Coach P and Madame Pate, Instructors

Most of us probably won’t be spending Valentine’s day in Paris this year, but that won’t stop us from bringing the romantic magic of French cuisine into your home. Join us in preparing a delicious meal, featuring a vegan / vegetarian main dish, accompanied by a succulent fish and an indulgent chocolate dessert! Just like last time, featuring a healthy dose of language and history exploration.
