Today, Julia Child is an American icon. She brought French cooking and cuisine to the American masses in a simple, direct, and straightforward manner. She took much of the mystique and perceived snobbishness out of cooking and emphasized that food should, at all times, please the individual eating it, regardless of the "rules" of what goes with what. Join us as we make some of our chef instructor's favorite recipes from her first cookbook, The Art of Mastering French Cooking. Class is hands-on. Bring an apron and hat or hair net and wear closed-toe shoes. Cost for adults 60 and over $25.50.
