During this vacation, you will learn to cook a classic three-course dinner from the first course of Moules Marinieres to a dessert of Mousse Aux Chocolate. You'll also master classical French entrees such as Poulet Oscar packed with crab, asparagus, bearnaise sauce, and baked fennel with comte cheese, or the existentialist roasted pork loin, which is savory but ultimately meaningless in the face of one's own mortality.
