Groupon Cooking Date

Intro

It’s date time! Skip the movie! And go straight to dinner! Wait, hold up, and rewind! Before getting all comforty on your chair, try something that will make your night heat up! No, I’m talking about adding some red hot chili pepper to your dish, but a cooking class, and this will definitely heat up the night, as in flames! ;)

 

Groupon Date!

With a whooping Groupon deal of $28 for two people (compare to $300 ekkks!), we learned how to cook a Three Course Italian Dinner: Minestrone Soup, Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo, and Cannoli.

There’s also other food that you could cook and just to list a few: French Onion Soup, Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms, Mediterranean Salad, Russian Beef Stroganoff, Peach Flambé over French Vanilla Ice-Cream, Minestrone Italiano, Crostini Caprese, Chicken Parmesan with Angel Hair Pomodoro, Shrimp Bisque, Italian Meatloaf Wellington,and there are also Pizza making classes!

Make sure you contact Napoli Culinary Academy for the dates and type of classes available.

Looks like someone needs help from one of the Napoli Chefs!

We were in charge of the Minestrone Soup and hopefully we don’t screw it up! We simmered the soup for 20 minutes and it’s looking deli-cious!

Our other group members made the Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo.

And… the final product…

Here’s our first course, our extra spicy Minestrone Soup. Ops! Added too much dried pepper, but still amazing! It burns!

Second course, our Shrimp and Scallop Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo.

Our group’s cannoli made with lots of chocolate and strawberry syrup!

And, yup, we got judged for our final product! Here are the chefs tasting our food… and who won?

And… (drum roll) …. Everyone is a winner! 

Last Thoughts

Definitely, a great, heaty bonding experience with my best friend. Here’s what I learned about him: he can’t cook, but next time when he does, he will definitely heat up the night and cook me an Italian Three Course Meal! 

He’s quite the chef!
