We are very excited to announce that soon, we will be welcoming a brand new next-door neighbor. The historic Ross/McMullen House, home to the Royal Canadian Legion since 1948, has been sold, and is about to be converted into a world-class cooking school. Our source suggests that it might be up and running by the fall of 2018.
According to our friend, Michel Baron, who is working on the project, the new venture will offer a cooking program for up to 80 students and will be certified by the Ministry of Education. The new school will be associated with world-renowned French chef Alain Ducasse.
Chef Ducasse is world-famous (check out www.alain-ducasse.com), and has a number of prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants in Monaco, France, and the UK, as well as other ventures in the United States, China, Japan, and the Middle East. He also runs a cooking school in the heart of Paris, offering classes in various styles of cuisine, as well as wine appreciation and education for all levels of expertise. His mission is to bring people together around a passion for discovering and learning to cook delicious food. The opportunity to attend these classes are open to anybody, and he even has classes that cater to children.
At the new school in Prince Edward County, aspiring professional chefs will be able to study classical traditions in cookery, as well as modern techniques using the latest equipment. There will also be classes available to join for people at all levels of ability. Once they are fully underway, we will look forward to pairing up some packages with the school, offering our guests the opportunity to stay and play, so to speak.
We look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of this exciting new addition to Prince Edward County.
