Cooking in Papillote

July 28 at 6pm

The French term en papillote translates as 'in parchment', which perfectly describes the cooking method of preparing fish, meat, or vegetables in a pouch of paper or foil and baking it in the oven. The enclosed parcel traps in any moisture released while cooking, resulting in tender, juicy flesh which is part-steamed, part-baked. In this class, you will learn how to add herbs, spices, and other ingredients to the packet and infuse the finished dish with beautiful, fresh flavors. Make your choice of Moroccan Chicken Tagine en Papillote OR Salmon en Papillote.
