Summer is finally here, hot, sunny, breezy, perfect. I love it but to be honest, I’m thinking about autumn. Classes will be so much fun this fall, and I want to give you a little preview.
You already know some of the cast and characters of my life from reading my books. This fall you’ll meet many of them. After a morning espresso, we’ll meander through the market where you’ll laugh with the finest local vegetable grower (he supplies all of us AND the local Michelin starred restaurants); we’ll taste cheeses with the person who made them, sample foie gras straight from the farm, and after a visit to my vaulted wine cellar we’ll sip vintage wines, including those made with loving care by my award winning wine-maker friend, Astrid. She is likely to join us to say hello and share some of her winemaking secrets.
Summer produce will be at its best through October, joined by apples, pumpkins, chestnuts, and wild mushroom. We’ll take them all into the kitchen where I will teach you cooking secrets you can’t find anywhere else but in this special place.
A week at On Rue Tatin will give you a sound basis in classic French cooking techniques (like roasting a chicken, and hand making the perfect aioli)
You’ll meet local artisans who will share their stories, techniques, and innate Gallic charm with you
You’ll learn the true sense of eating local, seasonal, sustainable food
You’ll discover your hidden talents as we sit down to eat sensational meals that you made
You will leave On Rue Tatin with the desire to get in the kitchen and create meals to share around the table.
