Culinary Demonstration Class

What to Expect:

Cuisine Karen offers a Culinary Demonstration Class featuring at least two dishes based on a seasonal menu.

Students gather at 10:00am, sign-in and put on a name tag. Everyone takes a seat, and recipes are provided to all. Most ingredients have been prepared and measured; however, when teaching technique or a specific skill (such as peeling garlic, or slicing an onion), the featured vegetable is reserved for demonstrating such technique.

Throughout the class, you will have several moments to stretch your legs, move about, and have a nice cool glass of "spa" water.

You are then offered samples of each dish that is prepared, along with garden-fresh salad greens with a homemade vinaigrette and freshly baked bread from Serenity Farms. You will have the option to enjoy a glass of wine chosen to specifically complement the meal. Class duration is 3 hours, ending at 1:00pm. Don't forget to take home your recipes!

If the weather is nice, you may wish to take a self-guided tour of Patou's Gardens, Patrice's organic herb and vegetable garden surrounding the house.

 
 


Hands-on Cooking Class

What to Expect:

For those who enjoy the experience of participating, Cuisine Karen offers a Hands-on Tasting Lunch featuring a either a first course and main dish, or main dish and dessert. Either way, garden-fresh salad greens with a homemade vinaigrette and freshly baked bread from Serenity Farms are provided, along with a full portion of the prepared dishes.

Students gather at 10:00am, sign-in and put on a name tag. If the weather is nice, we will take a brief tour of Patou's Gardens ~ Patrice's organic herb and vegetable garden ~ with special emphasis on the culinary herbs and whatever locally-grown produce we may need in class.

We return to the kitchen, and everyone is presented with an apron and dishtowel to use during class. You will be supplied with all necessary utensils and equipment to carry out the tasks at hand. French coffee is offered, as is an unlimited supply of Karen's "spa" water.

Together, we prepare the meal from start to finish, then enjoy and contemplate our creations during an informal tasting lunch. You will have the option to enjoy a glass of wine chosen to specifically complement the meal. We finish in the French style with a cup of coffee and square of dark chocolate. Class duration is 4 - 4 1/2 hours, ending between 2:00-2:30pm. Since this class involves participation from everyone, class size is limited to 10 people.
