I was nicely surprised by my boyfriend to a expensive cooking class at the Hotel Alpenblick's gourmet restaurant and an overnight stay. The cooking class included a full day of preparation and cooking with the Chef and his crew and also the 4-course dinner afterwards.
As someone that cooks often and with pleasure I was looking forward to the experience and to learn some techniques and tips. We arrived at 10am to start with the preparation. It all went down to us chopping things, not really seeing how to prepare them, but mostly hearing about it.
The Chef did not teach us anything. It was only his crew which was pretty stressed and apparently not very happy to have us there in the kitchen. Aside from one or two nice faces, we realized the crew did not like to do this as they have to do it while they are cooking for the restaurant guests. Meaning, the chef pressured them to deliver their dishes regardless of us being there. Several times we did not know where to go or what to do as no one was paying attention to us. Not even the ladies at the reception were attentive. We were also flipped off by one of the members of the crew as he did not have time for us. All and all, the dinner at the end was great, but would never reccomend this experience to anyone. Specially if you like to cook and look forward to learn something from a Pro. I personally did not learn anything. Also the hotel room was old school and overpriced. 300CHF for an old room that does not even include some basics like soap, shampoo and lotion? Would only come back for dinner, but not for the food.
