Summer in France

Duration: 3½ hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Whether you’re dreaming of dining at a sidewalk café or picnicking in the countryside, chef Bruce Naftaly knows a thing or two about how to bring French cooking to your own table. Known as one of the fathers of Northwest cuisine, his seasonal take on French classical cooking gave us Le Gourmand - the powerhouse French restaurant that graced Ballard for years. In this class Bruce will teach you how to turn our bounty of lPacific Northwest summer produce into zucchini and mint soup; roasted tomato and duxelles-filled crepes with gooseberry and dill sauce; roast duck breast with black currant sauce with homemade cassis; classic créme brulée with brandied raspberries.
