I took a multi-class pastry course taught by Michel Richard in 1978, when he was proprietor of a pastry shop in Beverly Hills. I was a mere toddler at the time, of course, and his voice hadn't changed yet--NOT! :lol: (The class was held at Ma Cuisine, a small cooking classroom affiliated with Ma Maison, one of the earliest California-French restaurants, owned by Patrick Terraill, a member of the Tour d'Argent Terraill family. I took another course there, taught by the young chef at Ma Maison--Wolfgang Puck.)

All of you are well aware that Michel Richard has brilliant technique, but he is also a natural teacher, charming and informative and generous of spirit. It would be fun to go, if I had the dinero, but I would recommend it to those who do.

I've been to a slew of these (my Christmas present from Mrs. B last year) and I can assure you that Michel is a blast, the lessons -- more a demonstration than a hands-on thing -- are informative and the lunch that follows (highlight: the wine lesson by crack sommelier Mark Slater), featuing the menu you just watched being prepared, is delicious.

If you're nice to Mark, you can almost make back the cost of the lesson in the wine. :lol: They usually open the champagne about 11 o'clock and Michel usually has a dram or two himself.

Added bonus: sometimes you can pick up a swell baseball cap if you're qick.

I had a great experience taking Michel Richard’s cooking classes a while back. I recall it to be so much fun and amazing! Although I thought it would be more hands on, Michel and the entire staff did wonders and pampered you while demonstrating in the kitchen classroom style. After the demonstration, we moved to the dining room to enjoy a fantastic wine paired meal in the expert midst of Mark, Mel and Jacques. At the end, we were given a portfolio of recipes full of creative, innovative cooking methods and techniques, a gift bag with information on interesting international culinary affiliations as well as Citronelle souvenirs autographed by none other than Michel Richard—fabulous and well worth it! I would love to do it all over again! :)
