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 22 February, 4-6 pm:

Winter Bistro Menu:

Velouté de panais

Poulet sauce suprême

Verrine tarte au citron

In this workshop, we'll discover how to turn a seasonal, underrated root vegetable - parsnip - into an creative and flavorful velouté.  We'll learn how to make a luxurious sauce suprême  to perfectly complement any chicken, egg or vegetable dish.  We'll finish on a sweet lemon verrine, or "dessert in a glass". Intriguingly composed of various layers, a verrine is a study in textures, flavors, colors and temperatures.  If you go deep enough to get a bit of each layer, you can taste every ingredient in one bite, making verrines as exciting to eat as they are gorgeous to look at !
