WHY THIS CLASS: “Le savoir faire”

French cuisine (FrenchCuisine française) consists of the cooking traditions and practices from France. Its cuisine has been influenced throughout the centuries by the many surrounding cultures of Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, in addition to its own food traditions on the long western coastlines of the Atlantic.

It is thought to be the most sophisticated cuisine in the world, with a wild range of techniques, tastes, flavors, shapes & traditions. No one does it in style like the French, isn’t it?

So many famous chefs have mastered this incredible art that is cooking like a French. Pioneers like Paul Bocuse, Alain Ducasse, Pierre Herme, Cyril Lignac, Anne-Sophie Pic, Joël Robuchon and more, are the ones who make us dream and think of the beauty of French gastronomy.

In this 8-session package, we will do our best to share with you the theory, knowledge, history and practice of this absolutely fascinating art.
