In an FCIA cooking class at the Henderson Castle, you will be under the tutelage of master chefs trained in French gastronomy. Master Chef Moyet is the architect behind these classes with traditional and eclectic cooking techniques.
Born in Bourges, France, Master Chef Moyet holds a master’s degree in French culinary art. He has owned several successful restaurants in Paris and Kalamazoo, and he opened the Henderson Castle boutique inn to the public in 2011. These classes have been carefully crafted by Chef Moyet to demystify cooking and introduce you to spectacular new recipes and techniques.
Each FCIA cooking class has a specially-crafted menu based around a unique theme. Master Chef Moyet takes pride in the origin of his ingredients. He seeks out the highest quality produce, meat, and other goods from local farmers, western ranches, and high-end international distributors.
These ingredients will be used to create delectable dishes from scratch. All classes are held in Henderson Castle’s state-of-the-art teaching kitchen, designed by Teclab, a local, Kalamazoo-based company. All tools will be provided, so there is no need to bring anything with you. Additionally, recipes will be sent out in advance of the class, although there is no need to read in advance as you will be guided through the recipes on site.
To try out one of these spectacular cooking classes, call Henderson Castle at (269) 344-1827. In addition to the FCIA cooking class, the castle has a wide variety of events for all ages, such as the Murder Mystery Dinner and the Princess Tea Party. Join us for one of our unique events and celebrate Kalamazoo’s local history, gastronomy, and culture with your loved ones.
