Cooking Class: Rustic French Cuisine

In this hands-on cooking class with Chef Shahida, you'll learn to make a menu of dishes that would be at home on a French country table. As you cook these rustic, heartwarming dishes, you'll also learn French cooking techniques. First up on this French menu is a warming French onion soup with a crusty Gruyère crostini. Then, you'll learn to roast a Cornish hen to golden perfection with garlic, herbs and potatoes. You'll round out the meal with a seasonal ratatouille and for dessert enjoy red wine poached pears with crème.

Chef Shahida was great! We really enjoyed the class. She was kind, brought great quality foods, and taught us a lot about sushi and the culture behind it. Would definitely recommend.
