This delicious dish is a classic chicken ‘sauté’ with a Basque twist. The chicken pieces are browned before simmering with Basque Piment d’Espelette, onions, red pepprs, and mushrooms.

Gateau Basque’ is really more of a tart. Or is it? It is always a rich, shortbread-like pastry in two layers. Inside it sometimes has a cherry jam filling, but Chef Randall will show us how to make it with pastry cream.

Techniques:  cutting a whole chicken into eight pieces; cooking a French sauté; making rich butter pastry; making pastry cream.

About the Instructor: Chef Randall Price will share with us his passion for French cuisine, drawing on his 25 years of experience cooking France for heads of state and working as Chef-Instructor at the professional Paris cooking, Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne. His entertaining style, easy-to-follow demonstrations and focus on classic techniques will inspire you to reproduce dishes at home.
