French Market


Class Description

From Market to Table –

Learn what it is like to shop, cook and eat like a Parisian with a market visit and cooking class. You will create the menu with the Chef, learn the secrets of selecting top quality produce from the market, and prepare these ingredients in a hands-on cooking class followed by lunch.

The menu is not decided in advance. We will let the seasons and the fresh produce available at our local market to shape our meal. You and your fellow participants will interact with each other, the vendors and your chef to get the best products and transform them into a delicious lunch. At the end of the cooking class, we sit down and enjoy the 4-course meal together including a fine selection of cheeses paired with excellent French wines.
