Join Betty Rosbottom for another class featuring food inspired by her visits to Paris. The menu is perfect for crisp autumn days. For an opener Betty will show you how to make a savory walnut and chèvre galette (prepared with purchased puff pastry) that takes only minutes to assemble. The centerpiece of the meal will be a fork-tender veal ragout with tomatoes, white beans, and crushed fennel seeds served over buttered fettuccine. A salad of mixed greens, Belgian endive, and haricots verts, all tossed in an orange vinaigrette and garnished with golden croutons, pairs beautifully as a side to the veal. A glorious dessert—a caramel-studded dark chocolate cake offered warm with scoops of homemade creme fraiche ice cream-is the winning finale! Come along as Betty whisks you off to the City of Light with this delicious French meal.
