Two weeks ago I had the chance to take part into the new cooking classes organised by the Hôtel “Le Châtelain”
You may know how much I love cooking, and can not even imagine how excited I was to take part in a cooking class, especially in a Hotel, such as the prestigious “Le Châtelain”.
We started the class by going picking our fresh produce at the reknown fresh market of le châtelain (it was a wednesday night obviously).
The happy bunch!
Now back to the kitchen! We made a foie gras barbe a papa as a starter, and then a red snapper with scallops and veggies, to finally finish with a Charlotte aux fruits rouges.
Since we were a very big group, it was a bit difficult to make everybody participate in every step. We each concentrated a lot on our plate presentation. I have to say it almost felt like masterchef, since I never really really paid attention to presentation before.
Here a few snapshots of the different steps
Making/eating our starters
I did help with the butternut squash purée. To be honest, super fun, and super impressive to work in a professional kitchen. But also SUPER hot, and not super easy
And now, the final result of my dish and my desert
Super happy with both of my plates!
Now for the more technical informations:
