Sun., June 10, 2012 | 11 am – 1:30 pm

Tastings are scheduled at 11 am and 1 pm and include recipe demonstrations as well as sample bites of the featured cuisine. Seating is limited.

Thanks to support from our sponsor, PCC Natural Markets, the Burke will host tastings throughout the run of the Hungry Planet exhibit.

Regarded as a culinary nation where famous chefs and foods are born, French cuisine is at the height of refined dining, involving the mind and all of the senses. Simple ingredients such as locally grown fruits, vegetables, and fungi along with fresh, baked goods such as baguettes and croissants can be used in elaborate meals and desserts. Discover more about French cuisine with PCC Cooks instructor, Lynne Vea’s sample of chilled green pea bisque with tarragon, morels, and Dungeness crab.

With a background in the restaurant and catering industry for over 20 years, Lynne Vea is a graduate of the Executive Chef Program at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Seattle. With a passion for old cookbooks and hunting for wild berries and mushrooms, she loves to entertain with seven-course meals where dance and play are happily welcomed in between courses.
