Available year-round by reservation on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the market days in Beaune
10 am to 5 pm; 250 euros per person
The Cook’s Atelier Day in Burgundy is a full day of exploring, cooking, and tasting. It’s designed to introduce visiting guests to the delightful gastronomic culture of the region (and to Beaune, of course!). The program includes a market tour in the heart of Beaune, a hands-on cooking class in our atelier, teaching the classics of Burgundian cuisine, and a seven-course lunch, including a cheese tasting of local fromages, and a wine tasting paired with the menu.
We meet in the morning to explore the famed local market, where we select our ingredients for the cooking class. As class begins, crisp white aprons accompany a glass of chilled bubbly. The menu is seasonal and market-inspired and highlights the small artisan food producers of the region. We prepare lunch together and learn classic techniques guests can use at home. After the cooking class in our atelier kitchen, guests sit down in our dining room and enjoy a seven course French lunch with table service, sophisticated and generous wine pairings exploring Burgundy's terroir, and a full cheese course, in celebration of the bounty of Burgundy.
Expect to learn the secrets of shopping and cooking as the French do, while tasting all that Burgundy has to offer. All instruction is in English.
Please note, our cooking classes are designed for adults and there is some walking involved. As much as we love little ones, we are not able to accommodate them during our Wednesday and Saturday programs in consideration of the other guests participating. Please send us an email as we can sometimes accommodate private groups with children on other days of the week. Our cooking classes fill up very quickly. Reservations are taken first come first serve. Early bookings are strongly advised.
