12:00pm -3:00pm

Bring a bit of France to your kitchen with four authentic French recipes designed by Chef Paul.  You’ll start off by making a mesclun salad with a blend of arugula, leafy lettuces and endive topped with Chef Paul’s No-Fail vinaigrette (you will use this recipe forever, je vous assure). For the main course you’ll prepare a classic Cornish hen – a great substitue for a whole roasted chicken, and with a shorter cooking time – with a paprika rub. To accompany this, you’ll prepare Chef Paul’s favorite nutmeg-spiced scalloped potatoes. For dessert, whip up a dreamy raspberry soufflé (Oui, mon ami, you can) completely from scratch.
