ABOUT THE ACTIVITY

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 journey 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.

French Bistro Class w/ Joe M

This class is a MUST. Unbelievable experience with Joe as the instructor. His class and expertise make this entire experience complete. Without him, I’m not sure our experience would’ve been as good as it was. The food was incredible, and also easy to recreate if you so desire to recreate the dish at home. Definitely consider this class, even if french bistro isn’t your top choice. You will not be disappointed!

Got this cooking class as a gift from my boyfriend, it was easy to book online, and the classes aren't sold out for months in advance like other places. I have been to an Eataly cooking class as well and this one was so much more fun. Chef Maglio's cooking class was delicious, educational, and a great way to meet other couples. They provide all the wine you could ever need, and we were able to get our hands messy while making the food. The outside of the building doesn't have a self up sign, but there is a doorbell you ring to get allowed in.Highly recommend!

Date Night

What a fantastic and fun night we had! Our chef Joe made the class interesting and exciting at every turn. Delicious food and wine shared with some great new friends. The only down side was there’s no list of recipes to take away. Besides that this class is highly recommend especially for Friday night date night!
