Cooking Demonstrations & Wine Dinners

Chef Jacques Cooking DemoJoin Chef Jacques Haeringer at the award-winning L’Auberge Chez François for one of our lively and entertaining cooking demonstrations combined with a delightful meal.  At each event, Jacques will share his passion for classic and contemporary French cuisine by teaching expert cooking techniques and tricks of the trade, and sharing these recipes for the home chef, while guests sip specially chosen wine. 

After the demo, our guests will then enjoy their “just demonstrated” five-course luncheon in our garden room, paired with wines selected by our sommelier.  Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase these wines at a special “trade” price. Bon Appetit, merci beaucoup et à bientôt.

As always, we will be able to accommodate dietary concerns, given advanced notice.  Please email me at with any special requests. 

Prices include the demonstration, luncheon/dinner with fine wines, written recipes for the home chef, and all taxes and gratuities.

Seafood Lovers' Cooking Demonstration and Luncheon


Seafood Lovers' Cooking Demonstration and Luncheon
Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 11:00am

The pleasures of the table, fine food and wine are an essential part of a passionate life. Please join us on Saturday, February 18 at 11:00am for Chef Jacques’ Seafood Lovers’ Valentine Cooking Demo & Luncheon. Raymond Oliver, author of Gastronomy of France said, “The reason that bouillabaisse has a world reputation is because it is an aphrodisiac”. My Papa’s Classic Bouillabaisse features shellfish and julienned vegetables. Our main course features Le Saumon Souffle’ de l’Auberge, a signature dish from three star Michelin L’Auberge de L’Ill, where Chef Jacques had the opportunity to train and work with Master Chef Paul Haerberlin. Oh yes, Chocolate and Passion Fruit Mousse Cake, our “piece de la résistance” for dessert lovers. Romantic celebrations are a tradition at L’Auberge Chez François, and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
