WHAT: On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, from 3-5 p.m. Fashion Island’s newest culinary resident, FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach, and Executive Chef Pascal Lorange invite Orange County’s curious cooks to an intimate and engaging hands-on cooking class ($85*) personally led by the chef himself. Guests will explore the flavors of the French Riviera as Chef Lorange demonstrates his tips and tricks for preparing three dishes that are signature to FIG & OLIVE including:

· Zucchini Carpaccio with lemon, pine nut, parmesan, and Picholine Olive Oil

· Chilean Sea Bass marinated with lemon thyme, carrot, asparagus, celery root puree, heirloom potato, charmoula mascarpone, and harissa olive oil emulsion

· Apple Tart with caramelized apples and vanilla ice cream

Participants will hone their culinary skills under the supervision of a professional chef as they follow along step-by-step preparing each dish. The class will learn about cooking with olive oil as well as culinary techniques such as baking “en papillote”. Guests will toast to the afternoon with a Piscine Cocktail, composed of sparkling wine and organic strawberries, and enjoy the dishes of their labor.
