L’Ecole Valrhona in Tain L’Hermitage France


Last year, i was one of the few lucky people which got a fully arranged trip to the Valrhona ‘s training centre in Tain L”Hermitage, France .

We received a very intense training from Jean Marie Hiblot, who is Pastry chef at Plaza Atenee, where Alain Ducasse also has a restaurant.

It was a full package iclusive lunches,dinners,hotel tarining etc.

I really enjoyed and off course learned a lot.

And may i have a chance i would definitive go again, it was a amazing experience.

The pastry style was really french (eclairs/macaroon etc.) and feminine,(colours).

We went even to

Maison Pic where they have the only female 3Michelin star chef in the world!

And met there the previous Coupe Du Monde winner,cause he is the Pastry chef there.

Fantastic experience!!

Foto’s are taken by the way with my old camera,so maybe there is some quality difference.
