This cooking program is dedicated to the Bistro Cuisine or to the trendy Tapas celebrating the classics of the French gastronomy through authentic and delicious recipes which are easy to make especially when you learn it with a French Pro who will be also delighted to provide tips...
Our bistro menus can include meat stews such as bœuf bourguignon, navarin d'agneau, blanquette de veau, hachis Parmentier (potatoes purée and ground beef gratin), chicken Made-in-Normandy (organic chicken legs flambé with Calvados and cooked in cider with mushrooms and apples). As a starter, you find the legendary French onion soup, oeufs mimosa (boiled eggs with mayonnaise), caramelized shallots or eggplant "Tatin". Traditional desserts are clafoutis, crème brulée, caramel cream, ile flottante (poached whipped egg whites with creme anglaise).
Tapas is another great option for buffet diners with friends. Originally from Spain and the Basque country but very popular in France, these trendy finger foods are prepared with ham, cheese, fish, shellfish, vegetables, olives and olive oil… served on bread on in a tiny dish.
Bistro-style and tapas menus can be prepared in advance, giving the chance to home-cooks, to stay at the table with guests.
