Alsace is a destination with a thousand culinary traditions. The cuisine is gourmet, rustic and tasty. The region has typical recipes that only the locals can pass on and teach...
By the way, do you know what a lamala is? Or do you know the essential ingredient of all good fruit tarts made in Alsace?
Choosing to stay at the Hameau d'Eguisheim is an excellent idea to learn how to cook some Alsatian recipes during your holidays. The techniques for preparing a good sauerkraut or a delicious kouglof will no longer be a secret for you!
Our partner Jeen Heine, the talented chef of "Chez Mémé", will give you her good advice and tips during a private cooking lesson during your stay in Eguisheim. During 4 hours, prepare together a delicious meal with local and organic products. Then sit down in the old wine storehouse, where we will have taken care to prepare the dishes with the wines of our domain.
Feel like concocting something else? "Granny" has everything you need in her pantry! Jeen offers a wide range of different courses: vegetarian recipes, good burgers, the surprising Lebanese cuisine or even cooking courses for lovers or parents and children... And as "Mémé" has more than one trick up her sleeve, Jeen also offers grilling and barbecue courses at the Weber Grill Academy Alsace ®.

The Grill Academy of the Weber brand, the inventor of the covered barbecue, has set up its stoves in Alsace, at the Hameau d'Eguisheim. The world of the barbecue will have no more secrets for you after a course given by Jeen Heine, grill master of "Chez Mémé". Whether it's charcoal, gas, pellet or plancha, Jeen offers a range of advice during these convivial moments in the courtyard of our wine estate in Eguisheim.
Every self-respecting carnivore dreams of aperfectly cooked, rare prime rib. You know, with that delicious crust that coats the meat in a delicate grilled flavour... Are you salivating yet? With the Weber Grill Academy Alsace cooking courses, you learn, among other things, that it is the famous Maillard reaction, obtained at a temperature of about 250°C, that gives the steak this taste.
You will also learn how to cook with a lid on; the secret to releasing the flavours and tenderness of sausages and meat. At the end of the course, the budding roasters are invited to share their dishes, matched with wines from the Pierre-Henri Ginglinger family estate.
Tired of cooking the same thing over and over? Chef Jeen Heine also gives you some tips on how to make a perfect marinade and how to cut up the meat.
During the Grill Weber Academy Alsace course, like a serial griller, you prepare a complete menu on the barbecue, such as pizza, fish or amazing desserts.
On your aprons! Ready to go? Grill!
The Weber Grill Academy Alsace courses take place in our charming guest house, the Hameau d'Eguisheim. They can be booked directly with our partner Jeen Heine, "Chez Mémé".
