Cooking in Antigua

The very elegant Curtain Bluff Hotel in Antigua seems like an unlikely place to have guests in the kitchen. But some one is in the kitchen with Chef Christophe Blatz, who has been there 14 seasons, and its visiting gourmets from around the world. In fact, realizing that not only do travellers want tans and fun in the sun and sand, they also want experiences, this one is about cuisine. The Alsatian born chef, with the ooh so-o sexy French accent holds classes with a minimum of six and maximum of 20. The latter is broken up into small classes where the sous and pastry chefs get involved. It’s a 2 hour hands-on class always with Blatz’s own tropical creations and you get to eat your own cooking. The demand is growing for these lessons in this eco friendly, well established hotel so Chef is increasing his time at his workshop cum kitchen.
