Class Description: “Recipes are guidelines, starting points for cooks to diverge from. Take them in your own personal direction. I suggest you adopt the French attitude in the kitchen and cook au pif (by the nose). ” David Lebovitz
For the last decade, American pastry chef David Lebovitz has been living the sweet life in Paris, while sharing wisdom on his wildly popular blog. In his latest cookbook, My Paris Kitchen David blends stories about his adopted city with 100 sweet and savory recipes that reflect the way Parisians cook at home. With his trademark wit and humor, David reveals the quirks, trials, beauty and joys of life in the culinary capital of the world.
In this fun, hands-on class, our chef instructor will share David Lebovitz’s tips for cooking au pif, relying on your senses and seasoning to taste. Using “My Paris Kitchen” as our guide, we’ll practice everything from perfectly poaching eggs to creating easy homemade vinaigrette. You’ll enjoy working alongside classmates making hearty buckwheat crepes from scratch. When it’s time for dessert, we’ll walk you through the surprisingly simple steps for making a quintessential French treat: crème brûlée. After mastering the art of cooking by feel, you’ll free yourself from the restraints of recipes and become the intuitive cook you’ve always wanted to be.
