Have you ever wondered about the origins of French cuisine? This seminar will trace the flavors and traditions of French cooking to the royal courts of medieval and Renaissance France. These courts embraced the art of dining, producing celebrity chefs and cookbooks, exquisite entremets, and eventually national dishes and customs. In particular, we will explore the development of courtly dining through accounts of several historic feasts, delving into a world of edible sculptures, fountains of wine, and extravagant performances.
Four sessions. E – $195, R – $214.50
