Make your own dim sum in one of Le Cordon Bleu's workshops at a reduced rate.

Indulge your inner Julia Child on your next vacation—no plane ticket to Paris necessary.

A new hands-on cooking class deal from Travelzoo offers half-priced courses from Le Cordon Bleu chefs at Bleu Ribbon Kitchen locations in 16 U.S. cities: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Orlando, Pasadena, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, Scottsdale, and Seattle.

Classes are $59 for individuals (down from $125) and $109 for couples (normally $250). Why not build a whole mini getaway around one?

We especially like the sound of the Flavors of the World classes, with mouth-watering offerings like:

• A one-day dim sum workshop. You'll learn to prepare dishes such as coconut buns, shumai, juicy steamed rolls, and shrimp toast (available in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Pasadena, Portland, San Francisco, St. Louis).

• Three different French Bistro Series classes, including Brunch in Paris, Roast Chicken Supper, and Steak Frites (locations for individual courses vary).

• A class on Thai street foods. Dishes like grilled turmeric chicken, chicken satay, and stir-fried minced beef with chiles and basil are listed on the syllabus (available in Chicago, Dallas, Pasadena).

Grab the deal by Feb. 1, 2016 at Travelzoo.com. Each student also goes home with a Bleu Ribbon apron and recipes from the class—but the real souvenir is the brand-new know-how.
