Cooking Class: Make a Festival of French Flavor

No need to find your passport to taste the fabulous French dining in this in-person cooking class from Chef Catalina. This session features iconic dishes from the original gourmet cuisine for a menu that represents the best of the region. 

Begin your lesson with vichyssoise, a cold and creamy potato soup flavored with leeks and tarragon. Learn the magic of preparing coq au vin using wine and butter as a lavish braise and layer squash, eggplant and tomatoes for a ratatouille that recalls the French countryside. And whip up crepe Suzette flambe for a fiery dessert with serious continental flair.
