Take a hands on, semi private cooking class in the heart of Paris with an English speaking cook. And a Countess to boot! Welcome to cooking with Countess Rosabelle where you will learn to prepare Parisian favorites influenced by Rosabelle's travels around the world.
Born in 1960 on an Alberta ranch near Calgary, Countess Rosabelle left Canada with her parents, East European aristocrats - at the age of 11, first to North Africa, then to the wonderfully hospitable South-West of France. She became a student in Paris and with a degree in English Literature and Art History, she worked for almost twenty years in the art business before completely changing her professional activity to teaching her "Introduction to French cooking" courses.
Each participant is given a copy of all the recipes in English, which are read, then explained either in English, French or both with special attention given to the culinary vocabulary. The practical, hands-on class then starts. Her recipes are very easy and practical to make but at the same time adding a little modernity to traditional meals. The menu changes daily and monthly so there is always something different.
Everybody takes an active part in the making of all the recipes (peeling, chopping, stirring, tasting, etc). Preparation and cooking are done in Rosabelle's kitchen, meals are served in the dining-room and last between 45 minutes and an hour. Enjoy a quick cup of coffee or herbal tea in the sitting room as you gather the recipes which have been annotated, add a cover-sheet with the menu of the day and bind them with a piece of ribbon.
