teisseire Our hands down choice for adding to ice cubes and seltzer water are Teisseire syrups. They have  an incredible depth of flavor, and  not just sugar. Teisseire syrups have  some of the highest percentages of natural fruit juices and flavorings on the market.  There are no artificial anythings in their syrups.

Enjoy these also with  sparkling wines or use as toppings for sorbets, ice creams or even pancakes and waffles.  The Cuisinettes heeded customer Terri Baloran's advice for the Tropical Syrup (it's Passion Fruit) by adding vodka, sparkling water over ice for an early evening cocktail.  Curiously refreshing.

All flavors of Teisseire will discounted 20% today.  We'll have samples of their Black Currant and Elderflower for you taste. 

We have a case discount on Teisseire available as a special order.  Contact us for pricing. 

 If you are unable to stop by, give us a call at 1 800 521 1176 and we will take your order for pick up later or we will ship your selection.  We cannot offer this discount on our website.

FrannyThere was an article in The New York Times  a few years ago about exploring the food scene in Brooklyn, NY, and our favorite "discovery" was Franny's.  We have made this delicious tuna mousse (it is unforgivably easy) and friends have devoured it. Serve it on crostini (one crostino, but two or more crostini) as a dip for vegetables, or as a change to the ubiquitous tuna salad sandwich.  ortiztuna

We'll have the incomparable Ortiz tuna at a 20% discount, along with their anchovy fillets (which people order by the case!) and the incomparable Moulins Mahjoub salted capers from Tunisia  and the recipe will both be in the upcoming email we send out on Friday and we will have a copies in the shop this Saturday.  

We think so highly of the cookbook from Franny's that we'll have copies of it for you to look through and you can purchase it at 20% discount too. there are a couple more recipes we want to treat you to in future Saturday tastings.   

As always, if you're not in the neighborhood, give us a call on Friday or Saturday to place an order for any of these at the same discount for shipment or  pick-up in the shop.  We do offer bulk discounts on the tuna (12 to case) anchovies (15 to a case) and capers (6 to a case) These are all special orders, so ask for current pricing and delivery time frame.  Bulk discounts cannot be combined with our Saturday tasting discounts.

Joe Raffa will be teaching our knife skills class on Sunday, June 4, 2017.  Joe is a rock star in Jose Andres’s ThinkFoodGroup and currently runs all the kitchens in this growing restaurant empire. He is always kind enough to share some of his very rare spare time with us at La Cuisine to teach these wonderful classes..

Not only will you learn basic knife skills and care, but you will also have the opportunity to work with our selection of first-rate knives. Joe will share his extensive knowledge of all types of knives and manufacturers that will help you in making future knife purchases. You will also learn how to steel your knives properly, one of the best ways to preserve the cutting edge of your knife. 

Store will open at 9:30am so that you can have a chance to shop and talk with Joe.  


Class size will be limited to six, so everyone gets a chance to work directly with the chef and with different knives.  You don’t need to bring your own knives to use during the class as we will have a selection for you to try. Class starts at 10AM and usually finishes before 1PM.

 

The cost for this class is $95.00, and registrants will receive a coupon for six free knife sharpenings as well as a 20% discount on any purchase or order made in the store within sixty days from the class date.
