Hors d'oeuvres Cooking Classes, held every Tuesday from 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm $130.00 P/Person
Les Hors D'oeuvres, Tapas and Appetizers are adjectives used to describe small portions of food served before a meal or served instead of a meal. There is no limit to what sort of item can be considered an hors d'oeuvre provided it is served as a smaller portion before the main meal, or instead of the main meal. Our class should be considered as a Two Course supper cooking class, even though is under the category of Hors d'oeuvres and Appetizers, as what we learn to make and serve is enough for supper. We think this series is bound to be a crowd pleaser. Each Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall season is represented by different French menus. We repeat each group per seasonal quarter and then on to the next season, so please come back for the next season to experience those gourmet cooking menus. Reservations are essential.
