A Taste of France (French baking at Little Trewern)

Since opening in 2013, I have discovered that our guests are very partial to the “french-themed food” that comes from the farmhouse kitchen at Little Trewern!

Indeed many guests have asked for recipes and cooking tips, whilst others have asked if I could teach them how to make the croissants, the tartes tatins, the brioche, as well as the sweet and savoury eclairs that I serve here.

So our guests can now learn French pâtisserie skills whilst staying  at Little Trewern, thereby combining a holiday in our romantic hideaway with 1-1 or 1-2 tuition in “French baking” and Pâtisserie.

There are two options: one course is focused upon Viennoiserie, and the other upon traditional Pâtisserie.

  • The Viennoiserie course includes Brioche, Croissants, Kugelhupf, Fougasse, and Rum baba/savarin.
  • The Pâtisserie course includes Éclairs – gâteau St Honoré, Tarte tatin (puff pastry), Macaroons, Pate sucrée.

Guests will need to book a minimum of two nights’ B&B, and the cost of the course is £105 for one person, or £115 for two. This price includes all ingredients and lunch on the middle day when we are busy baking.
