This class is: Vive La France (gluten free): $75/person

In Spring 2016, Marlene did a month-long immersion in the South of France working on an organic farm, performing in a concert and cycling through the Dordogne region. This menu commemorates the first anniversary of this trip, inspired by French meals over the years. We will finish with a take on a Parisian icon, Crêpe Nutella, except the “nutella” here is home-made.

*Creamy Asparagus soup with Smoked Salmon and Crème fraîche, Pan fried Scallops in a Pernod cream sauce, Sautéed Organic Beets, carrots and Beet greens, Strawberries and Hazelnut Chocolate Crêpe (a la Nutella) (Gluten Free)


*Note: We wiill do our best to keep the ingredients/menu exactly as written, but substitutions may be made occasionally due to market availability and our desire to find the freshest produce possible.
