French Chefs in training! Bring your little chefs and their friends for a one-and-half hour dinner party!
The Summer’s officially gone and Autumn’s arrived. To quote the French philosopher, Albert Camus, “Autumn is a second spring, where every leaf is a flower”. To take a cue from that marvelous quote, we’ll let our little chef extraordinaire kick into autumn gear by using their cooking chops to whip up a sumptuous serving of Gratin Dauphinois (Potato and Broccoli au gratin), a specialty from the Dauphine region of France. Using the French culinary “gratin” technique, the chefs will top up ingredients in a casserole with tuna, cheese, and butter which will be grilled to perfection to create a golden brown crust on top. Next on the chefs’ list will be dessert in the form of Chocolate French Biscuits. This is a recipe from my dear mother. They are so delicious, that I have to hide them in my pantry or my kids would eat them all. Yum! All this talk of delightful culinary masterpieces is giving us the munchies!
Fresh Smoothie and juice will be served as well. Join us! Fun and explosion of taste buds guaranteed!
Instructions will be given in both English and French.

Sept 2017: Provencal Tomato Rice Soup, a specialty of the Provence region of France in the South East of France. This rich comforting soup flavored with dry/fresh thyme, fennel, and basil, doesn’t just gives it a rich look but also an exotic aroma and a great texture too.This meal will be enjoyed with fresh garlic bread that children would have prepared. Following on the heels of the appetizing soup, the little chefs will be busy concocting dessert in the form of a moist and fluffy French Apple Upside Down Cake.
June 2017: French onion soup accompanied by the classic French bistro meal, croque monsieur. For dessert, children savored juicy strawberries and peaches in every bite of the classic rustic French dessert clafoutis.
March 2017: The menu comprised of hearty vegetable lentil soup and some mouth-watering Cheese Scones to follow. The kids then indulged in concocting Ice Cream Sundae with Chocolate & Vanilla Pudding with Fruit and Cream.
December 2016: We prepared a Montreal poutine as the French province is well known to be the birthplace of the curd poutine. Along with this perfectly squeaky and fresh cheese poutine, we enjoyed a nice serving of lean flavorful tilapia fish. Children also got to prepare the very popular sables de Paris that are French butter cookies for their desert.
Sept 2016: Children enjoyed a creamy, oozy Mac and Cheese. as well as chopped up fruits and threaded the pieces onto cocktail skewers. To French it up, children enjoyed a specialty hailing from the South of France called Navette de St Victor.
