Bon Appetit!


The Hamanassett kitchen may not exactly overlook the Eiffel Tower or the Palace of Versailles but the smell of baguettes, sausage and pears filled the bed and breakfast during our recent French Country Cooking Class.

Ten guests put on their aprons, pre-heated the ovens and sharpened their knifes to learn the art of French cuisine.

The all-day class had the guests chefing up lunch and dinner which they of course enjoyed eating as well.

Lunch consisted of six course with Saucisses Merguez or Merguez Sausages links being the main event. Then guests dined al fresco in the Hamanassett gardens.

Dinner consisted of a honey, lavender, lacquered duck but it was almost out-shined by dessert, a caramelized pear tatin with gorgonzola ice cream

The guests, now dressed in their finest wears, finished up their long day in the kitchen and dined on their delectable dinner in the Hamanassett Dining Room.

Bon Appetit!
