Autumn in Asheville 

Asheville, North Carolina
Three Day Class October 23-25, 2013
Evening Class October 25, 2013 

I’m more than thrilled to be returning to Asheville, North Carolina, a small jewel of a city whose food culture is rich in tradition, deep in culture, lively in innovation. With Asheville and its food culture as our backdrop, we will cook together for three days, in a professionally equipped kitchen near the Biltmore mansion. Our ingredients will come from local farms and producers; recipes and wines will be French (with a few Italian accents included), meals will be leisurely. As we cook, I will give you tricks, tips, and hints that I’ve learned during my thirty year cooking career in France, and you will leave your Asheville experience with a new-found confidence in the kitchen.

Our cooking class will include three hands-on classes, three meals, a field trip to visit an artisan food producer, and many tastes of local products. You will be thrilled and delighted with the quality of cheeses, breads, meats, seafood and local produce, and I will make sure that you leave the class with French techniques, recipes adapted to the home cook, and answers to all your cooking questions.

I will also offer two individual evening classes for those who cannot free themselves during the day.

The price for the three day class, which includes three hands-on classes, three meals, and a field trip with samples is $1,200. The cost for an evening class is $295.
