On a recent trip overseas, Scott was delighted to find French brasserie food was so simple and delicious. In this class, Scott shares simple shortcut cooking techniques to make your French cooking special. Recipes include: perfectly poached eggs on garlic-oil brushed toast with tart salad greens, vinaigrette dressing and char-grilled fresh asparagus; classic steak frites, seasoned seared beef eye fillet with a side of crunchy hand-cut fries, béarnaise sauce without egg yolks or butter and watercress salad; oven roasted en papilotte (wrapped in a parcel) whole trout with caper butter sauce and toasted almonds; and finally, fragrant smashed raspberry and vanilla crème brulee with a twist!
