Mushrooms and More...an On Rue Tatin tradition! Please, join me and like-minded mushroom fanciers for a deliciously delectable ride through the world of mushrooms. We’ll cook them, powder them, slice them over pasta; we’ll turn them into soups and salads, we’ll roam the local forest with our favorite mushroom guide and bring home basketsful to sauté, braise, grill and feast upon; to top it off, we'll visit a local mushroom cave too. After a mushroom class with me at On Rue Tatin you're likely to be addicted, to everything from morels to death trumpets, to any number of wild and savory mushrooms. Four days, hands-on classes, meals with wines to match!

Welcome to my Paris Market Tours, for groups of four or more!
For our Paris market tour, we will meet up at a local café over an espresso, then head into a lively Paris market where I’ll show you how to shop for locally produced, seasonal ingredients. We’ll talk about the French dedication to quality and its influence on the world; we’ll delve into seafood and bread, gorgeous spring radishes and crisp winter lettuces; juicy summer fruits and the perfect roast chicken. As we walk we’ll meet vendors and producers, we’ll sample the best that’s to offer, and we’ll get inside the French world of the market, its personalities, its food. You will emerge from our tour with a whole new way of looking at and thinking about ingredients, the people who produce and sell them, and a country that bases much of its worth and reputation on the quality of its food.
The fee for a Paris Market Tour is 110 €.

I'm more than thrilled to be returning to Asheville, North Carolina, a small jewel of a city whose food culture is rich in tradition, deep in culture, lively in innovation. With Asheville and its food culture as our backdrop, we will cook together for three days, in a professionally equipped kitchen near the Biltmore mansion. Our ingredients will come from local farms and producers; recipes and wines will be French (with a few Italian accents included), meals will be leisurely. As we cook, I will give you tricks, tips, and hints that I've learned during my thirty year cooking career in France, and you will leave your Asheville experience with a new-found confidence in the kitchen.
Our cooking class will include three hands-on classes, three meals, a field trip to visit an artisan food producer, and many tastes of local products. You will be thrilled and delighted with the quality of cheeses, breads, meats, seafood and local produce, and I will make sure that you leave the class with French techniques, recipes adapted to the home cook, and answers to all your cooking questions.
I will also offer an individual evening class for those who cannot free themselves during the day.
The price for the three day class, which includes three hands-on classes, three meals, and a field trip with samples is $1,200. The cost for an evening class is $295.
To sign up, and for all questions, please contact email@example.com
All deposits to On Rue Tatin are non-refundable. Should On Rue Tatin need to cancel the class for any reason, however, all monies will be refunded.

I’ve planned three glorious days of cooking in sunny Los Angeles, just for you! Come join me!
As part of our hands-on class - which will be held in the wonderful kitchen of Martha Rose Shulman, internationally recognized cookbook author, and New York Times Recipes for Health columnist, you’ll learn French techniques, and how to combine flavors, textures, and dishes to make authentic French meals. Whether your favorite dish is roasted fish with pearls of lime, grilled baby eggplant with herbed fresh cheese, a sorbet of blood oranges with pistachios, gorgeous flaky pastry filled with perfectly ripened berries, or heirloom tomato “tubes,” you’ll walk away from our classes with dozens of inspired ideas, and the skills to realize them!
Once the cooking is done, we’ll enjoy meals à la française. You’ll slip easily into the luxury and generosity that implies – apéritifs in the kitchen, followed by multi-course meals at the table, accompanied by local wines, a bite of cheese, a taste of dessert, and a sip of coffee.
When you’ve cooked your way through the menus I’ve carefully prepared just for you, in the company of other like-minded gastronomes, you’ll be a transformed cook, and a transformed eater!
Three delicious days in Los Angeles, $1200 for three classes; $400 for an individual class.
The three day class includes either three morning classes OR three evening classes.
Morning classes: 10-2:30; Evening classes 5:00-9:30 p.m.
