French Language Lesson, Cooking Class & Lunch says
Please join us for our very special, one-of-a-kind lunch event, "Gastronome Jardinere: A French Language Lesson, Cooking Class, and Lunch" with L'enfant Terrible's Matthew Kopfler (l'enfant terrible new orleans) and with French Language Instructor Manon Bellet (Facebook: Français à la carte - New Orleans, website:

The meal will begin with a walk through the garden to look at the ingredients which will be used in the lunch. Walking in the garden gives you a connection to the vegetables, and it can help a cook appreciate their ingredients a bit more. French instructor Manon Bellet, from the Lyon region of France, will translate everything to French, and there will be recipe and language lesson handouts. French vocabulary around cooking, eating, and drinking will be discussed during this fun, participatory event.

The cuisine:

Potage Cressonniere: Nasturtiums are in the cress family and we are having some amazing nasturtiums popping up at the farm. Mentor Farmer Amber Dawn is diligently crafting the plants to maximize their bright spicy flavor in the winter.

Gargouillou: Michel Bras is a well known french chef from Langouile. Breaking from the traditions of french gastronomy, Bras has been a general of the nouvelle cuisine for the last several decades. His effects can be seen and tasted throughout the world, as his vegetable cookery and presentation have influenced countless chefs worldwide. Gargouillou is a taste of what is available in the garden. Different vegetables require different cooking methods, we will cover some of the basic tenants of vegetable cookery.

Buicuits a la Cuillere avec Cafe: lady fingers and coffee are a perfect ending note to our french garden cooking class. Walk around with something caffeinated and something sweet, and take in the beautiful surroundings.

$45 per person, space is limited.
