The cultural diversity in NYC is surely one of the main characteristics that attracted (and still attracts) our Founder Fernanda Paronetto to this gorgeous, exciting city!
When we talk about food and goodies, then the conversation may last hours, since you can find anything and everything you’re craving for in a relatively small radius!
We recently met, at an event we went last week, Chef Simon Herfray from a company called French’Encas! We actually tried one of each of his pastries and they were to-die-for! Obviously they finished super quick!
They organize customized private or corporate events, whether at his kitchen in Manhattan or at your home (and even office). Chef Simon works closely with you to create a unique, seasonal, customized menu!
They also offer a French Pastry Haute Couture Tasting for 10 to 12 guests. Guests enjoy 3 to 4 luxury pastries paired with wines, while socializing for a “Pastry Happy Hour”. Chef Simon organizes this event with the wine connoisseur, Clarissa Sarreal. This is also offered in his Kitchen or at your home!
Are you an aspiring chef and is interested in learning!? His French Pastry Hands-On Classes is offered for non-professionals, so don’t worry! For one evening (approximately 2 hours), Chef Simon teaches pastry enthusiasts how to prepare traditional French pastries, such as éclairs, mille-feuilles, and of course, the famous macarons. Yummmm! Additionally, private classes are offered for groups looking to celebrate special events, such as Bachelorette Parties, Birthday Parties, Corporate Team Events, etc.
Last, but not least! Are you in the mood of surprising your team at work with some delicious treats? You can request a Private French Pastry Chef & Consultant that will treat your staff (or customers) to some sweet treats such as authentic French Macarons, Chocolate Bonbons or the French take on Afternoon Tea. Chef Simon will help you prepare a customized menu for your special occasion.
Classes are hosted at: 451 B, East 116 Street (116 St. & 1st Avenue)
We’re sure you’re going to enjoy it all, plus…there is nothing nicer than French speaking English, right? The accent is a song for the ears!
