The French Chef at Home was invited to bring a taste of ‘la belle France’ to the food loving town of Malton last week as Yves took part in one of Malton Cookery School’s chef’s tables.
The evenings are a chance for guests to enjoy dinner cooked by a select range of chefs from around the region in informal surroundings.
Guests can get up close and personal as the chef prepares seasonal dishes and are encouraged to make the most of having the chef’s expertise on hand.
Sporting raspberry and black coloured ‘chef’s whites’, Yves cut quite a dash as he prepared the three course menu , while answering questions from the ten lucky guests.
Classically trained under acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse, Yves showcased his skills through a range of dishes combing the traditional gourmet flavours of France with seasonal fresh Yorkshire produce.
The menu included
- Marbled pate with red mullet, confit pepper with tomato, basil and aniseed jelly and pesto and parmesan crisp
- Confit beef with black truffle confit potatoes, mixed vegetables and bacon crisps
- Louis XV Hazelnut and praline crunchy biscuit bitter chocolate mouse with a cocoa glaze and stewed raspberries
Yves made his home in Yorkshire after falling in love with ‘God’s own county’ during holidays here with his ‘Britophile’ wife Anne. Anne’s first introduction to Yorkshire was on a school exchange visit when she loved it so much she pledged to come back and live here with her family.
