Go on a Culinary Egg-Venture for the whole family to explore some of the endless dinner centerpiece possibilities of one of the world’s most versatile, nutritious and economical ingredients, eggs. The four-part series of virtual hour-long interactive family-oriented cooking classes will be presented by acclaimed caterer Great Performances (GP) and led by chef Georgette Farkas, GP's culinary ambassador. She will share favorite egg dishes influenced by childhood summers in the south of France, years studying at Switzerland’s Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne and her experience in the kitchens of Roger Vergé’s Moulin de Mougins in France and Alain Ducasse’s Louis XV in Monte Carlo, as well as that of Daniel Boulud while he was executive chef at New York City’s Hotel Plaza Athenée. Mediterranean flavors permeate the four dishes she will walk Culinary Egg-Venture-ers through, ranging range from comforting home-style to the more sophisticated restaurant ready. For each stand-alone class, chef Georgette will discuss the subject dish’s origins and the inspiration of her approach to it, while demonstrating various cooking techniques, dispensing tips for ingredient improvisation and egg-centently answering questions from participants of all ages. Prior to every class participants will receive a prep packet containing a shopping list, recipe, suggested pre-class work and any additional information that will help maximize their edu-taining experience.
