Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Let children master meal melding with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two hands-on kids' cooking classes at Young Chefs Academy in Chandler (a $50 value). Today's Groupon is valid for KinderCooks, Junior Chef, or Senior Chef classes for children ages 3–16.
Instructors at Young Chefs Academy corral roomfuls of youthful cooks and captivate food-minded sensibilities with age-appropriate presentations of recipes, kitchen safety, and advanced food-fight strategy. In KinderCooks classes, an instructor and assistant spend 60 minutes illustrating shapes, colors, and numbers for the benefit of no more than 15 personages aged 3 to 6. Junior Chef (ages 7–11) and Senior Chef (ages 12–16) sessions spend 90 minutes teaching youths new techniques to apply to their gustatorial creations and exposing them to diverse foods and avant-garde refrigerator art.
