Imagine food as an experience, no just a meal.  Imagine food as one of the key ways to communicate!

How I see my world
I believe that people want to cook and be connected to the food they eat. Our cookbook French Cuisine a Traditional Experience is my personal
quest to educate everyone who has a desire to become a better cook. 
This is your opportunity to ...touch, smell, taste and experience for yourself
recipes that are almost a lost art form.

Our cooking classes are located within Auberge de Seattle Inn, in the Woodinville Wine Country, on the Eastside of Seattle. 

Originally a five acre private estate that has now been developed into a commercial establishment.
You won't find our classes to be held in the cold and industrial type of cooking class kitchen...we take our cues from the warm and homey
French "manoirs" in the Loire Valley of France. 
Our classes are unique culinary experiences for those interested
in a non-threatening hands-on cooking environment under the
guidance of one of innovative chefs.   Our focus is on French "CLASSICAL" cuisine, compared to French Haut Cuisine.. 
We welcome our guests to meander on our grounds and
visit our "potager" vegetable garden.    When the weather and
climate permits you will join us as we harvest from the
garden for your cooking class.  We are considered a
culinary destination and welcome visitors from around the world
to our French Country Inn and Cooking School.
Auberge Edge of Seattle; French Cooking Classes are managed by the chef who is doing the class, and therefore; the classes are focused on things he or she is most passionate about:  experimentation, tradition,  
quality and flavor, perfection and pleasure.  The menus express the chef's
energy, curiosity, depth of knowledge and sense of wonder at the culinary possibilities one has yet to discover.  All of our Chef's are French Classically Culinary Trained.
