Our Cookery Courses


French Cuisine

Cook simple dishes using local produce in the atmosphere and fun of our farmhouse kitchen – with a soupçon of culture thrown in!

Our cookery courses are one, three or six day. Our residential three day/four night and six day/six night programmes offer basically the same culinary programme, the latter having two ‘free’ days in which to explore the many other interesting areas Normandy has to offer.  Sinéad will willingly share her experience of the area with guests, helping them plan their trip to ensure they make the most of their Normandy adventure.   Please note that if you don’t see a course that suits you, tell us what you want and we’ll design one to meet your requirements.

Mondays and Fridays are market days, so we usually start our day there at 9a.m, picking ingredients before heading to La Blonderie for our hands-on class and after-class, three-course lunch, washed down with a glass of local organic cider, or wine.

On other days (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) classes begin at 10a.m at La Blonderie. We usually wind up around 3- 3.30p.m.  Learn more…
