During the gourmet cooking classes, the group splits up and each section takes charge of one part of the menu. The class kicks off with a demonstration, and then students follow their way through the recipes with help from the chef on hand. Once the food is ready, students take a seat while their meal is served to them with an included glass of wine. Alternatively, during the wine class, a sommelier spends more than two hours talking about wine and discussing pairings while a chef highlights the dishes served. The menu changes, but upcoming dishes include pan-seared salmon and lentils, petite fillet of beef au poivre, and frozen berry-and-cognac terrine paired with the likes of Angeline pinot noir and Saint Cosme rouge. Check the calendar for upcoming sessions.
