Easy Cuisine

With Cathy Monnet

"Like most kids growing up in France, I've always seen the women in my family cook from scratch. 

My grandfather was passionate about his vegetable garden and taught me to appreciate

natural foods.  My other grandfather was a baker and taught me some of the secrets of his art".

How about producing fabulous, homemade French food with little to NO STRESS?  If the idea appeals to you, join us for an Easy Cuisine workshop with Cathy!


Saturday 30 May, 2-4 pm:

The Secret of French Macarons

Macarons are a butter-creamed filled cookie sandwich that transport you to a cobbled street in Paris with one taste! They are magical, dainty, chic, stylish and delicious in equal measure. Rather than their Macaroon counterparts, French Macarons are made primarily with almond flour and sugar, making them naturally gluten free!   True to her philosophy, Cathy will teach you the secret to the quintessential macaron while using only natural ingredients and NO food coloring.

Cathy will make everyday French cuisine EASY for you!

  • Ingredients are mostly fresh, unprocessed, easy to find and easy on your wallet,

  • Recipes are customized so you have options to choose from, depending on the occasion, season, taste, dietary requirements etc,

  • Cooking techniques are simplified and menus streamlined,

  • You'll also get wine pairing recommendations that will make it even easier to impress your loved ones.
