Vegetarian French Cooking Class in Paris

In our Paris Vegetarian Cooking Class, you will learn about three things: French Food, French Culture and Vegetarian Cooking. While French Food traditionally boasts an array of meat oriented dishes, the French cooking repertoire is also full of beautiful and luscious vegetarian dishes: from Ratatouille to Gratin Dauphinois, from Dubarry Velouté to Cheese Soufflé, from Aligot to Crêpes Suzettes. And yes you will notice we said vegetarian, not quite vegan – as French vegetarian still relies on dairy and eggs. But another interesting aspect of French Vegetarian cooking is to adapt some traditional recipes and make them vegetarian – and in the process learn a ton about traditional French cooking techniques. We do this for example with our Onion Soup which is traditionally prepared with Beef Broth but can be made vegetarian and … yes, even more delicious. Same for a traditional Red Wine Sauce known as sauce marchand de vin (the wine merchant sauce). So we hope you will join one of these hands-on, small group, fun and instructive French Vegetarian Cooking Classes soon.
