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 Normandy France on February 14, 2015 St. Valentine's Day!
four course dinner menu from Normandy; where the most popular crop is orchards and orchards of Apples, (anything made with Apples, such as Cider and Calavodos Liquor) beautiful grass fed cows who produce world famous Butter, Cream, Cheeses and mild sweet tasting fish from the ocean.  The combination of these flavors and use of the freshest local ingredients make this class one not to be missed!  
Our recipe for helping you celebrate this romantic holiday is to mix one part technique with two parts food and presentation.  Garnish with hospitality, then serve and Voila, the French Joie de Vivre for this special St. Valentine Celebration
