France, a country of many wonders and many diversities also has traditional regional cuisine that is specific to each and every province and region.
In France, every road leads to a splendid food.  More than that, France is a store house of fine ingredients and infinite richness that embraces ancient Regional traditions (zealously retained in spite of new administrative boundaries), the landscape, the flavors of its cuisine and the methods of preparation particular to each small area.  Each Region has maintained the originality of its culinary traditions.  French cuisine is today thought of as a major art form, called French Gastronomy; the cuisine owes this status to the enormous riches of its countryside and to its people who have a history of protecting and guarding their traditional fine cuisine.

We use the best of seasonal fresh ingredients, sans preservatives, additives, or chemicals and you won't see anything frozen or canned used in our cooking classes.  Nor will you find any "GMO" products used here like Canola Oil, Corn products or Soy products.

Indulge yourself or someone extra-special with the gift of an unforgettable experience. Our hands-on regional classes are perfect for every aspiring chef. Our Chefs offer guidance and inspiration to fine-tune your techniques,  as this is all hands-on, it'll be you that will actually prepare the dishes . It's the ultimate way to learn and truly absorb every step of the recipe. Regional Cooking Classes are held once a month on the 2nd Saturday of the month.


All of our classes are held within L'Auberge at The Edge of Seattle Inn. 

In 2013 we were awarded one of the 10 best B&B Culinary Schools in the world by Bed and

Our class sessions are open to the public by appointment only and can also be booked by groups looking for morale/team building opportunities.

Our method of teaching is "Hands-On".  We do not believe in the demonstration method, so plan on doing the cooking.  The movement flow is open, you may walk around and see at any time what others are doing and even join them in what they are doing too.  We strongly feel that unless you do it, you won't feel comfortable repeating the task at home.  There are no hidden tricks...our goal is for you to take the recipes home with you and to reproduce the menu at home.

Regional Cooking Class from the Loire Valley of France ON September 12, 2015 Saturday
Four course dinner menu from Valley de la Loire, look forward to an exceptional menu reminiscent of the bounty of this lush region known as the garden of France.  It is the land of castles, the place where the purest French is spoken and it is the home of some of the most delicious delectable and enjoyable wines.  The countryside can be described as pastorial with gentle slopes, dominated by rivers and the milky blue light of the summer sky...also the place where I spent 5 years as a teenager.

The combination of flavors and the fresh local ingredients makes this menu a wonderful treat!   When picking your wines to marry with our menu think about Vouvray, Touraine, Sancerre, Mascadet, Saumur, Chinon, Pouilly-Fume and Pouilly-sur-Loire come to mind.


Join French Chef, Christine Oliveri,
in "la cuisine" and with her guidance learn to prepare a meal of traditional regional dishes of the Loire Valley.

Chef Christine, a French native, was born and raised in Paris, the City of Light. She's been living in America for 15 years and is now a US citizen.  Not only is she an excellent cuisiniere but you'll also love her out going personality as she applies her perfectionist characteristic trait to her cuisine.
