DOMAINE DE CROMEY COOKING SCHOOL

OUR COOKING SCHOOL

Our intention from the outset was an environment where the best of Burgundy could be assembled, shared, and taught. Workshops at Cromey are hands-on sessions where the food and wine of Burgundy truly come alive in the kitchen at Cromey, which was designed as a teaching facility and a workshop, right down to the sliding metal workshop doors.
