Picture yourself in a French bistro as you create and enjoy four classic French dishes.

Master the art of French cooking techniques that you will keep in your kitchen repertoire for years to come. Chef Megan will guide this hands-on cooking class as you prepare beloved French dishes together.

Begin by making decadent lobster bisque complete with bits of tender lobster meat, and a fresh bistro salad with spinach, bacon and wonderfully tangy vinaigrette. Then, learn how to cook beef bourguignon, a quintessential French dish, stewed low and slow in red wine. For dessert, Chef Megan will show you how to make crème brûlée.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
