You'll be cooking food from the following regions:



June 22 - la Bretagne

We will travel to the West region of Bretagne, a region surrounded by the sea and appreciated for its mild climate. It is rich in seafood, famous for its fresh produce, its crêpes, cookies and cider. In this workshop, you will learn to prepare Mini gâteaux de galettes de la mer, Coquilles saint Jacques à la Bretonne and Tartelettes aux fraises sur sablé breton.




June 29 - la Normandie

We will discover the neighboring region North of Bretagne, la Normandie. This region is famous for its dairy products and apples. A lot of the dishes are prepared with cream. In this workshop learn to prepare Oeufs cocotte à la crème, Poulet Vallée d’Auge, Trou normand et Bourdelots.




July 6 - l’Occitanie

We will head to the sunny South of France and the largest region of France: l’Occitanie. This is the heart of the Occitan culture, and you can feel the influence of that culture in the cuisine. L'Occitanie is comprised of the former regions of Languedoc/Roussillon/Midi-Pyrénées. In this workshop we will prepare Feuilleté aux anchois, Cassoulet d’été, Crème catalane and all you need to know about Roquefort.



July 13 - le Grand Est

We will then venture to the Far East region of France: Le Grand Est. This region includes former regions like Alsace and Lorraine, but now also comprises regions like Champagne and Ardennes. The main staples of cabbage, potatoes and charcuteries of German cuisine are dominant in Alsace and Lorraine. In this workshop we will prepare Flammekueche, Bouchées à la reine, Trou à la champenoise, and Baba au Rhum.


Classes are $155 for a bundle of 4 or $41 for a single session.
