Chef Vincent’s approach to learning to cook is all about being relaxed and having fun together: a little bit of wine, some conversation, some laughs, some bread and cheese, some more wine, and a lot of cooking in between!
Our cooking classes last usually four hours. The class begins with an apéritif with fresh bread, cheese and charcuterie. Then you will be provided caps and aprons to begin cooking. For the next several hours, you can expect to cook the entire meal yourselves, under the guidance of the chef. It is very hands-on, with him actually touching the food as little as possible. Then, dinner is plated and served for you to enjoy the fruits of your labor together in our cozy dining area. Everyone is encouraged to bring 1-2 bottles of wine (we are BYOB)
