Downtown Glen Ellyn is home to one of the freshest and most innovative stores for cooking and food lovers locally, regionally and even globally. Open since September 2011 at 490 North Main Street, in a beautiful historic landmark building, is Marcel’s – a fresh kind of culinary experience.
Jill Foucré, a longtime resident of Glen Ellyn, has embarked on her lifelong dream to combine her family heritage, her love of cooking and entertaining, and her highly successful business skills into a retail and cooking school destination.
Named after Jill’s grandfather, a French chef and restaurateur, Marcel’s is a gathering place to cook, create and celebrate. A welcoming state-of-the-art kitchen for cooks of all ages and skill levels, is a place to learn, watch, meet new people and old friends – a place to pull up a chair, gather around the table and discover fabulous food adventures.
Stocked with fine cookware and hardworking professional tools, exquisite table wares, specialty foods, and one-of-a find items, Marcel’s is a contemporary purveyor of food, fun and learning for the community and the Midwest.
Excellent class. Chef was very knowledgeable about Instant Cookers as well as other pressure cookers. She offered details that help understand the operation of each style of cooker and to differentiate them from one another. Everyone was encouraged to participate in the cooking experience and all the recipes were clear and easy to understand. The class was not only very informative, but also a lot of fun, with good interaction between the chef and those taking the class. There was a lot of information for those who are new to Instant Cookers as well as for those who have been using them for some time. I would highly recommend the class to anyone who is interested in cooking with pressure cookers.
The instructor (Kelly) was very friendly, informative and extremely knowledgeable about pressure cookers, both table-top and stove-top. She took the time to answer questions, go into further detail when needed, and to encourage hands-on participation. During the course of the class we prepared and/or taste tested 10 different pressure cooked foods - yogurt, chicken, stock, orange marmalade, rice, humus, polenta, risotto, vegetable sauce, and dolce le leche. We went to the class hoping to find out if pressure cooking was right for us and which would would serve us better, table-top or stove-top. We not only got our answer, but came away with a brand new 10 qt. pressure cooker! :)
I liked the session. I wish it was a little longer or multiple sessions. I would like to have learned about different knives for different operations.
Wonderful class and a lot of fun. Wished it had been a little smaller, but overall a fun afternoon!
We would prefer it if there were less people so we were able to do more cooking.
I now have confidence that I am able to can foods on my own, thanks to Chef Kelly's expertise.
