The Palace to launch cooking classes
The Palace — The Old Town will be introducing cooking classes at its signature restaurants Thiptara and Asado in September.
Jason Harding, general manager at The Palace, said that the classes would alternate between the restaurants on a monthly basis.
“Not everybody wants to learn to cook with it, they just want to have a great afternoon with the chef, talk about some wines, some food, some matching — if they can pick up some cooking skills along the way then great, but it’s kind of a social thing,” said Harding.
The classes are part of a refocusing on the hotel’s F&B offer, which most recently has included opening Thiptara and Asado earlier from 6pm “to encourage families through with some discounted offers”, added Harding.
“There are huge amounts that we want to do,” he said, explaining that he was currently focused on potential investments on the product for 2011.
