MERCERSBURG: The Mercersburg Inn To Host French Cooking Class Weekend

September 13 - September 15

 

THE CLASS
The weekend includes two classes. You arrive Friday afternoon/evening and the first class starts directly after breakfast on Saturday morning. The second class starts after breakfast on Sunday. These are two intensive (hands-on) cooking classes and (of course) fabulous meals for you to enjoy are the results. Saturday night’s Chef’s Dinner, prepared by the Inn’s Chef de Cuisine Dan Nowalk, is an elegant gala event.

 

 

This is not a class where you sit, and someone teaches. This is a hands-on, fun weekend. Chef Francois will do a demonstration and then discuss the menu and recipes. Then the group splits into teams and each prepares one course of the lunch. This is for all skill levels. Got a question, want to know how to do something, Chef Francois is right there.
