Cooking Class: French Seafood Specialties

In this hands-on cooking class with Chef Mateus, you’ll create a spectacular seafood dinner and a stunning French-style charcuterie board — the latter of which is a must-have for grazing at a party or celebration. Chef Mateus is an expert at French cooking — he has a slew of techniques, tips and tricks he’s excited to share with you. To start, you’ll cook a flaky cod with brown butter, accompanied by a bright, creamy pea purée.

Chef Mateus was amazing. He has experience cooking in Thailand and the pad Thai was the best I’ve ever had. You get to cook in a distillery and can get drinks from the bar which is awesome. Would highly recommend!
