My ‘culinary vacation’: Learning how to cook like a Food Network star
When I first pulled into the driveway of the Mirabelle house, a gorgeous 12,000-square-foot estate in Falmouth, I could tell a good time was brewing. An outdoor kitchen was being prepped and hor d’oeuvres were placed elegantly on tables overlooking a vast field of green; a perfect slice of the Maine countryside. A swimming pool was bubbling and classical music played softly out of speakers disguised as rocks.
I was there to take part in a demo class for an upcoming “culinary vacation,” which offers guests a fully immersive foodie weekend, amongst about 50 of New England’s top chefs. The food was excellent, five star restaurant quality and best of all, I helped make it.
