Welcome to the Table d'Hôtes


The Table

Charles Cowen - belonging to the Brotherhood of the Marmite d'Or - is at the lights of La Forge.

The metal of his stoves has blushed for nine years under the flames of his furnace M. His spice cupboard overflows small bottles with titles, colors and multiple smells, arranged according to a logic that only the artist knows.
His food is local and organic for the most part. Aude - as well as the neighboring Ariège - allows many farmers to produce - and possibly transform - in a biological or reasoned way.
There are many distribution networks and sales outlets for whom is interested.
This is the case of La Forge for flour, eggs, milk, yogurts, cheeses, vegetables, fruits, meat, chocolate ...

The table d'hôte implies that the races are made in anticipation of specific meals. That's the case, so everything is cool. What luck !

A table shares the same meal. The only questions prior to the development of the menu: Allergies or deep aversion to something ?
At La Forge, the bread is kneaded by hand and baked on the spot.

The wines are from the terroir - Cabardès, Corbières or Minervois - organic for some.

Breakfast is served in the main building, outside on sunny days.
It includes: tea, coffee, milk, hot chocolate, orange juice, bread, croissants, cake, cereals, cheese and cold meats, jams, yogurts, fruits.

Cooking lessons

La Forge has a bright kitchen of beautiful proportions. About 120 m² are available for the preparation and tasting of sumptuous meals.

Equipped professionally, it even offers the possibility of giving courses or cooking courses.

The region is gourmet and the products that are found to cook are of first quality. Home cooking, session on request :

Laure and Charles give bread lessons to be defined according to particular wishes per person or couple.

Chefs or producers invited: Minimum 6 people per course.
Rates according to what the professional "guest cook" requires.
As an indication: Jean-Marc Boyer, starred chef at the Puits du Trésor, asks for 60 € per person, he provides the ingredients and the course is concluded with a meal (starter + main course + dessert) taken together around a table nicely set.
This is not an exhaustive list of possibilities but, between proximity and quality ... Very subjective therefore !
