We look forward to welcoming you back to Zoé's first in-person class this year! For her return to 18th St with you, she's inspired by the season and is revisiting her series inspired by the farmers market. Marché Bastille, or the Bastille Farmer’s Market, is one of the largest Parisian food markets offering an abundance of mouthwatering produce. Open twice a week, it draws large crowds to its 50+ open-air, specialized food stands selling the very best in produce, breads, cheeses, meats and seafood. If you were a Parisian resident, this could be the menu you create to celebrate peak produce as the days get shorter, the nights cooler, and the air crisper. 

You'll be cooking alongside your classmates, taking a break to enjoy a plated pumpkin soup course at our communal dining table. Alongside the soup, gougeres will be served on side salad plates. After the soup and gougères course, we will return to the kitchen to cook the risotto in groups, which will be plated immediately, as a finished risotto waits for no one!



Gougère—Pumpkin Gougères with Compound Butter

Soup de Potiron—Velvety Pumpkin Soup

Risotto au Poireaux—Leek Risotto


This menu contains the following common allergens: Egg, Dairy, Wheat. If you have allergies or dietary restrictions that concern your ability to cook along, please e-mail before purchasing a ticket.
