Cook Au Vin

With baskets full of hand-plucked, wild blueberries, Vincent Colombet and his cousins happily crammed into their Alsatian grandmother's tiny kitchen. In that quaint room, equipped with only a wood-burning cast-iron stove, Vincent learned over the years how to tuck berries into pies, prepare meats sourced from neighboring farms, and eventually produce elaborate meals for his entire family.

Driven by his passion for French family-style cuisine, he traveled to Paris before a longing for experiences abroad tugged him across the pond and into the arms of the Windy City in 2004. The following year he opened Cook Au Vin, where he leads three-hour BYOB cooking classes centered around classic techniques and organic ingredients. Patrons may also enlist the Cook Au Vin team to cater special events, or swing by Colombet's Lincoln Square bakery, La Boulangerie, for butter-infused inhalations, freshly made crepes, and crusty baguettes.

Customer Reviews

Food was good, knowledgeable chef, a lot of fun, but pricey without groupon.

The class was so much fun! We had a great menu and all participated in the creation of all aspects of it. The chef showed us what to do and then let us loose to do it, with supervision. The results were delicious!
