Culinary Adventure in Southwest France

Our Sunday sessions with Tess Kelly, Sèraphine Workshops, have been so wonderful that we're taking the show on the road! Next June, we're going to a gorgeous renovated 18th century mill house in Fléac-sur-Seugne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, at the heart of the Charente vineyards on the edge of a small village on the Seugne river, where for four days we'll venture into local markets gathering ingredients to take home and transform into...

Croquembouche with Tess Kelly, Séraphine Workshops

Traditionally served at weddings and baptisms, I always imagine no royal's dessert table was ever complete without one of these precarious towers of luscious candied cream puffs.  If ever there was a special occasion dessert....this is it!  With the holiday season approaching (gulp), we thought this would be a fun one to bust out to inspire some festive tablescapes.  We'll bak up an army of heavenly puffs with pâte...

Raw Organic Vinegar with Jori Jayne Emde, Lady Jayne’s Alchemy

I met Jori in 2006 working together on the development of a restaurant concept in NYC with Zak Pelaccio.  We were immediately bonded by wit, sass, passion and most-interestingly our shared (borderline) commitment to doing everything to its absolute fullest and best. Since that project, I've watched her evolve into a master of her craft...from the first test bottle she gifted me of her now famous Worcestershire (note: I've...

Vietnamese with Corinne Trang

Refined, subtle, challenging, and accessible all at the same time, the food of Vietnam was the first true fusion cuisine, blending the techniques and ingredients of French and Chinese culinary traditions.  In this workshop led by Corinne Trang, author of the award-winning book, “Authentic Vietnamese Cooking: Food From a Family Table,” we'll explore this exciting cuisine through the lens of a James Beard award-winning chef.  Born in France's Loire Valley to...

Sourdough with Peter Barrett, Cook Blog

Sourdough baking may seem complicated, with so many variables that can affect the outcome. In this workshop we'll learn one master dough recipe and use it to make bread, rolls, pita, pizza, and even bagels--so we see how the ways in which we shape, proof, and bake the dough can change the outcome, while simultaneously increasing your repertoire of homemade baked goods using only one recipe. Each student will receive...

Ramen & Beyond with Corinne Trang

When people think ramen they think of the Japanese soup, but ramen is actually based on the Chinese egg noodle.  After World War II, fueled by a rice shortage in Japan and the subsequent influx of cheap wheat which the US flooded into the Japanese market, in combination with a newfound taste for wheat noodles by Japanese troops returning from China, the ramen noodle as we now know it...
