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.
RSVP'd Yes: 9 (7 members and 2 guests)

Re: Cooking Course in Colmar (leaving from Basel)

Begga & Mimster - if you would want to join I can re-schedule this event for the weekend after (provided it is available).

It is necessary to form minimal group of people at least (which is 5), so that the course is in English. Further, it's much more enjoyable if we go there together.

Mimster - Zurich is 53mins away by train which is not too bad; and trains are going every 20mins; and after that you join us and we drive to Colmar.

Let me know your date preference.

Cheers!

Re: Cooking Course in Colmar (leaving from Basel)

Hi,

I haven't booked the course yet; as there aren't enough people.

Let me know preferred date, and I will reschedule. I am sure that the whole experience is great! Cooking courses are always fun; especially if Michelin-star chef is leading!

Suggestions:
February 26th - 27th
March 5th-6th


Cheers!

Re: Cooking Course in Colmar (leaving from Basel)

One thing just sprung to mind ... it's 140 including a double room. As I'm coming on my own does that mean I get a double room to myself, need to share (I don't mind) or have to pay a single supplement?
