The finest chefs in the world…!

Last week the Meritas residents had a chance to show the ability to cook to Viex-Port. What a dinner it was. It was a beautiful feast prepared by the «finest chefs in the world» living in Meritas. Burgers of perfect taste were cooked for the boys and coke and ice tea like an ambrosia was proudly standing on the table. Oh, what a dinner it was…

Boys sat on their wooden chairs chairs, and were all quiet and solemn at first. This was the first time they had to try «homemade» burgers for many of them, but the hunger for the feast burned within many of them. Not a normal hunger, but the kind of hunger that drives men mad. A powerful dark hunger that lingers long after your stomach is filled. After all this was no normal feast.

One of the boys close to the end of the table could wait no more. He picked up his knife and fork and dug in. He ate incredibly fast and ferociously, ripping and tearing the meat and washing it down with some Coke. After a while, all the others also began to eat. Girls didn’t eat as much due to the diets and healthy lifestyle but boys savouring the our burgers made the girls’ mouths fill with saliva…

The dinner was nearly complete, most of the girls were quiet at that point, and only a few boys were still picking at the pieces of meat left with their knifes and forks. They thanked us for the incredible dinner they had. We spent the rest of the dinner by telling jokes and funny stories to each other. Oh, the joy and satisfaction they felt was so evident after that dinner, and what a dinner it was! What a dinner indeed.


On Saturday night we decided to cook cheese fondue in Meritas, because all of us didn’t have dinner and we all wanted to sit together and chat with each other.
So we made cheese fondue with some potatoes, mushrooms, and we put some garlics inside so that the mushroom did not stick together.
It was really tasty and traditional. We had so much fun and we were celebrating the upcoming ski holidays.
We are planning to cook it again, come and join us ! ! !

Come Dine With Us!

A very nice activity that the senior students started organizing and participating to is called “Come Dine With Me” – perhaps some of you may be familiar with the popular TV program… Well, it implies a bit of planning and especially the willingness to display one’s culinary talents, but the results are always very interesting!

Last Tuesday the Meritas girls were invited to cook at Villa Mies – and it was already an invitation worth accepting in itself due to the fact that Villa Mies is the latest addiction to the outside Villas of CDL and not all of us had seen it yet! However, no matter how good (or… “differently good”!) the cooking is, it always turns into a fun night where boarders meet in a different environment and are thus able to socialize in a more relaxed way.

It was a beautiful girls’ night!
