5 days Incentive Gourmet Cooking Course Deluxe
”The best thing we know is when the dining room is bubbling with laughter, dinner conversation, the clinking of glasses and the sound of people who taste something good. We really don’t enjoy the formality of a super correct fine restaurant. It seems to us that pleasure and having fun when people gather around a meal time is better when no one is anxious about how properly to use the silverware.”
This approach we sometimes call “new creative gastronomy”, but in pure Skanska it is called “cooking”.
