Team Building Activity - The Essence of French Cooking

Working as a team is the best way to emphasize the essence of French cooking.

In this hands-on, team building class, Chef Jordan W. demonstrates the techniques needed to draw out the essence of French cuisine with your colleagues.

You and your team will begin by working together to construct a classic French wild mushroom risotto with notes of white wine, fresh Parmesan and lemon zest. An authentic French countryside dish of baked local vegetables will form the ratatouille to side your pan-seared local whitefish meunière. Lastly, your team will whip up a silky mousse tart brightened with lemon to showcase the essence of the regional flavors.

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

Thank you Chef Jordan and company for the fun night! We greatly appreciate your patience with our rowdy group..... valuable knife skills were learned and we were able to participate in creating a wonderful meal from the most fresh and amazing ingredients. Chef Jordan has a laid back approach that made us feel comfortable and not intimidated to try something new. We had so much fun! Thanks again!

Great class with tasty food! Chef Jordan is very knowledgable and friendly. The class is in his home, which was welcoming and inviting. Just a word of advice: Definitely take the larger of your vehicles as he is up in the mountains (beautiful area). But all in all, would recommend!

Despite the glowing reviews, our night with Chef Jordan was a little disappointing. We weren’t offered any crudités with hummus as shown in the menu, and we’d have been a lot happier if we’d been able to help more with the cooking. He showed us how to chop the vegetables and then left us to do it rather than correct our errors, and we helped with the pasta machine, but we weren’t involved at all in the desert, which wasn’t even the same desert that was advertised. We weren’t even offered aprons, which seems basic, though from the little cooking we did, they weren’t really necessary. Chef Jordan was pleasant but lacked enthusiasm. My sister remarked that it felt like we’d been invited to someone’s house for an okay dinner, but that it was obvious that the host didn’t really want us to be there. That is exactly how it felt! It’s a shame, and the food we did have was nice. It was just far, far too much money for a subpar experience.
