The French Brasserie

The French Brasserie

Duration: 1 Day

Learn to perfect an eclectic mix of French regional dishes.  This one day cookery experience will teach you how to mix new skills and techniques with a little bit of love just as the French do, to create the following mouth-watering regional French dishes:

  • Soupe au Pistou - This is a fantastic fresh Vegetable soup, originating from France and perfect for Spring and Summer.
  • Baguette - The distinctive bread is the number one variety and can be identified by its crisp crust and length.
  • Bouillabaisse with Rouille - One of the most famous French Fish dishes, you have ever heard of.
  • Pissaladiere - If you love Pizza then you will appreciate this authentic French flat Bread.
  • Cassoulet - This is one of France's most comforting casseroles, traditionally made with Beans, Toulouse sausage or Pork and Duck confit.
  • Poulet Provencal - This classic French dish combines all the flavours and aromas of the Provence.
  • Tarte Tatin - The ultimate French dessert, sweet caramelised Apples on a bed of crispy Puff Pastry.

The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park. The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.
