THE COOKING SCHOOL AT DOMAINE DE CROMEY

Our intention from the outset was to create an environment where the best of Burgundy could be assembled, shared, and taught.

The kitchen at Cromey, the center of all household activity, was thoughtfully designed as a teaching facility and a workshop, right down to the sliding metal workshop doors.  Workshops at Cromey are hands-on sessions where the food and wine of Burgundy truly come alive.

FOOD WORKSHOPS

Good cooking is based on good technique and good ingredients. Simple products become classic regional specialties. And from these classical foundations spring modern ideas. Our goal with these Workshops is to bring all of these elements together. Exceptional ingredients, solid technique and a modern sensibility.

1) LA TECHNIQUE

Join us for a 3-day introduction to how we translate Burgundy food (and wine) here at the Domaine de Cromey.  We’ll look at Burgundy Basics: the ingredients, specialties and classic recipes that make Burgundy a culinary destination. You’ll learn techniques that transcend recipes and that will give you the confidence to explore your own ideas. And we’ll spice it all with themed wine tastings that will bring Burgundy ‘terroir’ to the table and to food pairings.

OUR WINE SCHOOL

No doubt about it, Burgundy Wine is a complex subject. But where better than in Burgundy to take the challenge? Cromey Workshops give you more than just the basics, we’ll take you inside Burgundy. The people who make the wine. The subtlety, precision and nuance that they call ‘terroir’. None of that commercial stuff you can find anywhere. Real Burgundy.
