What you'll do

FEBRUARY dates are Valentine's Specials for 2 people only ending with a candlelit dinner.
I'll take you on a unique French cultural day. We'll meet, greet and eat as French person would. A visit to the shops or market if you're coming on a Wednesday which is the biggest for miles around and bustling and full of life, experiencing all that the French do in buying local produce and then taking those ingredients and making a traditional French meal in my old bakery that is now a Gite. What's more I guarantee it will be better than you could buy in a restaurant. I'll make sure there's plenty of coffee and light bites and pastries to keep us going and even a very local tipple to try!
You can choose to eat the meal I've taught you to make in my house over looking the wonderful Normandy countryside, or you can choose to cook a larger meal for your family and take it away.
Popular choices to make are
Normandy Pork or Chicken Casserole
Beef Bourguignon
Moules Marinieres
Normandy Apple Tart
Crepes with Calvados Sauce
I'll be with you every step of the way and you'll have detailed shopping lists to make sure you have the right ingredients to cook a fantastic meal.
I'll award you a souvenir certificate to say you have completed my Masterclass and you'll have unique and privileged access to directly to me for any future culinary questions and answers.
Service Chef!
Other things to note
You don't need any cooking experience or able to speak French, I'll be with you each step of the way to make your day one to remember and bring together a great meal.

This was a fun, but good, learning experience. We came away wiser and more competent than we were at the beginning. The shopping experience was useful. we enjoyed eating our meal, and really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere built up by our teacher. Well worth participating in.

A knowledgeable and inspirational chef. Spencer related extremely well with the family and our grandson aged 12, who he was sharing his skills with. He was well prepared, and very personable. The food was delicious!! A joy I meet!
