More information about
the indoor barbecue shows

Held by expert and passionate chefs, the demonstrations of the indoor cooking show will focus on an appliance increasingly appreciated by the French: the plancha.The Plancha is a large, thick enameled cast iron cooking plate on which food is cooked by direct contact. The food does not touch the flame, which allows a healthy cooking, a perfect seizure and preserves the full flavor of food. It provides an answer to the disadvantages of the barbecue.

My goal is to share my knowledge with you throughout the year.
