French Cooking Class
We did a French cooking class in the café on Saturday for a private birthday party. Our guests wanted to do French cooking. So what to make? Hmmmm…French is one of our favorite cuisines…a few classics came immediately to mind…
- Chicken Francaise
- Salad Nicoise
- Beef Burgundy
- Spinach Souffle
But in the end, our guests voted for the following menu….
French Bistro Cooking Class a la “Croc”
French Onion Soup- seductive and smoky with sweet caramelized onion, smoky bacon and fortified with a healthy jolt of tawny port.
Salad Lyonnaise- frisee lettuce is tossed with cubes of thick-cut bacon, a sherry vinaigrette and topped with an organic poached egg (aka bacon & egg salad)
Sirloin Steaks “Dianne”- thinly sliced steaks are grilled in butter with button mushrooms and flambéed and basted with brandy.
A good time was had by all. Bon Appetit!!
