About the Workshops
At Willow Vale Cooking School we plan our calendar around the garden and tailor our classes based on what vegetables are in season, reinforcing our beliefs around living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Bruno will cook and decipher the recipes giving lots of advices, details and “tricks of the trade” making it as clear and enjoyable as possible.
You will have the opportunity to get involved in helping Bruno or stand back, watch and enjoy if you prefer during the 2 and ½ hours workshop.
This will be followed by a 3 courses lunch.
We provide homemade Kombucha, chilled infusions, filtered rainwater and tea/coffee, and you are more than welcome to bring any additional drinks.
We will also send you home with a goodie bag which includes recipes from the class, an apron, Willow Vale Cooking School honey and homemade infusions.
Workshops run from 9.30am until 3pm
Please read our Terms and Conditions before booking.

Most people, who have experienced good “old school” French food will have been struck by the honest depths of flavours, followed by a soothed, comforting feeling.
We could call it the ultimate comfort food, but don’t be fooled…this is sophisticated cooking.

Australian truffles from Manjimup are renowned for their premium quality, due to the amazing work done by regional producers. I, myself originally from the South West of France (home of the French truffle) can honestly say Australian truffles are as good as any European ones.

I love bread! Maybe a bit too much for my health! Historically bread goes back very far in time. Historians say up to 8000BC in the Middle East. Of course, over time, techniques have been developed and lots of recipes were created around the world.

Flame did play a big part in the rise of human species. Cooking with flame is the most primitive way of cooking, but in my opinion it is also one of the most technical.
