A Vegetable Tart Almost to Beautiful to Eat

This “rose” vegetable tart takes a little bit of time to put together. The mandolin-cut vegetables are arranged in the “rose” pattern. The recipe for easy pie crust is below, you can skip this step and buy prepared ready-to-bake pie dough in the store. However, we don’t think the quality is quite the same as Chef Eric’s. Just say’n…

Let’s Eat the World - Cook’n With Class Experiences

Cook’n With Class has been in operation since 2007 in Paris offering French cooking classes (in English), to visiting tourists and locals interested in learning about the art of French cuisine from baking, French desserts, and French market classes that include market tours.

Chef Eric Fraudeau, who worked both in France and internationally (in Mexico, the United States, and Canada), along with his wife Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau, opened a second cooking school in southern France (Cook’n With Class Uzes) in 2015 focused on Mediterranean and Provencal Cuisine with hands-on French market classes and their very popular culinary holiday tour - The Week in Uzès. 2020 saw the birth of their latest brand which has since replaced their southern French cooking school - Let’s Eat The World - Cook’n With Class Experiences. Let’s Eat The World continues the tradition of Cook’n With Class to offer quality culinary experiences with vacation tours, masterclass workshops, and now, online cooking classes to bring French, Mediterranean, and Spanish cuisine directly into the homes of food and travel enthusiasts.

Join Chef Eric for a Week in Uzes, a Week in Paris, & coming soon, a Week in Seville for food and wine adventures you will not soon forget. And for those of you who can’t travel or who want to bring the taste of travel into your home kitchen, be sure to check out their online cooking classes.
