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 semiliving lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with this Groupon.

$99 for a Maya Angelou–Inspired Cooking Experience (a $250 Value)

One copy of Great Food All Day Long by Maya Angelou (a $30 value), a cooking class and pre-inscribed, personalized book dedication and autograph (a $210 value), and wine (a $10 value).

While collecting the many laurels of her long and venerable writing career, Maya Angelou has developed a lesser-known lifelong passion for cooking. Her reflective, nutrition-savvy cookbook, Great Food All Day Long, reached its final form with the help of celebrity chef Donald McMillan, who worked side by side with Angelou to transform her dishes into easy-to-make meals. As McMillan shares stories behind the book's creation and the secret code that turns all Angelou poems into dessert recipes, the aromas of roasted pork and vegetables, sweet potatoes, and pears in port wine fill the kitchen. Check the schedule for class times.

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.
