Vegan French Cuisine in August

Event Time:

4:30 pm

Being a vegan in France hasn’t been especially easy in the past which means vegans have missed out on wonderful French cuisine. Here at Le Cheval Blanc we’re aiming to change all of that by offering this themed four day (five night) course concentrating on vegan French cuisine.  Some dishes are already vegan, some are easily veganized, while with others it’s taken a bit more creativity to remove all the animal products.  The techniques you’ll learn on this course can also be used to veganize other dishes when you get home!

Group size is small, typically 4, maximum 6, so you’ll get plenty of individual attention. Workshops take place in my kitchen, my workspace and the centre of my foodie world which our guests always appreciate. We had air conditioning installed last year, so you don’t have to worry about summer heat.

You’ll make on average 6 dishes per day which will include:

  • Pastry dishes such as Savoury Tart, Pissadeliere (A cross between a pie and a pizza)
  • Savoury dishes such as Galettes (buckwheat pancakes), Vichyssoise, Chestnut & Mushroom Bourguignon, a variety of Pâtés, vegetable gratins and the classic southern dish of Cassoulet
  • Side dishes such as Potato and Spinach Croquettes, Baked Green Beans & Tofu, Gratin Dauphinoise and Petit Pois a la Française
  • Classic desserts such as Chocolate Mousse, Crème brûlée, chocolate tart, and sumptious Gateaux.
  • Vegan cheese.  Well, we are in France after all!

This cooking holiday will be all about using the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.  That means of course that we may need to alter some of the dishes we cook in order to take advantage of what’s available.

Many people extend their stay and make a holiday of it. It’s a beautiful part of France with plenty to do. There are endless outdoor activities on the doorstep and rewarding day trips to be done including the world heritage site of Albi. Or you can just relax in our idyllic riverside village.

If you like the sound of this holiday but the dates don’t work for you, we may be able to run it at other times, especially if you’re a group. Get in touch to start a conversation
