18 Reasons: Flavors of Bordeaux
February 10 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A hands-on cooking class culminating in dinner served with wine and beer.
The Bordeaux region of France is known for their fine wine, but what about the food?
Standing beside award-winning wines is an equally prestigious cuisine, sourcing from the Atlantic Ocean coastline to feature seafood, as well as hearty lamb roasts and beef stews. Bordeaux’s most famous dish is Entrecôte A La Bordelaise, a rib steak cooked in a rich sauce made from Bordeaux wine, shallots, butter, herbs and bone marrow, which pairs beautifully with any of the award winning reds from the region.
In this hands-on class featuring Bordeaux cuisine classics, Zoe McLaughlin will teach you the tips and techniques required to be a confident chef de cuisine in your home kitchen.
