Cooking Class - French-Style Poaching and Braising

Learn how to do two key cooking techniques the French way.

It’s time to elevate your home cooking style. In this class, you’ll learn the basics of two signature French cooking methods with Chef Anja, who went to cooking school in France and apprenticed at Michelin Star restaurants.

First, Chef Anja will teach you how to braise two different parts of a chicken in white wine. Then, you’ll get a second chance to try this unique method of preparation on vegetables, which locks in nutrition and enhances the flavor. At the end, you’ll learn how to poach making a classic French favorite, poached pear in wine, then dine on all the fruits of your labor.

Wonderful experience and a lot of fun and laughs. Chef Anja was perfect for us, so much food and a true learning experience. She is a weath of information, professional and blended with every one of us who participated. We definitly want to have another cooking experience with her. if you want a great experience, select her as your choice of Chef, she will not disappoint. First thing you notice about her... her smile and passion for what she does. K R Dignity Health

Chef Anja flawlessly executed a pasta making team building class for 27 people (from Japan, Europe, China, Canada and the US!) and it truly was the perfect alternative to a regular sit down team dinner. The event ran seamlessly, the arrangements ahead of time couldn't have been easier (even with our ever changing headcount) and she was able to accommodate all food allergies. Highly, highly recommend Chef Anja!
