Live cooking class with Lionel Rigolet**

Thursday 16th July
live on instagram

You may have already spotted the info: the next live cooking class will be given by two Michelin-star chef Lionel Rigolet, from Comme Chez Soi**!

A live cooking class like no other, which will be followed on Monday July 20th by another Michelin-star chef : Viki Geunes from the restaurant Zilte**.

Two easy and unusual recipes to prepare at home, for the upcoming Belgian National Day. Together with Lionel, we will be cooking a recipe centred around Gruyère d’Alpage AOP. A cheese with a fine and delicate aroma that owes its elegant and complex taste to the top-quality raw milk from the cows of the Gruyères region. During the long maturing process, the wheels are turned several times and rubbed regularly with salt and water. Moisture allows the formation of a fat layer on the rind which accelerates the maturing process. This is what gives Gruyère PDO its unique flavor.

These two live classes will mark the end of the Instagram live cooking classes with chefs. Although you should never say never, of course. 😉

If you’ve spent all the lockdown thinking that you should definitely take part in the next class, now is pretty much the time.

We’ll meet you on Thursday July 16th at 7pm on Instagram, with all of your ingredients ready in your kitchen, and your oven preheated to 80°C!

Pasta salad, candied tomatoes, arugula, basil, Gruyère d’Alpage AOP, passion fruit and lemon dressing.
