Special 20% discount for knowitall.ch clients who sign up before 31 December, 2013

A new cookery school has just opened in Nyon, offering a wide variety of culinary workshops, in both French and English.

Conveniently located in the new arcade opposite the Nyon cinema, Les Papilles à la Fête, is offering classes for aspiring chefs of all ages, at times that should suit everyone from moms with kids, through to busy professionals.

Asked why she decided to set up the new school, Céline Chevalley told knowitall.ch, “As a trained chef, I have always been passionate about cooking, and am always looking for new ways in which to share my recipes and skills with others, especially young children. My philosophy is simple: people should be able to learn to cook in a way that enables them to reproduce one of my recipes at home.”


The school offers day-time weekly classes running over a period of 5 to 6 weeks for children aged 4 years and above and after-school weekly classes running over a term for older children aged 8 and over. For adults, there are a number of options ranging from mid-week morning and lunch classes, through to evening classes and special courses on a Saturday.

Take a look at the Les Papilles à la Fête website to get an idea of the range of mouth-watering dishes that you can learn to make at the school.  Whether you want to discover how to make simple meals including pasta, gourmet dishes using duck, or fancy cakes requiring creative decorations, Les Papilles à la Fête has a course to suit most palates.  Birthday parties can also be arranged, as can team-building courses, and lessons for newly-weds.  Flexibility is paramount at the school and classes can be adapted to meet the needs of most customers. Just let Céline know what dishes you would like to create, if there is enough demand, she will endeavour to create a course for you!


One customer who trialed a recent course told us, “The premises were really easy to access, and were well furbished and equipped with top-quality appliances. What I really appreciated was the high level of interaction between the chef and participants, making it easier and more fun to learn. In short, the course was very professional and the quality of the products just perfect!”
