Join French native Marie Nicoletti for this hands-on workshop featuring three savory and delicious soups from her homeland. Served at the beginning of a meal or as a light meal in itself, savory soups are often synonymous of healthy comfort food that nourish both our body and soul. Paired with a thick slice of country bread or a piece of French baguette, these three earthy soups will be a delight to both create and savor together. Bon appétit ! We will walk through every step of the preparation process, so that you can confidently include French cooking in your weekly menu...
This will be the first workshop in our Spring series on French Country Cooking (Soups, Desserts and Picnic Foods). Throughout this series we will explore the classic regional dishes known as “spécialités regionales” (regional specialties). The biggest trend in cuisine at the moment, and a definite synonym for passion, regional specialties have made a comeback in France and are being served in bistros, as well as fine restaurants all over the country. The result of a quest for delicious, authentic, traditional food, these specialties provide a sustainable rural repertoire for health and happiness.
Most importantly, all participants in this workshop will be able to share in the joy of tasting, as our cooking will culminate in a light lunch of the soups we have prepared.
Instructor Marie Nicoletti is the founder of The Language of Food, created in 2000, a culinary and cultural program that teaches children and adults traditional and regional French cooking classes and French language. She holds a BA in “Applied Foreign Languages for International Business” (in English and Italian) and a Fashion School diploma in Pattern making and Clothes construction. She worked for designers like Yohji Yamamoto, Martin Sitbon, Plein Sud, and Nina Ricci, before moving to Boulder in 1990. She also studied cooking from the age of 8 years old, in an after-school program, and since then she has never stopped nourishing this passion. Marie’s goal is to pass down to new generations everything she’s learned since she was little--when arts and crafts, cooking, and music naturally held a big part on the map of education.
This workshop is offered by the Living Arts School, a folk school in Boulder County.
