In order to give you more in depth tuition on specific ingredients we have designed special courses that are focused on one theme at a time (meat, fish, vegetables, bread...). These individual courses will be entirely dedicated to teaching you the art of sourcing, preparing and cooking the theme ingredient. You will learn how to make the most out of your own produce. From rustic baguettes to pan fried sea bass with beurre blanc sauce, together we will explore various techniques, teaching you new ways to approach the ingredients you have been cooking for years expanding your recipe portfolio and knowledge of traditional French cooking. These are limited courses and will be held on specified dates. Click below For More information on the scheduled courses.
