Flavors of Spain: Barcelona

$85.00

 

A hands-on cooking class culminating in lunch served with wine.

Catalan cuisine is perhaps most widely known for the innovative style of chef Ferran Adria and his many disciples of modern gastronomy.

Flavors of France: Provence

$95.00

A hands-on cooking class culminating in dinner served with wine.

Located in the South of France, Provence is widely known for its rolling hills of lavender, vineyards of celebrated rosé, and aromatic clusters of rosemary, thyme, oregano, and tarragon (herbes de Provence). Yet there is an unpretentious and practical side to the region, and such values can be seen in its delicious cuisine. Zoé McLaughlin will show us that food that is hearty and honest can be elegant, and simple can seem special.

Flavors of China

$95.00

A hands-on cooking class culminating in dinner served with wine and beer.

In traditional Chinese households, food is consumed for both its taste and its therapeutic properties.

The art of Chinese healing foods is about balancing eneriges (yin and yang) while creating absolutely delicioius and satisfying meals.
