Cook Like A 2-Michelin-star Chef – Einstein Gourmet

Ever wanted to cook like a Michelin-star chef? Here are the cooking classes to take, put on by an award-winning chef duo.

The city of St. Gallen in Switzerland has one of the coolest Michelin-star restaurants out there. Not only are there two chefs ( Hi Moses, Hi Sebastian!) but the dynamic and award-winning chef duo regularly give cooking classes to self-professed gourmets

If you can make it to Einstein Gourmet in 5-star luxury Hotel Einstein – then count yourself lucky. Here is a relatively easy but definitely delicious recipe by the two innovative chefs: Sepia Tagliaelle.

Just like the cuisine of Chefs Moses and Sebastian – there are elements of Europe ( German part of Switzerland of course!) and a bit of Asia in their dishes. ‘Fusion’ perhaps only works well for well-trained chefs and this is where it shines.

Cut the shallot and garlic into fine cubes and cook in a pan with butter and olive oil. Add the spinach and parsley and season to taste. Chop the spinach finely.

 

Step 3 Currynage

Put the chicken wings in a saucepan with hot sesame oil and fry well. Add the chopped ginger, lemon grass and lime leaves and sauté briefly. Add the chicken stock, curry paste and coconut milk. Let the stock simmer for half an hour. Now strain the stock and season to taste as desired.

 

Step 4 Prawns
