French Bistro

Bistros are defined mostly by the foods they serve. French home-style cooking, and slow-cooked foods like cassoulet, a bean stew, are typical.

French Bistro is good home cooked food at its best. expect to make Rillettes,  Cassoulet, Fish Soup with Rouille, Salad Frisee aux Lardons with a perfect poached egg and a vinaigrette using juices from the bacon pan, Crepes Suzette.  

Dishes are examples and do change sometimes depending upon availability and seasonality.

Everyone works individually at their own workstations, sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort as we will be on our feet most of the time.

At the end of the workshop recipes will be emailed to attendees so please ensure you provide an attendee email when booking. Please note, attendees will only be contacted 1 week before the workshop, when a reminder email will be sent. So if you are buying a  workshop for someone else, you, the purchaser, will receive all the booking and confirmation emails, not the attendee.
