Cooking Class

Hey guys!

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
