Craving the rich foods of a traditional French Bistro but can’t make the trip across the pond? Chef Joe Maglio, the former Saucier Chef at Las Vegas’ Palace Court, takes you on a fun-filled ... morejourney of the menu of a classic French Bistro without ever leaving downtown Boston. 

You’ll start your Selfup cooking experience with the traditional Escargot de Bourguignonne - snails sauteed with a homemade compound butter so that the tender, clean flavor of the snails weaves into the savory bite of garlic butter, the tang of perfectly selected white wine, and the gentle snap of shallots. To elevate it further, you’ll work your sinfully rich snails into a puff pastry, complete with a richly complex gorgonzola cream sauce. 

Your next course - the Filet au Poivre - is certain to spoil your taste buds with a spicy demi glace made from the filet drippings, Brandy, and green peppercorns. A prime cut of meat expertly paired with a sauce so delicious you’re sure to be sopping it up with a baguette makes an impeccable main course. 

The only dish that could follow a meal like this is the classic Bananas Foster. You’ll learn how to recreate this flambeed tableside classic in your own kitchen as you caramelize bananas until their natural sugars crystalize, and then are served warm over vanilla ice cream. 

This cooking class is a perfect romantic night out for couples, or fun adventure for friends or coworkers. After your au revoir, you’ll be able to recreate these French Bistro classics in your own kitchen.

Thank you from the WORST cook ever!
Chef Joe, Thank you so much for your kindness and expertise during your virtual class this week! You were so great and so patient and it was much appreciated! Everyone loved it and still talking about how delicious it was. I can't believe that I actually made something edible (minus the few parts of raw, unpounded chicken). Mary Iannella (Takeda- Chicken Picatta group)
