Many enjoyed a culinary experience with French chef, Gilbert Bordillon who welcomed guests to his table. The adventure began with a full course dinner prepared in the evening by Gilbert. On the following two evenings, guests joined him in the kitchen to create simple yet delectable full course dinners that take advantage of Cape Breton's natural bounty.
Cooking with only the freshest and finest ingredients, Gilbert demonstrated how to prepare them with care and imagination. He believed that cooking is far more than following a recipe; it is the application of a lifestyle reflecting respect for food and the person enjoying it. Really good meals should feed the spirit as well as the body. Guests took away many savoury memories along with new skills and techniques that they could use every day and share with their family and friends.
