Various Activities

At « Projet Phoenix – cours de cuisine en ville », whether you are ace in the kitchen or a novice, you will learn how to make simple and delicious recipes! Cooking classes on vegetables, poultry, fish, cheeses, beer ... There is something for every taste!

Gauthier, a Belgian chef, and Valentina, Italian with the passion for cooking, welcome you in Ixelles every Monday, from April 24th (and on Tuesdays for the kids).

But there’s much more to it!

With "Project Phoenix – cours de cuisine en ville" Gauthier and Valentina chose to combine their passion for cooking with the desire to positively contribute to society. For them, food means taste and conviviality, while keeping in mind that the actions in the kitchen have an impact on the environment, the economy and our society.

That is why in their kitchen you will find only local seasonal products, organic when possible. A small explanation will allow to understand the seasons and different uses of the produces, to taste them at their best and avoid any waste.

Also, for Gauthier and Valentina, it is important to highlight the role of local producers. When possible, the producers of the produces used in the course will therefore be there to discuss with the participants.

The courses are organized in cycles of two sessions, in groups of 12 participants. Classes are held in French but we can accommodate English, Italian and Spanish speaking participants.

After cooking together, the participants will share the meal, around a family table. At the end of each session, they will also receive notes with advices on purchasing and cooking different produces, easy to put into practice in the everyday life.

Projet Phoenix also organizes cooking classes for kids (on Tuesdays)!

For our small chefs, cooking classes have a playful side. Interactive games encourage a positive relationship with seasonal food, especially vegetables. Also, to reinforce the fun side, all the kids’ recipes play with the concept of "junk food", but replacing the "junk" part with healthy ingredients!

So, go and check out the calendar of Projet Phoenix’s cooking classes! You will discover that eating sustainably tastes better!
