“I just wanted you to know how happy I am that I signed up for The French Culinary Experience (FCE). I never cooked and ate out 90% of the time, mostly at salad bars. Of course, at the time I didn’t have time to cook.

I was working as Nurse Practitioner seeing 125 patients a week. Who can cook working like I did. Since I retired, I have enjoyed cooking my dinner.

I love soups and have made the butternut squash and french onion soup numerous times since your demonstration. I find myself smiling as I dice an onion. When I told my friends I am taking a cooking class they said I wouldn’t dare eat your cooking!

Now they have asked me to make them marmalade, butternut squash soup, ricotta lemon cake, ricotta, and bread. One friend told me, you are ruining your reputation when you post the facebook pictures of the food you cook and bake. Remember she said, you can’t cook! However, I always wanted to bake and now I can.

Thank you.”

“I first came into contact with you through your blog. I think I came across a link to one of your recipes on Pinterest, and immediately fell in love with Mon Petit Four. The blog led me to your Instagram account and Facebook groups, which I happily joined. I truly enjoy all of the content you put out, and I particularly enjoyed your recipe videos.

While I am a full time attorney, wife, and mother, I love cooking and baking. Making dinner or baking something actually relaxes me after a day in the office or at the courthouse. Your recipes always have tips and tricks to give me the best results.

Just last night I watched the molten chocolate cake video, and learned your egg whisking trick! That is what I love about the membership– it’s not just recipes, it’s also the videos and the little tips that make a big difference. Thanks to the membership I’m finally going to try baking bread for the first time – I’ve always been far too intimidated, but your step-by-step guides make me believe that I can do it!

There are plenty of members that make every recipe right immediately after posting to fantastic results, but it’s a membership, not a competition! We all have phases in life, and sometimes I have a lot of time to cook and bake, and sometimes I don’t. The recipes and videos are always available, they aren’t assignments, and no one is going to kick me out of the membership if I bake bread in February instead of January. It’s about the knowledge and I believe being in the kitchen should be joyful.

The most surprising part of the membership for me has been the sense of community. I love seeing pictures of what other members make, and because it’s so small it’s a safe, happy corner of the internet! Seeing what other members do with the recipes is part of the fun!

I was initially hesitant to join the membership because I don’t have a lot of time to tackle big baking projects these days, but the membership is so much more than that. It’s cooking, it’s baking, it’s tips and tricks, and it’s community. It is 100% worth the money and I’m so grateful to you for creating it!”

Bonjour! I’m Beeta

As a Francophile, I find the whole French motto of good food, good wine, and good company to be a sort of life philosophy that I adamantly adhere to. Roast chicken seasoned with garlic, olive oil, and herbs de provence…stone fruit caramelized in a cast iron skillet and flipped over a bed of pastry…or slow-fermented dough kneaded into a crusty, airy boule….these are just a few of my favorite things about French cuisine and pastry.

After creating my popular French food blog MonPetitFour.com and seeing just how many other Francophiles out there share my love of French cuisine and pastry, I was inspired to delve deeper into the world of French cooking and baking through an online membership.

The French Culinary Experience is a continuous opportunity to learn, share, and invoke the spirit of French gastronomy right here at home in your own kitchen. At the heart of this community lies a love for France and great food. It’s my goal to not only share my insights into French cuisine and pastry, but provide you the know-how and techniques to make any meal fantastic, including those on-the-fly, what’s-in-the-fridge meals!

“The French Culinary Experience has been a life changing experience. I am a retiree, who had two objectives: 1. Add some variety to the meals I prepared for my, still working, wife; and 2. Provide additional subjects for my food photography hobby.

The French Culinary Experience helped me meet both objectives.
Prior to enrolling in the course, I was very comfortable with several European and Asian cuisines, but had steadfastly avoided French cuisine. I thought it too delicate, too difficult, too demanding, etc. This course completely eliminated all of my misconceptions and apprehensions.

The monthly recipes and bonus materials are presented in an easy to understand, engaging manner by an instructor who takes a very sincere interest in her students and our success. We have 24/7 access to lesson videos and recipes that we can prepare in our own kitchens, on our schedule, at our own pace.

For me personally, this course has been an enabler. A few short months ago, my experience with French cooking did not extend much beyond French Toast. I can now, with the utmost confidence, prepare several complete French meals, including appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, and desserts.

Thanks, to the French Culinary Experience, I can provide my wife, with restaurant quality French food, in the comfort of her own home. And as for my food photography hobby, in my humble opinion, it has reached new heights.

I highly recommend the French Culinary Experience, it will change your life. Un grand merci à vous Beeta, you have changed our lives.”
