menu 13 juilletDes crêpes pour tous les goûts et à tous les parfums (on July 13)

Dans ce cours on fera des "galettes" au sarrasin fourrées au poulet avec une sauce Mornay, à la ratatouille, au jambon/fromage, aux champignons et comme dessert, on fera des crêpes à la Normande, des crêpes Suzette ou tout simplement à la confiture ou à la liqueur!

A toutes les sauces (on July 20)

Dans ce cours on étudiera les sauces de base de la cuisine française. D'abord les sauces à émulsions comme la mayonnaise ou la sauce hollandaise. Ensuite ce sera les sauces à base de farine et de beurre pour faire un roux; sauce béchamel, sauce Mornay, etc. Ces sauces sont très pratiques parce qu'elles aident à agrémenter des légumes, des œufs et des viandes et leur donner du goût.

Un pique-nique à la française (on July 27)

Dans ce cours on fera une salade niçoise, un pâté de campagne et des madeleines au citron.

Dans ce cours on découvrira tout ce que vous pouvez préparer avec la pâte à choux, du salé ou sucré : gougères, bouchées, éclairs, Saint-Honorés, religieuses, petit fours, choux à la crème, cygnes à la crème.
