2 April 2023 | Cooking with the Impressionists: Claude Monet in Giverny
Date: 2 April 2023
Time: 3:00pm to 6:00pm
Location: Savour headquarters aka Wendy's home and garden, 94 Oban St., Wadestown, Wellington
Space in this workshop is limited to 7.
Today we’ll gather at art historian and chef Dr. Wendy Joyce's home to learn more about Monet's life, art and food in Giverny. Of course we'll also talk about his garden where he grew all of the vegetables for the household.
We'll begin with an hour visual presentation. Then you’ll cook two very French dishes from Monet's personal recipe collection: Monet's favourite creamy eggs with mushrooms and an apple galette inspired by Monet's painting by the same title (pictured). We'll also go out to the garden and forage for some organic greens for our salad, and Wendy will teach you a simple, delicious recipe for French salad dressing.
After the cooking, sit down and enjoy dinner together with some fresh sourdough.
