What You'll Get
The seeds of chefhood blossom from the very first dashes of salt and cinnamon that grace a child's suppertime lima beans. Today's Groupon encourages the culinary spirit in the youth of today, who are the former children of tomorrow. For $14, you get a 90-minute cooking class at Young Chefs Academy near Hunters Creek. If you register to become a member of the academy while redeeming your Groupon, you'll receive half off the registration fee, and if you opt to enroll in summer camp at the academy, you'll receive 15% off the admission price.
Young Chefs Academy provides a fun, safe, and motivating environment for kids and adults to become acquainted with the art of food and food presentation. Though most classes cater to the discerning tastes of the 3–17-year-old crowd, weekly adult classes are also available for the bumbling baker or the clumsy kitchenphobe. Engaging chef instructors instill lessons of kitchen etiquette and safety in youngsters growing up in a world full of laser can openers and sharp pasta rakes, giving children a capable handle on their surroundings as they journey into the land of food. Classes, which are organized by age group, teach basic food-prep and recipe-following skills and follow the evolution of a nutritious meal from conception to edible fruition. Tiny tots will learn baking basics while senior flambéists are offered advanced classes that dig deeper into kitchen secrets and hone specific skills and techniques that expand the parameters of cooking creativity.
Redeem this deal to transform your tribe into a pack of budding pastry chefs, or gift it to your kitchen-caged sister in hopes that her spawn will take over the cooking for a day. The lessons learned from early cuisine classes spark a valuable communion between a child and a stove. Imaginations stretch as they contemplate the infinite possibilities between ingredients, spices, and food presentations so astute they beg to be stapled to the refrigerator door.
