18 Reasons: French Countryside Classics
September 15 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A hands-on cooking class culminating in a dinner served with a glass of wine.
The cuisine of the French countryside is centered around rustic dishes that highlight seasonal produce, flavorsome fresh herbs, and simple ingredients. This is food that provides a feeling of warmth and wellbeing. Zoé McLaughlin will show us that, although many of the classics are impressive, they needn’t be intimidating.
