COGNAC CHEF AT DEGUSTIBUS COOKING CLASS
As a Foodie, I can't resist not to attend this particular class where I can learn the techniques from the Executive Chefs themselves and actually eat the dishes prepared during the class and paired with wines!
Degustibus is held at Macy's 8th floor kitchen area where they hold kitchen demonstrations.
Today, we had Florian V. Hugo, great great grandchild of Victor Hugo. He was also chef at Alain Ducasse's restaurant in Monte Carlo and Paris.
Now, Chef Florian V. Hugo is partners and Chef at his own restaurants Cognac on Broadway and West 55th St and at his new restaurant in the Upper Eastside of New York City's Manhattan called Brasserie Cognac East.
He shares the techniques and recipes of the following dishes we at tonight's class at Degustibus.
Above was the salmon we torched, served with puréed sauce with dill.
And you know what? I just been discovered where to go for good French food in the city! His Brasserie is located on Lexington and 70th St in the Upper Eastside of New York City.
