By the latter half of the 19th century, bistros were centers of social life in Paris, where they catered to great---and near-great---painters and writers.

The simple, down-to-earth food served at such bistros quickly became as celebrated as the eateries' most famous patrons.

You will make traditional dishes of that bygone era, such as Soupe à l'Oignon (onion soup); Coquilles St-Jacques Parisienne (scallops in cream sauce); Choucroute Garnie; Noisettes de Porc aux Pruneaux (braised pork with plums); Pommes Dauphine (baked scalloped potatoes); Tartes aux Framboises (fresh raspberry tarts); and Mousse au Chocolat (chocolate mousse).

Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund. However, a $20 transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is canceled by the registrant/student. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the transaction fee will be deducted (see above). Rescheduling a class still entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given.
