A German Appy Hour
Nothing hits the spot after a long day better than German food and beer. There is something that screams “comfort” from most German dishes, and they all pair perfectly with a cold pint. In this 90 - 120 minute workshop, we will teach you and your team how to create a traditional Flammkuchen (a German flatbread) and Beer Brat Bites, juicy sausage bites, grilled to perfection and tossed in a beer glaze. Whether you are new in the kitchen or you rank yourself as a masterchef, this interactive and fun virtual activity will leave you with something tasty to show off to family and friends (if you manage to resist eating all it all yourself!)
All you need to do is pick up the ingredients, some beer and follow the pre-event steps below.

Meet your Chef
Edette Gagné grew up in the kitchen - ﬁrst watching all the action from atop the fridge, then learning the basics from her mother and great-aunt, then exploring and learning everything she could about gastronomy and creating delicious food.
As a self-trained chef, every meal out, every cookbook, every cooking show is a chance to learn more about food, ﬂavours, plating and beauty. Her private gourmet dinners sell at auction for high prices - and frequently to people who have enjoyed the experience in the past. Having grown up with wines, her recent explorations have taken her into the ﬁelds of beer and mixology. There is no endpoint in sight for this chef’s passion for food.
Edette loves beauty in all things - especially food. Her goal is to create food that invites all the senses to the table: the appearance, the fragrant scents, the mouth feel… everything matters.
