Event Overview

Learn how to make a romantic French picnic feast! In this hands-on class, instructor Sarah Jane Mallin will teach you how to create a savory tart, easy paté, and cherry clafoutis. These easy French dishes can become part of your cooking repertoire by adapting them with seasonal ingredients and your own creativity. Bring a bottle of wine and your best Julia Child impersonation for even more fun. We’ll sit down to enjoy the meal we’ve created at the end of class, in the company of new friends. This class is BYOB.

Sarah Jane Mallin is an artisanal pie maker and versatile chef. She fell in love with growing and cooking food as a child while working on her grandparents’ 1,000-acre farm in Ohio. Even though she has attended classes at Le Cordon Bleu, The French Pastry School, and The Chopping Block, Sarah learned the most valuable lessons about cooking from her mother and grandmothers. She founded her pie making and wellness company, Pyrite Sun, to enrich connections between how we breathe, eat, and grow. Sarah’s cooking classes invite you integrate how you prepare, eat, and experience the food you make. Rather than merely following a recipe, you will learn simple ways to be creative, confident, and engaged in the process of nourishing yourself.
