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 deal: for $40, you can choose one cooking class that allows two people (up to a $98 value) at The Stocked Pot in Winston-Salem. This Groupon cannot be used toward any class or cooking series that costs above $49.
The Stocked Pot is a cooking school that offers classes to 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. Parent & Child Cooking Fun places extra emphasis on cooking as a bonding tool, teaching familial pairs to work together to prepare a complete meal in less than an hour ($29 per pair). If you're looking to become a more global gourmand but know that your German-engineered Wüsthof knives will never be allowed to cross the border, hone in on the Cuisine Of Thailand ($39 per person) without having to travel too far. Other specialized classes include instruction in hands-on bread making ($39 per person), the proper preparation of argentine flank steak and crepes ($49 per person), and not catching fire.
At the end of each class, students get to taste the day's resulting treats, so come hungry and bring your largest and most heavily starched bib, taking care to outdo the other students in sheer circumference. Space in each class is limited, so call ahead to reserve your spot and mention your Groupon.
Reservations are required.
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.
