Class Description: 

Gather a group of friends or treat your special someone to a special date night as we kick off the holiday season in style with an interactive cooking class that features classic French dishes made famous by Julia Child.  Julia brought the art of French cooking to the United States and did it by mastering one technique at a time.  If you want to cook like her, you’ll need to learn to do that, too. Let's do it! 

Chef Jesse Vega, is an experienced culinary professional, he is eager to prove that there’s no need to be intimidated by all the fancy French terms and cooking methods.  He will lead the way and teach you that French cooking is actually doable. You'll learn essential culinary techniques and excellent mise en place tips and tricks that will serve you well anytime you are in the kitchen.  My guess is that you’ll also add a French phrase or two to your vocabulary!

Our classic menu includes Pissaladier (homemade flatbread with savory toppings), Pommes de Terre a L’Huile (aka French potato salad), and, of course, Julia’s signature Boeuf Bourguignon – a savory beef stew will knock your socks off!. We'll end with a lovely French dessert.  By the end of this fun French cooking class, you’ll be a regular “Ratatouille”! Julia would be so proud….and so will you!

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
