After cookery and oenology classes, mixology workshops are also on the programme this year
The new season at the Méridien Beach Plaza is an invitation to discover all kinds of taste experiences.
In addition to the cookery and oenology classes, which will begin again in September, mixology workshops are now offered (the art of cocktails).
The classes are held each week at the restaurant or the Intempo bar. Groups are kept small to encourage interaction and are a great opportunity to make some new discoveries.
The Second Head Barman of the Intempo, Yohan Loustaud, is a newcomer on the Méridien Beach Plaza's program of creative workshops. He specializes in combining flavors and mixtures to create amazing cocktails.
Programme: 4 September: "All about Vodka"
Followed by classes on 8 and 22 October, 5 and 19 November and 3 and 17 December.
Jimmy Desrivières has been head of the kitchens at the "Intempo" and "Muse" restaurants since 2009. He has created a range of inventive recipes with a blend of flavors, which can be easily prepared and are within the scope of any food lover.
