We are so excited to have our favorite French Chef, Charlotte, coming to our Art of Craft event in January! Charlotte has been a professional chef for the past twenty years and studied sauces in Paris for four years. Charlotte is our personal chef at the chateau, and many people return year after year just for her food! Charlotte is warm, funny, adventurous, and able to present French cooking in the easiest terms - I have learned to make countless dishes, sauces and deserts from Charlotte over the years - classic recipes using food on hand - nothing fancy!
At the Art of Craft event in Santa Paula this year, Charlotte will be teaching an all day cooking course including lunch and jarred items to take away and enjoy throughout the winter months. Charlotte will be using regional food for all of her demonstrations and recipes, including: lemons, oranges, and avocados grown in Santa Paula, herbs grown in Ojai, honey made in Fillmore and vegetables from around the county.
We hope you can join us for this special weekend in Santa Paula - and a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from Chef Charlotte in California!
