The evening will be led by the very talented Anne-Sophie Dubois. Everyone in Anne Sophie's family enjoys cooking and, for them food is a serious business. Along with her husband, she was brought up in wine producing regions of France and learned the art of matching wine and food as part of preparing the perfect meal.

Anne-Sophie brought her gastronomic heritage to Australia. When she saw we were missing the pleasures of good traditional French Cooking she wrote and published her bilingual cookbook, 'My Traditional French Cooking'.

Because French cooking is usually seen as sophisticated and complicated it can seem intimidating when you first set out to master the art. However, homemade French food is very different from that served in French restaurants. Join in this amazing gastronomic journey with Anne Sophie and learn to cook real home-style French meals. Anne Sophie will make it easy for you to return home and cook up a storm of genuine and tasty French feasts from France's beautiful Loire Valley.

Although perhaps better known for its scenic beauty the Loire Valley is a region rich in history and culture with its own delicious cuisine. The region is recognised as The Garden of France because of the wonderful produce grown in its mild climate and extremely fertile soil.

Fruits and vegetables thrive in the region and fresh water fish abound in the numerous rivers and lakes. Winemaking dates back to the 1st century and its cheeses are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes. Because of the endowments provided by nature it is not surprising the Loire Valley was a favoured refuge for the French kings and their courts during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Not only will you stun your family and friends with delicious French cuisine but Anne Sophie will also impart several fascinating stories behind some of the recipes. Each region in France has its own traditional dishes and the Loire Valley is one of the better ones.

Join in on this very interesting night with other like minds who love a good meal (and isn't that all of us?). The evening's discussions are in English.
