Soufflés are a lot easier to make then you think!

Julia Child, America’s beloved no-frills chef, approached cooking with a fun and lighthearted touch. Her straightforward approach was paired with a knowledge of basic cooking techniques to master the art of French cooking. Inspired by Julia's cooking philosophy, our resident French cuisine instructor, Zoe McLaughlin will guide students to perfecting the art of soufflés! These techniques can also be used in a wide range of French dishes including gougère and mousse au chocolat, among others. Zoe will teach you the tips and techniques required to be a confident chef de cuisine in your home kitchen.
