Did you know that our next French cookery workshop is next Thursday?

Isa, our French chef and French teacher, once again is ready to teach a new recipe: une blanquette de poissons aux légumes printaniers et risotto aux petits pois et safran.
La blanquette de veau is a traditional French dish with pieces of veal cooked in a white sauce with wine and mushrooms. So une blanquette de poisson must be prepared in a white sauce too! The only way to discover exactly what it is is to book a place on the course, as soon as possible: for more info...
