Team Building Activity: Celebrating French Cooking Traditions

Join Chef Paul for a team building activity where your team will learn how to prepare classic French dishes using traditional French cooking techniques. You'll warm up your teamwork skills by preparing a traditional French vinaigrette to serve with a mesclun salad. Then, for the salmon entrée, Chef Paul will teach you and your team a classic French technique known as "en papillote," in which you'll use steam to gently cook ingredients in parchment paper. For the side dish, you'll make a flavorful quinoa, lentil and vegetable medley, honing your knife skills in the process. Lastly, you'll conclude the night by working together to make decadent profiteroles topped with warm chocolate sauce.

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!

Chef Paul was very knowledgeable and funny! I have a little bit of experience cooking and I still took a lot away from this class. He very thoroughly answers any questions you have and is patient and encouraging. I will definitely go back for another class!
