"I just finished the first course provided by the French Cooking Academy and I am truly sad that the course is over. The lessons are professionally filmed and edited, the course materials are clear and very beneficial, and Stephane's enthusiasm is contagious. In addition to the class, the Facebook class page is full of people who like to help and Stephane is very responsive to any questions posted there. I'm looking forward to new courses as they become available. If you have the slightest interest in French Cooking, don't miss this opportunity!
