A feast of crêpes for Mardi-Gras
with Christine Piccin and Julia Fornage, on Thursday February 23 at 7pm at Vista del Lago Clubhouse, 3150 Lakeview Drive, Santa Rosa
$5 to be paid at the door
The evening will begin with a short talk by Julia Fornage on the celebration of Mardi-Gras, which in France traditionally involves making crêpes. They are fun to make, once you have learned how and flipped a few yourself. If you wish, you can try your hand at making your own crêpe, and then everyone will taste everything we make, bien sûr! Light refreshments will accompany the crêpes. This relaxed event will be presented in French and in English, making it appropriate also for guests who do not speak French. So please bring a friend!
Julia Fornage team-teaches a French conversation/cuisine class in the SRJC Community Education program. Her fascination with the French language and culture began at SRJC and led to a Master’s degree in French from UCSB. She is also a former pastry chef with restaurant experience in San Francisco and the Napa Valley.
Award-winning chef Christine Piccin, who writes a recipe every month in the AFSR newsletter, is currently training student chefs in the Culinary Arts program at SRJC. She also team-teaches with Steve Rabinowitsh a travel, food and wine class entitled “Why We Love Paris” in the SRJC Community Education program.
