The Envelope Please: Cooking En Papillote

Chef Margaret Jacobs

The results are in: Cooking en papillote proves that simple can be sophisticated, healthy can be heavenly, and low in fat can be high in flavor. In this cooking demonstration, Chef Margaret Jacobs will share the method and philosophy of cooking in an envelope of parchment paper. Sealed in paper and cooked in its own juices, food is more flavorful than through ordinary steaming. This haute cuisine is ideal for clean and healthy eating, and within the reach of everyone. All are welcome. No prior cooking experience required. Recipes and samples included.

FEE: $30
