Un Dimanche A La Campagne: February 2011

Sunday February 6, 2:30-6:30 PM

$75/ person

The cooking class series “Un Dimanche A La Campagne” or “Sunday in the Country” teaches students simple ways to create flavorful and healthy meals from local seasonal ingredients, using fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs and meat/poultry sourced from small local farms.


We discuss the art of building a menu throughout the season. We thoroughly go through timing of preparation & cooking with emphasis on all that can be made ahead to minimize actual time in the kitchen during your party. We’ll also discuss variations so you can customize the dishes.  The limited-size classes are lively with lots of practical tips, tangents into gardening, food history, vegetable storage, dish variations etc.


In February, we’ll learn how to cook a stylish menu perfect for entertaining in late winter/early spring — a nice menu to practice for Valentine’s day!


On the menu:

Butternut Squash Soup With Truffle Oil

Baked Goat Cheese on Croute with Green Winter Salad

Stuffed Pork Roast Stuffed with Dry Cranberries

Potato Galette

Sautéed Mushrooms

Rum Chocolate Sorbet with Maple Caramelized Bananas


Printed recipes provided as well as time to sit down and enjoy the freshly prepared dishes.


If you are interested in one of our workshops but can’t make it, contact us, anyway. If we have enough interest, we’ll repeat the workshop on an alternative day - or we can arrange a private lesson!
