Chef Karl Wilder teaches small groups of students to prepare multicourse meals using as many local, organic ingredients as possible. As students do the cooking, the chef offers experienced instruction, teaching students refined cooking techniques, such as how to emulsify a vinaigrette. After each session, students may dine on their meals, which include wine pairings. The Chef at Home program strikes a philanthropic tune as well, as it was created to support 'Stirring the Pot', a free program that teaches disadvantaged Diabetics in Harlem how to cook at home.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Calliope’s Real Greek Food is a journey into my family’s true love for good quality, home cooked meals.
What can a student expect in one of your classes?
Students get to taste all dishes prepared in class, take home some of the dishes cooked and receive a recipe packet at the end of each lesson.

What do you love most about your job?
It is so much fun to share my tradition with my students and show them that preparing a healthy, home cooked meal is easier than they think.

Options include beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips, raspberry and sherry trifles, and house-made jam with scones. In addition to sampling the cuisine afterward, attendees can also savor a complimentary glass of Pimm’s, sparkling wine, or tea, or ask their hosts for practice pronouncing "color" with an extra "u."
Simon Herfray, a French native hailing from the Vendée region, is a master's-degree-certified pastry chef and baker. He's whisked and sculpted fine treats for esteemed establishments in the London and New York culinary scenes—Aubaine and Bluebird in South Kensington, Falai and Café M Studio in Manhattan, and Bacchus Bistro and La Défense Bistro in Brooklyn.
At French'Encas, Simon directs his world-class sweetmeat techniques toward kitchens full of apron-wearing students and in-disguise dentists. Whether it's their first or hundredth time gripping pastry bags and whisks, attendees handcraft their very own macarons, chocolate-lemon tarts, chocolate fondant, and full quiche lorraine meals.
