Young French Chefs in Training
Parents have a relaxing night out while your little ones and their friends will be cooking and having a merry old time in their very own dinner party!
As per the request of many of our clients, this time the menu is an egg-free menu.
As Edith Sitwell said, “Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth…” Which is exactly what our little chefs will be experiencing for themselves! Our chefs-in-training will stay warm and satisfy their taste buds with the following menu. They will prepare a traditional recipe of Ratatouille (a veggie stew), which is a French Provençal dish from the city of Nice, France. To complement the stew, we will prepare tasty garlic baguettes. To top it off, the final item on the chefs’ list of recipes for the evening will be a widely-loved dessert; chocolate-dipped fruit skewers. Can you say YUM?
Fresh smoothies and juice will be served!
Instructions will be given in French and English. Children from the French immersion and French schools are highly encouraged to participate.

Previous Cooking Classes
We feel so inspired by our young chefs in the making! Check out our gallery and the menus below from some of our previous classes.
December 2017: The children whipped up some mouth-watering gratin dauphinois (potato and broccoli au gratin), a delicacy from the Dauphine region of France. Using the French culinary “gratin” technique, our little chefs topped up the dish in a casserole with tuna, cheese and butter, grilled to perfection to create a golden crusty top layer. They then baked chocolate French biscuits as their yummy dessert.
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 was enjoyed with fresh garlic bread that children would have prepared. Following on the heels of the appetizing soup, the little chefs were 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.
