Willow Vale Cooking School Workshops

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.

Workshops run from 9.30am until 3pm

Please read our Terms and Conditions before booking.

Cuisine Bretonne

The cuisine from Brittany is quite robust. Bretons like to retain a strong identity in their culture. Their dishes make the most of what is around. They are renown for being amazing fishermen but also to grow a lot of vegetables. Artichokes, cauliflowers and cabbages are the meant part of their production. In this workshop, I chose dishes which i think are a good representation of Breton cooking outside Brittany and will tempt you to this amazing coastal region of France.

French bread making

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.
