Cooking Classes
Dining Room
My family heritage is French and I was raised to honor old country values, as such I inherited the "old country"
belief that food and wine are inseparable companions.
It's a shame, but somehow food and wine became separated in this country.
Fortunately knowledgeable writers, restauranteurs and wine lovers have been doing everything possible to
increase the awareness of the natural placement of a bottle of wine on the table accompanying a meal.
Yes, to truly appreciate a good meal or a good bottle of wine you do need the other, after all wine is a food,
meant to be enjoyed as an integral part of both everyday and special occasion meals.
I think the most effective way to spread this message is by creating an exciting food and wine experience here at L'Auberge Edge of Seattle.

Below we have done just that!
n to cook

Regional Cooking Class from the Loire Valley of France ON November 14, 2015 Saturday
Four course dinner menu from Alsace Region of France, look forward to an exceptional menu reminiscent of the bounty of this lush region known for a Franco-Germanic influences.  It is the land of the famous wine road, the place where they still actively speak a French dialect called Alsatian, along with French and German and it is the home of some of the most delicious delectable and enjoyable wines.  The countryside can be described as pastorial with gentle slopes, and importantly to me is that this is the region where my family comes from. So I am particularly fond of the cuisine...our cookbook French Cuisine a Traditional Experience is full of recipes from Alsace.

The combination of flavors and the fresh local ingredients makes this menu a wonderful treat!   When picking your wines to marry with our menu think about Gewurztraminer, Dry Crisp Rieslings, and Light Sylavners.


Join French Chef, Christine Oliveri,
in "la cuisine" and with her guidance learn to prepare a meal of traditional regional dishes of Alsace.

Chef Christine, a French native, was born and raised in Paris, the City of Light. She's been living in America for 15 years and is now a US citizen.  Not only is she an excellent cuisiniere she guides you and applies her perfectionist character trait to her cuisine.
