Cooking with Olivier Straehli: A French Inspired Tasting and Pairing Evening


Event Details


Chef Straehli will prepare a tasting that honors fresh, simple, local ingredients; and pleases the eye and the palate. Participants will join him as he guides them through an evening of French-inspired, locally-sourced delicacies. Using produce from the Hungry Harvest Produce in a SNAP market, and other local ingredients, Chef Straehli will invite us into to see food from a uniquely French perspective. The author of several cookbooks, Chef Olivier Straehli will also demonstrate how to pair the foods served with the right wine. Tasting participant’s will enjoy a menu similar to the following, but again, final menu choices will be made after shopping locally in Frederick. Small plates may consist of tourte à la viande (meat pie), entrée salade betteraves (beet salad), tarte à la rhubarb fromage (cheese/rhubarb pie), and la bouchée à la reine (puff pastry). A wine of Olivier’s choosing will accompany each plate.
