MENU & DATES for our cooking classes online

COQ AU VIN Menu

It’s scallop season in France! That means that we’re finding fresh plump scallops at our markets. We want to transport you to a French brasserie with this tasty menu with our scallops as an appetizer in a sweet and tangy orange butter sauce and the slight licorice flavor of candied fennel. We’ll follow our meal with a classic main, coq au vin, while you may not have a rooster handy, a nice chicken will do. We’ll end the meal with the awe-inspiring Tarte Tatin. This is a menu not to be missed.

Menu: Appetizer: Scallops with orange butter sauce & candied fennel, Main-course: Coq au Vin, Dessert: Tarte Tatin
Timing: ~3 hours

CANARD A L’ORANGE Menu

You may remember this French classic as being heavy on the sweetness but just toss that idea out of your mind and indulge in a revisited version that is lighter but certainly not lacking in flavor. Learn the best way to cook duck to perfection to be enjoyed with our orange sauce and turnip confit. Our menu also includes a mussel, potato, and leek soup as a starter and we’ll finish it all off with a heavenly riz au lait (French rice pudding)

CASSOULET Menu

There’s much debate as to who in the Southwest of France makes the best Cassoulet. But you’ll be able to say that yours is the best after joining us for this class. For those who aren’t familiar with this slow-cooked casserole with meat, pork, & white beans, you don’t know what you have been missing. We’re taking you on a journey to southern France with this French classic. Start with a light appetizer include carpaccio of beets served with a delicious onion cake and goat cheese cream. For our dessert, we’ll enjoy a decadent chocolate mousse with orange coulis.

POULET BASQUAISE Menu

You can’t have too many chicken recipes in your repertoire and this chicken stew which originates from the Basque country in France with its tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, & garlic. And of course, Piment d’Espelette – a basque pepper similar to Hungarian paprika. Just the right kick for those colder nights. Our menu includes a leek & goat cheese tartlet as an appetizer and a nougat glacé  – (where ice-cream meets meringue) – light, nutty, & delicious.

Menu: Appetizer: Leek & Goat Cheese Tart, Main Course: Poulet Basquaise, Dessert: Nougat Glacé

This time we’re transporting you to Eastern France with this classic Taste of France menu. We start with a seafood gratin as our appetizer, with mussels, salmon, & shrimp, followed by the Truite Grenobloise (Trout with a Grenobloise sauce). The Grenobloise sauce is a sauce including butter, lemon, & capers which we will enjoy on a tasty filet of trout. To accompany our main course you’ll prepare a celery root purée (mashed potatoes will be just fine if you can’t find celery root (celeriac). We end the meal with chef Eric’s favorite desserts, the baba au rhum (rum baba). And don’t worry if you can’t find trout, you can also use salmon or arctic char.
