French Bistro Passion

Learn some amazing French Bistro recipes in one of our more technical classes, but the ultimate "dinner-party" menu to impress.

This exciting class will introduce you to some of France’s most classic bistro dishes, designed especially for relaxed “heat and serve” dinner party entertaining.

As well as other bistro classics, our “French Bistro Passion” class will demystify one of France’s most accessible and easy charcuterie techniques of “confit” (which literally means to “preserve”). Developed centuries ago by French farmers as a means to preserve duck, and other meats, this extraordinarily versatile technique for the home cook results in duck which is succulent and meltingly tender!

Class Menu

Salade de Confit de Canard (Twice Cooked Duck) – sublimely salted and spiced tender duck legs…served with Salade Frisee avec Noisettes – classic bistro salad of endive and Balsamic vinaigrette with roasted hazelnuts
