Fall Harvest Feast with Tess Kelly, Séraphine Workshops

  • 6:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

Many of you know Tess as the cheery gal who brightens your Sundays, exponentially improving your baking cred with each wonderful passing of an afternoon spent together.  But by night, there’s a whole different side you haven’t yet seen….girlfriend can cook!  We’ve been to her house, we’ve tasted it firsthand and we cordially invite you to spend an evening with us in our kitchen preparing the perfect autumnal feast.

We’ll all work together to make this miraculous three-course meal, before formally sitting down to enjoy it together with some top notch wine pairings by Ester Wine & Spirits that all hail from the Bordeaux region of France–where by no coincidence, we’ll be heading next summer for our four day Culinary Adventure in Southwest France [details here]!

On the Fall Harvest menu we’ll whet our appetites first with some bubbles and Sautéed Porcinis on toast before diving into a Roasted Butternut Soup with beurre noisette.  For the main course, Seared Duck Breast in a red wine reduction with parsnip purèe that we’ll savour while sipping on a lovely red…and for dessert, a Pear Tarte Tatin with crème fraîche and some killer Sauternes.

$125 per student includes 3hr workshop and recipes PLUS eat-what-you-make!

Tess Kelly is a pastry chef and founder of Séraphine Workshops. She relocated to France in 1986 where she developed her love of French cuisine. She apprenticed under the chef of the pâtisserie she lived above in Paris. Madame Bernard took her under her wing and generously shared the art and love of baking French pastries and French cuisine.

After working for several years in the restaurant business in New York City, she opened Séraphine Bakery in 2014.  Since then Tess has developed hands-on workshops for children and adults. Her desire to feed people and share the art of preparing food is the basis of all of her cooking and baking classes.

She currently teaches both private and public workshops in New York, and in France.  Be sure to check out details on next summer’s Culinary Adventure in France by clicking HERE.
