I seem to have developed a strange hobby. A couple of times a year I go to France and work in a kitchen at a Michelin-starred restaurant. I've found this to be an excellent way of learning how little I know and to add to my limited body of knowledge and experience. Last march I spent time in a kitchen in the medieval village of Riquewihr in the Alsace. I've placed a diary of my experience there at the Auberge du Schœnenbourg on my web site. I'd also be interested in hearing from others who have had similar adventures.
