When cooking, you rely heavily on salt and pepper -- but you'd like to shake up your spice routine. Add some (lemon) zest to your repertoire with today's deal from Yasin Culinary: Pay $42 (regularly $85) to take a three-hour, small-group Syrian cooking class from Ahmad Yasin, the former owner of Kareem, Watertown's award-winning Middle Eastern restaurant. During the lesson, you'll get hands-on instruction in cooking techniques (like knife skills) and in preparing Syrian recipes packed with fresh veggies and exotic spices. In Yasin's professional kitchen studio, you and the group will prepare -- and feast on -- colorful and nutritious salads, appetizers, dinner, and desserts. The Boston Globe magazine describes these classes as perfect for "culinary anthropologists" and sessions are available at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on 7/2, 7/4, 7/9, 7/11, 7/16, 7/18, 7/23, 7/25, 7/30, 8/1, 8/6, 8/8, 8/13, 8/15, 8/20, 8/22, 8/27, and 8/29 -- making it convenient to find the perfect time to swap salt for scallions.
