taught classes cater to all ages, experience levels, and epicurean desires. Aspiring chefs can learn to roll and construct creative sushi, properly wield a knife, or cook poultry. Printed recipes, which can be taken home, help students follow along and finally learn how to spell hors d'oeuvres. A retail store stocks tools to further aid in personal kitchens.
