France has much to see and to offer. The smells of baking bread, roasting coffee, and cooking food lingers in the air. The Eiffel Tower shines brightly in the Seine River’s waters. The sun beats down hot on the vineyards and the wine is sweet and refreshing.
Unfortunately, as beautiful as the country may be, visiting France is expensive. Even here in the United States, French food with a cheap price tag is hard to find.
What if you could have the luxuriousness of French culture with the comfort of your own home?
This semester, we will be offering several cooking courses on a variety of French foods. From sweetly smoky Crème Brûlée, to rich and savory Tart Flambée, to vegetarian-friendly Ratatouille, these courses will let you enjoy a piece of France without breaking the bank.
