The Culinary Loft, which puts on food events throughout the year, is giving their holiday offerings a French twist.
Paule Caillat, owner of Promenades Gourmandes in Paris, and Rosa Jackson, owner Les Petits Farcis in Nice, will teach a series of four pre-Christmas workshop from December 16 through 19.
Paule’s workshops will focus on cheese and chocolate. In Rosa’s workshops, you will explore two ingredients more closely associated with southern France and the Mediterranean: saffron and honey. Dishes such as chicken bouillabaisse with saffron-scented rouille and pear tart with hazelnuts and lavender honey are on the menu.
