French Cooking at Home!

I love Cook’n with Class! The online experience with Eric seems like you are right in the kitchen with him. I especially appreciate his style of providing cultural and historical information along with substitute/alternative ingredients. You can cook along at the same time or just watch and cook later. Having participants from around the world with you adds diversity, expands on the availability of ingredients, and makes you feel like you are traveling. Yetunde prepares us with tips and recipes before classes start. The best promotion I can make is the very positive response from my family—keep these French creations coming!

Fun on-line class

Last weekend I participated in an on-line class with Chef Eric . What fun...informative, too! We were sent the recipes for Fish in Papillote and Caleriac in Papillote. The recipes are well-written and easy to follow, but there is nothing like watching a chef actually working through all the steps. I have taken many classes at Cook'n with Class in Paris and never been disappointed, but until we can return to France again, this is a really nice alternative. I highly recommend Chef Eric's on-line classes.

Great Cooking Experiences with Chef Eric

We just did an online class with Chef Eric, cooking fish en papillote (parchment) on top of zucchini with a cream sauce. There was also a vegetarian option. Chef Eric was a wonderful teacher.They emailed us the recipes ahead of time so we could do any necessary prep before we cooked with him. Eric’s wife, Yetunde did the chat and relayed any questions to Eric to answer. The meal was delicious! We will make it again!

Several years ago we also did the French Market class at Cook’n with Class Paris. It was also wonderful. We still make the duck breast and several other recipes we learned that day.

We have signed up for the Week in Uzes (Provence) class but we have had to postpone that due to the COVID-19 situation. We hope to be able to travel to France next Spring to cook with Eric and Yetunde for a week in Provence!
