The cooking school instructors – aka chefs – stand at the ready, and ready they are to guide their pupils through a variety of recipes that often include new ingredients, new utensils, new techniques, even a new vocabulary – all guaranteed to awe with taste and entertainment. Laughter and easy banter quickly bubble to the surface as French chef wannabes loosen up, dig in and often surprise themselves with a meal fit for royalty. But they’re the ones who’ll be dining. This hands-on, interactive experience lasts four to five hours. Consider possibilities that might include Beef Steak au Poivre, Haricots Verts with Walnut Butter, Gratin Dauphinoise, French Baguette, Coquilles St. Jacques. Magnifique!
