Auberge de Seattle Inn & Specialty French Cooking School
I am sitting on a train on my way to Montpellier, France (30 minutes form the Mediterranean) watching the beautiful lush French countryside. It is warm in France and the scent of flowers in bloom everywhere is really surprising to me. As the saying goes..."spring is in the air" with wisteria, lilac and jasmine...then of course there is also the smell of coffee and pastries that you also can't help but notice. My sense of smell is on high alert for all of the smells that I don't normally experience in Seattle. Yesterday, it was 77 degrees in Paris, while in Seattle it was only 52. One always hears about traveling to Europe in the summer, but April (flights are cheaper) is under estimated and should not be over looked next time you are thinking about planning your trip to Europe.
Even though I am in France...I am still thinking about my work. The month of May is just around the corner with lots of cooking classes coming up that I think you will find both interesting and appealing. On our cooking website: Edgeof-seattle-cooking.com we have three Regional Cooking Classes posted for May; each one being taught by a different chef: Chef Philippe Naud, Chef George Stevenson and Chef Sally McArthur. Chef Philippe's menu is from the Atlantic region of France (mainly fish), Chef George is doing a totally Crab menu and "five courses", and Chef Sally is doing a menu from the south of France, Provence.
By the time you read this, I will be back in Seattle, refreshed and inspired with new ideas and looking forward to the busy summer season ahead...see you soon, a bientot!
