For more than a century, delighted diners - from accidental tourists to midnight habitués - have enjoyed some of the best French cuisine in the neighborhood cafes of Paris. Over bowls of savory Ragout, platters of tempting Coq au Vin, and glasses of regional wine, customers have shared the warm and lively streetside cafe atmosphere that makes even a simple evening in Paris memorable. Each café in Paris has its own special ambiance and menu. 

Join us as we recreate the food and ambiance of a Paris café, right down to French music in the background and waiters in black and white.  Longtime CCKC instructor Chef Gary Hild will take you through beautiful recipes on a step-by-step basis in his easy-going and informative teaching style so that you’ll be able to recreate them at home.

At the heart of French cooking is a deep appreciation for food and the methods of preparation. Tonight you will have the time and a little professional help as Chef Gary walks you thought a fabulous menu.  By the end of the evening, you will know how to prepare a deliciously simple French meal as you learn Chicken Coq a Vin, a classic dish with a beautiful red wine sauce, and Rice Pilaf. Next comes a lesson on Mushroom Duxelle as Chef Gary shows you how to make Salmon in Puff Pastry with a fresh Basil sauce. We’ll round out our fantastic meal with Ratatouille, a colorful vegetable dish, and end with a fancy, yet simple Cherries Jubilee for dessert. 

We hope you’ll join us. Oui Oui!
