Get Laura Calder’s Apres-Ski Menu

Laura Calder

Though summer’s winding down, it’s still hot enough in much of the country to break out in a sweat just stepping out to retrieve the mail. If all the hot weather has you dreaming of a winter wonderland and hitting the ski slopes, Cooking Channel and Laura Calder are here to make at least part of the fantasy (the food part) a reality with a new special.

Tune in to Laura Calder Explores: The French Alps tonight at 8pm ET on Cooking Channel.

The James Beard award-winning chef is leaving her kitchen behind and heading to the French Alps for the very first time. She’s on a mission to taste the very best food the region has to offer, earn her après-ski and learn everything she can from the chefs and farmers of the region along the way. From the heights of the snow-capped mountains to the lakes and farms in the foot hills, Laura exposes the great people and delicious foods that can only be found in the Alps.

Get the recipes from her trip in our gallery and bring some of the beautiful hearty and rustic French cooking home with you.
