Take a trip to France in springtime with this VIRTUAL course focused on the fundamental techniques that make French cooking world renowned. Join Certified Executive Chef Bill Twaler as he guides you through every step of the process for slowly cooking chicken in wine to make coq au vin—a dish in which extraordinary flavors develop from humble origins.
In this course, you’ll learn the essential techniques for braising and how to create one of the world’s great sauces. You’ll also learn how to make and pipe elegant Duchess potatoes for a side dish that threatens to steal the show. For dessert, Chef Twaler will show you how to turn cooking with wine from savory to sweet as you prepare almond-flavored financiers (mini brown butter cakes) and pair them with a luscious port wine caramel. Bon appetit!
