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, $25 gets you a three-hour cooking class from Whisked Away, located inside a residential home on Mulberry Drive (a $50 value). Currently, classes are scheduled during work-friendly evening hours throughout the month.
At Whisked Away, each three-hour, hands-on cooking class operates under the spicy eye of chef Maggie Norris, who worked with mega-chefs Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse, among others, during a post-culinary-school stint at the Food Network. Now cooking in the comforts of her home-style kitchen, Maggie conducts each lesson by progressing from recipe discussion to comprehensive prep time, leaving enough time at the end for a sit-down celebration of all pupil-prepared eats. The calendar currently includes themes such as “Cuban Influenced Dinner” on September 16, “Elegant Dinner Party Menu” on September 21, and “A Taste of New Orleans” on September 30. All ingredients, utensils, cookware, and hankies for mopping away tears of joy are provided.
Aside from scheduled classes, Groupon customers can also combine eight or more Groupons to arrange a private group cooking class with Maggie. A family-friendly and friend-friendly experience, each private class allows the group to collaborate with Maggie to determine a fitting date, menu, and cooking location such as your home, Maggie’s classroom kitchen, or the nearest Ikea ball pit.
Eight Yelpers give Whisked Away a perfect five-star average:
- You can have an empty kitchen and she brings it all. We made 4 recipes and the lesson was 3 hours (just in time for dinner). The lesson was fun and the tips given through out were great. – Danielle R.
- Our class has everyone from beginners to expierenced [sic] cooks and everyone enjoys it. When I started I was a terrible cook and she has taught me so much. I can actually cook some respectable dinners thanks to Whisked Away. – casey a.
