While mainly used to craft delectable meals, strong cooking skills are also useful for carving a baguette body-double when you want to play hooky from work. Hone your regular repast with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two hands-on cooking and mixology classes at Two Cooks with Love Catering in Spokane Valley (a $60 value).
Two Cooks with Love dishes delectable delights to picky palates and multi-flavored favorers alike. Its Backyard Club cooking and mixology classes whip wannabe gastronomic gurus aged 21 or older into prime chef shape with all the vigor of a time lapse set to an '80s power ballad. Learn the proper preparation of 7–10 dishes in each class, from appetizers to desserts, while mastering four to five popular cocktails with pouring-pizzazz supplied by licensed bartenders. Hands-on comestible lessons are two-and-a-half hours and take on a new theme each month. Sign up to edibly experience April's Easter brunch, May's Cinco de Mayo fiesta or June's Foods of the Northwest among 16–20 culinary cohorts. Once students attend one class they receive a free voucher for another. All recipes are emailed to newly dubbed cuisine connoisseurs the day following class to be used for impressing spouses, surprising friends, and blowing away the home-ec teacher who lost two eyebrows and half a moustache to your failed adolescent attempt at banana bread.
