To celebrate the release of Julie & Julia, the new flick about beloved American chef Julia Child and Julie Powell, the tenacious food blogger who conquered all the recipes in Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, the Kitchen Table Cooking School (5375 Landmark Place in Greenwood Village) is hosting a classic French cooking class from 6:30 to 9 p.m. tonight.
The $75 demonstration, in which the cooking instructors explore some of Child's favorite recipes, is followed by a multi-course dinner paired with wines (for an additional $25). The menu includes canapes aux epinards, duck a'la orange, haricot verts, gratin dauphinois, and for dessert, a la tarte tatin.
Added bonus: If you bring in your movie ticket stub from Julie & Julia, you'll get 15 percent off the class cost. For more info and to sign up, call 303-220-9769.
