The class will begin with a classic ratatouille, featuring layers of eggplant, squash and zucchini topped with a creamy balsamic sauce. Then, prepare an impressive chicken braised in wine sauce with bacon and onions, with a creamy polenta on the side.

Chef Todd is an excellent private chef. Ive never tried veal and wanted to do so. He put together a menu just for us and prepared pan seared veal chops with one of the best sauces I’ve ever tasted (Roasted garlic and Rosemary Demi glaze) served in a bowl made of caramelized onion. Absolutely delicious..
