French Cooking Class

  • The Kitchen Collective 811 King Street East Hamilton, ON, L8M 1B1 Canada (map)

After spending time in France recently, Chef Erica has created a menu based on some of the amazing dishes she had the pleasure of eating during the visit. Get familiar with some french cooking terms and techniques and then enjoy this indulgent meal.


Oeufs Meurette de Lyon:  Soft Poached Egg in a Bacon and Mushroom Bourguignonne Sauce with Rustic Croutons and Fleur de Sel

Classic Buckwheat Crepe with Tender Duck Confit, Roasted Cherries and Crushed Chestnuts served with a salad of Mixed Organic Greens and a Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette

Apple Tarte Tatin: Caramelized Apples melted into Puff Pastry and finished with a hand whipped Chantilly Cream

Don’t be THAT person, show up prepared! We have a few requirements to ensure you have a great class

  1. Closed toed shoes: Maybe not stiletto’s ( you’ll be standing and working so be comfy and safe)

  2. Tie back hair: Bring on the man bun (its beautiful and lush but we don’t want to eat it. Shake out your gorgeous mane when you sit at the dining table to enjoy dinner)

  3. Remove large jewelry: You fashionista you, (imagine your necklace falls in the sauce or your bracelet gets stuck on that pan and tosses it on the ground…I’ve seen both. It happens and it’s no good, so lets avoid it)

  4. WASH YOUR HANDS: Vigorously and often (I know you’re going to want to take pics of your amazing creations and family/friends/partners working and we LOVE that. Snap the pics, post on instagram and then wash your hands and get back into it, the food is not going to cook itself people)

  5. You can’t eat what?: Oh, you poor soul (please let us know of any allergies or dietary restrictions before the class. We can accommodate almost anything as long as we know about it ahead of time. Give us a quick call when you book or a few days before and we’ll work it out)

  6. Im STARVING: Just don’t be hangry ( you’ll have lots to eat in during our Hands-on classes so bring your appetite)
