Yuhuuu!!! Last month I learned French Organic Cooking at Nathalie’s Gourmet Studion, Publika, Solaris Dutamas in conjunction with Melvita’s 30th Anniversary Celebration. It was a hands-on cooking class guided by Chef Natalie herself. We cooked our own organic lunch - main course and dessert. So what was our French Lunch menu of the day?

Haha… I chose to learn how to make the Rose, Lychee and Raspberry Pavlova. The ingredients is quite simple mainly egg white, sugar, maizena (corn flour), rose essence, whipped cream and the fruits plus rose petals for garnishing.

But, oh yes there is always a but the process of making it needs lots of hardwork, time and steps. Pavlova is crispy on the outside with soft, creamy filling inside. Remember to 100% separate the egg yolk out, we only need the egg white. Need about 55 minutes to cook in the over and 55 minutes to cool off before garnishing. We only need the egg white Pavlova is crispy on the outside with soft, creamy filling inside.

Through this Organic Cooking Class, Melvita Malaysia hope to raise awareness on the importance of practicing a green, organic lifestyle. As opting for organic foods means conserving the soil by keeping it from depleted through commercial farming practices; to demonstrate the art of creating delicious balanced dishes, using the wide variety of organic whole foods with healthy cooking techniques and the long term health benefits organic eating brings.



Just a little briefing about Melvita, French biologist and beekeeper Bernard Chevilliat founded Melvita in 1983 as a tribute to the bees. For the past 30 years, Melvita has been a firm advocate of using organically farmed and responsibly picked ingredients. Belle and the Bee becomes a special icon of Melvita’s 30th Anniversary; where the “Bee” was described as a symbol of Melvita’s wisdom, as it understands and appreciates the interconnectivity of the natural world. “Belle” is portrayed as a friend of the bee, a young girl filled with wide-eyed wonder, who loves to explore nature on her bicycle.
