去年,在圣诞节前不久,在思考几个月之后,我终于决定宣布我在Médoc的家里举办研讨会。我犹豫了一下,我是矛盾的,它实际上是个好主意吗?

9个月后,答案很清楚。是的,它是一个梦幻般的想法。我担心让人们失望,我想知道我们的设施是否足够好。如果我足够好。我也想知道,要完全诚实,如果我愿意托设研讨会,如果是那些来的人都是......就像我想象的那么好。

在我的最后一篇文章中,我提到了我餐厅的统计数据。这里是我的研讨会的一个。来来并不好的人。零。我知道,我无法信服。但这是事实,它让我令人难以置信的快乐。众多人写的人表示满意,往往是非常个人信件,但这里是一个评论,让我的心脏温暖,留下了一个把妻子和女儿带到车间的好人,给了我们一些良好的想法,谁的积极性在各方面都是传染性的。

MIMI的研讨会是您想要告诉大家的那些经历之一,但拼命地尽量不要因为害怕从来没有能够获得回访的开放!但是,看着她和她的家人如何对我想要帮助他们的每一个承诺都超越了,这比他们想象的更大成功。而且,虽然“是半法国人和(她是)不舒服的谈论金钱”,但我是美国人,没有问题播出......这是一个讨价还价!持续的同时!感谢Mimi和Oddur,与我们共享您的才华,家庭,生活方式和家。你给了我们一个很棒的礼物!“Rob Kline,workshop guest June 2015

As I think back to all the wonderful people I’ve met in the past year I get very emotional and nostalgic and there is a part of me that feels that next year’s crop simply won’t be able to compete with this year’s (now I’m talking like a sensitive headmistress on graduation day). But that’s how I felt after every class. Everything was special, each class in it’s own different way. We’ve had big classes, small classes, mixed classes, ladies only. We’ve had experienced cooks and beginners, couples, sisters, old friends and new friends. A lot of wine enthusiasts, newlyweds and one lady who bought a house, adopted one of our puppies and threw a wedding banquet in our restaurant. There’s been lot more tears than I ever could have imagined, mainly tears of joy of course but moments of real tenderness. I’ve had a smashing time.

现在我们正在进入下一年的秋天月,在明年里一直在想,很多东西已经排队了,我今年夏天下定决心,我们肯定会在明年再次做研讨会。威廉希尔高尔夫球我计划在稍后宣布日期,但自9月初以来,我已经淹没了询问明年日期的电子邮件。我明白大多数人都来自遥远的地方,并且像需要计划一样旅行。所以我决定在今年的早期宣布,在这篇文章结束时,您可以找到明年的所有日期。

This year’s workshops have all been in the same format. We meet for breakfast, cook lunch together then we tend to take a little break (a big lunch with lots of wine simply calls for it) or have an outing until we start cooking again and have dinner together. And as they say in America, if it ain’t broken why fix it! So we’ll stick to our guns, won’t raise the price (500 euros per day per person all meals and wine included. Which means a three-day class is 1.500 euros per person). I will help people find suitable accommodation in the region (we’re far more experienced now than in the early days – and while I do recommend to people to rent a car so they can explore the region they are by no means obliged to, we will pick them up at the station/airport if that’s needed.
我们今年的几个变化之一是我决定不做任何2天的研讨会,它太短,我觉得我们只需要3天或更长时间。所以所有研讨会都是3或4天。

As I said it’s all been overwhelmingly positive but there is always room for improvement. One thing we will fix this fall and next year is to be more organised in certain areas. A lot of people are interested in photography and while we tried to introduce some photo “lessons” here and there we feel that it’s better to be clear about who wants what. So from now on, if any of you booking a class are particularly interested in photography you should simply mention that when you reserve a space and one of the days we will split up the class, some will cook others will style and shoot. Also, one area that I’ve found people to be extremely interested in is wine and wine tasting (who would have thought ha ha). So next year we have decided to branch out a little and offer more formal wine tasting classes. While we always have great wines (and do a lot of blind tastings anyway with exceptional wines) next year we’ll be doing two workshops that focus even more on wine and exceptional vintages. The price for those needs to be higher so we can go deeper into the cellars of Médoc and unearth some treasures ( a supplement of 500 euros will be added to those classes).
