Cooking Class - French Culinary Essentials

Make a delectable and satisfying French spread that's fit for fine dining.

In this interactive cooking class, you’ll handcraft an assortment of gourmet French classics with Chef Alex, who will guide you in turning simple ingredients into a world-class meal.

First, you’ll make a crisp frisée salad tossed in a tangy shallot and Dijon dressing. Then, learn how to perfectly cook a whole chicken with savory bacon and earthy mushrooms, and roast fingerling potatoes with butter and herbs as a delightful side. For dessert, bake up French almond cakes infused with rich brown butter and vanilla.

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

We had the absolute best time with Alex and have already started saving for another class! We are a young couple and very new to cooking and Alex was an incredible teacher and chef. We would have been so intimidated to make any of these foods on our own, but Alex showed us just how attainable it can be. We learned so much and can't stop talking about how yummy the menu was. 100% recommend taking a class with Alex!
