In response to COVID-19, Franklin Park Conservatory will be closed to the public for three weeks starting Friday, March 13. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and this decision was made in alignment with official health and government recommendations. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

Classic French Date Night

This is a hands-on cooking and tasting class led by Kristi Cilles. If you can’t get to Paris, come to the Conservatory to make a delicious French bistro-style dinner. You’ll learn how to pan-fry a tender strip steak, make a delicious red wine pan sauce, steam tender green beans that are seasoned with herbs de Provence and topped with lightly toasted almonds. Chef Kristi will also introduce you to the Parisian method of creating foolproof “frites” with a simple  French aioli. To finish, we’ll demystify the decadent chocolate mousse dessert.

Please register by Wednesday, May 20. Be sure to indicate any allergies or aversions when registering.
