Cooking Class: Mastering the Art of French Cooking

Step into the world of French cuisine with a cooking class from Chef Paul and his carefully crafted menu that features four authentic French recipes. With his expert guidance, you'll learn how to prepare classic dishes that are sure to impress your dinner guests.

To start, you'll build a mesclun salad using a blend of chervil, arugula, leafy lettuces and endive, topped with a no-fail vinaigrette. For the main course, you'll learn how to roast the perfect Cornish hen with a paprika rub, served alongside nutmeg-spiced scalloped potatoes. Chef Paul will show you how to achieve the perfect level of crispiness on the skin while keeping the meat juicy and flavorful. And for the grand finale, you'll whip up a dreamy, pillowy raspberry soufflé entirely from scratch. With Chef Paul's expert guidance, you'll learn how to master this classic French dessert and create a show-stopping finish to your meal.

Chef Paul taught us so many things in a short time! We cook everything with love and passion now, thanks to him. The class was so much fun, well organized, and he provided recipes for us to keep cooking at home.

I bought this class as a present for my boyfriend's birthday and we both had a great time!! We learned so much from Chef Paul that we apply in the kitchen every day. I hope to take more classes from Paul in the future!
