At The French Library Get Directions
About this EventThis event will begin in the Center's charming kitchen with a two-part cooking workshop led in English. Jérôme Bergère, Maître d’Hôtel and General Manager of La Voile restaurants, will share the secrets behind one of La Voile’s most beloved menu items—truffle risotto.
Then, Tim, from D’Artagnan Fine Foods will explain how to perfectly select, prepare, and cook foie gras. Each participant will get to take home their very own terrine to share and/or enjoy at home.
After the workshop, we will enjoy champagne in our ballroom and at a dinner table dressed-to-impress by the expert hands of French silversmiths Christofle.
Finally, dine with your fellow participants and indulge in delicious terrine de foie gras prepared by La Voile and the truffle risotto you crafted along with champagne, wine, and dessert. Bon appetit !
About La Voile
La Voile, “the sail” in French, is an authentic French brasserie imported from the South of France, with unmatched success on elegant Newbury street. The original “ La Voile au Vent”, as it was called, was founded in 1947 and was one of the oldest and most appreciated restaurants in Cannes. They say that Hemingway, a regular patron at one time, even wrote about it in his novels.
Since 1830, Parisian silversmith Christofle are masters of creating elegant pieces for the table, sophisticated jewelry, and stunning home accessories and furniture. Offering Christofle as a gift, to others or oneself, is to experience the art of living at its most joyful.
For more than 30 years, D’Artagnan has been committed to free-range, natural production and sustainable, humane farming practices. They partner with small farms and ranches that have the strictest standards to never use added antibiotics or hormones, and sign affidavits to that effect. The team is passionate about quality from the farm to your fork, which is why their products products hold pride of place in professional and home kitchens alike.
