Hi,

While planning to organize cooking course for OH; I found this interesting idea:

Cooking course + one night in Colmar. Learn to prepare few dishes from a Michelin-star chef! After which you can entertain your guests with the finest Alsatian dishes.

Cooking courses are normally good fun.

There is 4 places in my car from Basel to Colmar and back. Free of charge. Please let me know if you wish to come with me by car.

I have contacted hotel to provide me more details. Will post it as soon as I get it. The group should be around 6 people; and they can provide course in English.


Price: 139 EUR/per person (from web-site).


Meanwhile, this is from their web-pages:
The package includes:
- 1 night in a 3-star hotel in a double room with breakfast
- a cook class with the Chef of the renowned restaurant "Le Rendez-vous de Chasse", 1-star Michelin Guide. You will learn how to prepare regional dishes and get familiar with some regional produce. Preparation of two dishes. Afterwards, you will get comments of the chef with a fine glass of Alsace wine.
- a gastronomic dinner in the restaurant of your hotel"Le Rendez-vous de Chasse" (4 courses), without drinks
- the access to the Wellbeing Area of your hotel with sauna, hammam and fitness
Not included in the price:
Transport – beverages during meals – city tax - personal expenditures – cancellation insurance - other services not mentioned.

Sounds great! Count us in!

Given the newly acquired skills this group can crack open a lobster, de-vein goose liver, and probably grill the sausages afterward on the grill!

Let's just say it was special.
But we had a great time though, and got to know some cool new people.
