We don't want to repeat what's already been said about how your day unfolds but do want to share our thoughts on what a gracious host Michel was, start to finish, and how we enjoyed the entire event. From the time we were picked up (on time!), welcomed with tea/coffee and introduction to our day and then led through the day in the very well organized kitchen and cooking stations, to our shared late lunch with wine and dessert served by our host, we enjoyed every part of the event. Great to spend time with someone who truly enjoys what he does and shares his enthusiasm with his guests.
Michel's assistant, Nizha, was a great tutor and patient with the many questions she had to field.
As it happened, we booked the cooking school and spa experience afterward as a package deal through Faim d'Epices. The spa was excellent as well. Cooking school from 10 to 4 or so, then they took us to the spa afterward for a hammam and massage from 5 to about 8. Best day of our whole trip!
