L’Atelier des Chefs

Are you passionate about cooking and interested in expanding your skills? Or simply bored of eating out all the time and want to learn how to cook? L’Atelier des Chefs is a cooking school that offers an extensive list of classes and a unique dining experience. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, an Italian/Asian/French/Mediterranean food lover, you will find a class that suits your interest.

With L’Atelier des Chefs, not only do you get to learn tips and techniques through an interactive hands-on culinary class run by a professional chef, but you also get to enjoy the food that you prepared before your session is over. The overall experience is both educational and enjoyable; Perfect for couples, a group of friends, a birthday celebration, and even a company team building event. The quality of the ingredients, kitchenware, cooking utensils & stations is top notch and the best I’ve seen in Dubai!

The first class I attended was Italian themed. Have a look at the 3-course meal that was prepared:

Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Sauce

Chicken Milanese with Tomatoes and Fresh Pesto

Super Quick Classic Tiramisu

A great component of the class is that you get to act like a food critic and assess the food you and your classmates created. It’s a really rewarding feeling when the food turns out to be delicious. Once you are back home, L’Atelier des Chefs e-mails you the recipe of each dish so that you can re-create the meal for your loved ones 🙂

A great quote that sums up the experience: “I liked the energy of cooking, the action, the camaraderie. I often compare the kitchen to sports and compare the chef to a coach. There are a lot of similarities to it.”
