Whether a group cooking class at your office or a private in-home lesson; a fun you-cook or we-cook party or a culinary outing with friends, you are certain to enjoy your experience, taste great seasonal food and take away many helpful tips along with new flavorful recipes. Seasonally-inspired menus from an array of cuisines are offered for your selection and enjoyment. Bertrand’s vast culinary knowledge, relaxed approach and easy to follow techniques are the perfect recipe, for anyone wanting to learn more in the kitchen.
Cooking class party
Cooking is fun, especially when you combine it with good friends, good food, and good wine. Chef Bertrand will meet you at your home and guide you and your friends through a hands on cooking lesson. Cooking parties are fun for everyone too, not only adults. We encourage teens (wine-less, of course) to get into cooking with Chef Bertrand too! Give us a call to talk about your options.
Private in home lessons
Whether you are just learning to cook, a seasoned cook seeking inspiration or have special dietary needs, Chef Bertrand will give you step-by-step practical help to turn you into a skillful master of your own kitchen.
Scheduling is flexible. We can accommodate even the most difficult of schedules! Afternoon, after work, and weekend classes are all available. Classes can be held in any home kitchen in Fairfield County.
Menus are designed to complement the occasion, and can range from Spanish and French, to Caribbean. Creativity and suggestions are encouraged; although we have plenty of ideas if you need inspiration.
