The Art of the Parisian Apéro – Entertaining with Hors d’Oeuvres
There’s nothing more Parisian than mingling with friends and making new ones at a sociable apéro, when the French gather over delicate hors d’oeuvres and a glass to welcome the early hours of the evening.
Join us for this quintessential pre-dinner social experience as you create beautiful hors d’oeuvres with your chef, learning hands-on techniques that will include mastering the classic gougères cheese puffs, making your own mayonnaise, invaluable knife skills and the art of presentation that will impress your guests at home.
To finish, mingle with your fellow chefs over your creations and a glass of Kir Royale - with a La Cuisine spin! Vive l’apéro!
