These classes hide a lounging philosophy. Even if I love to spend a big part of my daily life baking and cooking, someday all that I need is a simple comforting dinner to cook in no time and zero stress, surrounded by a kids crew, sipping a glass of Bordeaux while the aroma of your cozy tuesday dinner fill up the house. I’d love to introduce you to this wonderful cooking attitude, so fast and good.

If you struggle with wheat issues, if someone of your family needs to avoid gluten and you are trying to combine a gluten and a gluten free kitchen, as I do, it will be my pleasure to help you in this potentially stressfull need.
The private class allows full gluten menu. I will walk with you trough the pure classic Italian and French recipes: attending the miracle of a perfectly raised brioche, cooking the best al dente pasta, merging it with different velvety sauce, creating a perfectly flaky all-butter crust for sweet or savory tarts. And much more.
Once you have a handle on a few different techniques, you’ll look forward to impressing family and friends with classic italian and french dinners.
