French Date Night

April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm



We call this one of our best classes for sure.  Sells out every time.  Adults only, please.  Tickets sold in pairs.  Please buy JUST ONE TICKET PER COUPLE!!  WE WILL NOT REFUND YOUR MONEY IF YOU OVER-PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THIS CLASS.

They deglaze with booze and cook with butter and heavy cream guiltlessly.  We tend to idolize all things French. Paris, in particular, has long been seen as one of the most amazing and iconic cities in the world.  Fashion, food, movies… it just seems more fancy and elegant when it hails from The City Of Lights. Every year, France attracts about 83 million tourists, making it the top vacation spot in the world for tours, sightseeing, and shopping. The cuisine is pretty spectacular, too! In this class, we’ll celebrate classic French food with decadent recipes such as  au Filet Au Poivre, Mushroom Chicken in Cream Sauce, Dijon Roasted Veggies, Raspberry Clafoutis, Fromage Fort with Baguette, Duchess Potatoes, Dessert Crepes, and Cream Puffs and even a French Martini.  You will feel fancy by association just by making and eating this food! We may not be able to fly everyone to Paris for the evening, but this class will be the next best thing!  A glass of wine will be served with dinner.

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are allowing optional masking for all students and it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask to class due to the recent state mandate enforced 2/28/22.  We will be providing hand sanitizer at the door upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home and find someone to replace your ticket.  Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring  a beverage to drink if you wish. We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink. Byob if you wish.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 5 days in advance of the class date to receive the opportunity to raincheck your tickets to another class (there is a fee to do so). We do not offer refunds for any reason, including Covid related issues. There is a $25 fee (per ticket) to raincheck your tickets to another future class, which is due at the time that you move your tickets. You can raincheck your tickets by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to raincheck at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund or rain check opportunity for any reason (even Covid / exposure related – we simply cannot accommodate for this).  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else (for no fee) if you are not able to come- this is the best option if you have to cancel.

If you have a cardboard gift card with a 3-digit number and want to redeem it for this class, you must call or email to reserve your class spot prior to the class selling out.  If you reserve your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card. To cash in your cardboard gift card, contact us at thecookeryinc@gmail.com

If your gift card has a 16-digit code, you can cash it in online when you purchase your ticket.  Codes are case sensitive and require the dash marks to be entered to process the code.
