Remember When We Were in High School and the Michelin-Starred Chef Cooked Us Lunch?

Yeah. Like THAT ever happened.

Yesterday, my kids reported, in an almost off-handed manner, that, oh, by the way, we had a chef prepare lunch in the school cafeteria. He was someone’s dad.


Today when I picked up the local newspaper, I saw this article. Seems the chef, one Renato Favaro, was recently named Luxembourg’s Chef of the Year by Gault et Millau.

Although only the 7th graders got to participate (and neither of my kids are in that grade), in addition to Favaro, Michelin-starred chef Rene Mathieu conducted a workshop for 23 students. But being the bon vivants we are, we have all experienced Chef Mathieu’s cooking at the Bourglinster Chateau (but I confess, I did not know he had a star when we ate there a few weeks ago).

So what do fancy chefs make teenagers for lunch?

The menu included pumpkin soup with almonds, endive salad with Roquefort and walnuts, Cavatelli al Ragu, Trofie al Pesto Genovese, and Le Diplomate aux Fruits D’Automne for dessert, whatever that is. (In case you are curious, here is the entire week’s menu for the school.)


No way.
