This class was a organized for a group of 10 women on a weekend getaway to Hudson. Working with Chef Michael Freeman, we designed a breakfast menu for a hands-on class. Chef Freeman started by preparing a fruit smoothy to energize everyone for knife work—peeling and chopping fruit for their crepes. The prep continued with learning the distinct seasoning for breakfast sausages, the proper way to poach an egg, and how to make a hollandaise sauce from scratch. Everyone took a spin around the crepe pan before sitting down to a sweet and savory breakfast.
