Artepicure is a cooking school in Somerville, MA run by Mark DesLauriers. The classes are small, usually limited to 8 people and it’s BYOB if you please. My first experience at Artepicure was the French couples cooking class. I fell in love with the space immediately, the class was fun, and I left full and happy. The evening classes usually end pretty late (I don’t think I left the French cooking class until 11pm) so I decided to try the brunch class next in order to leave at a reasonable hour.
Course 1: Tomato and goat cheese tart
Course 2: Buttermilk biscuits with chipotle sausage gravy and Spanish frittata
Course 3: Belgian chocolate brownies with caramel sauce
Another awesome class! The biscuits we made were the best I’ve ever had and the secret is a flour with lower gluten content (White Lily makes one). Each time I learn new tips and tricks from Mark and cooking with strangers is always entertaining. Be prepared to cook, mingle, and most importantly EAT! You won’t be disappointed!
