What You'll Get
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. With today's deal, $49 gets you one cooking class from Viking Cooking School. Find out why your soufflé always falls or learn the basics of braising and roasting and the dark art of broasting.
A state-of-the-culinary-art kitchen with Viking appliances and professionally trained chef instructors make the Viking Cooking School an ideal place to sharpen the santoku knives of your culinary prowess. All recipes are created by professional chefs and made to be recreated by you at home. Choose one class from the upcoming schedule of hands-on workshops, demonstrations with informative discussions, guest-chef classes, and classes for kids (7–12) and teens (12–15). The Barbeque Basics ($135) teaches pit-mastering techniques such as adding smoke flavor, basting, making homemade barbecue sauce, and properly dribbling that sauce on your face or bib. Learn animal-free recipes at various veggie classes such as the Vegetarian Dinner Party ($79), which will construct a menu with such items as eggplant roulades with oven-dried tomatoes and chèvre cream sauce and wild-mushroom baklava. Take a look at the full calendar of classes here.
Each class lasts between two and five hours, and you'll be taught useful cooking techniques that you can transfer to future delectable do-it-yourself dishes. All of the food you'll need, equipment, and instruction are included in today's Groupon—just bring your requisite amount of "Mmm's" and "Pow! Double Pow!"s.
