Children's Cookery Courses

La Petite Ecole de Cuisine
We are delighted to bring you the dates for the newest course at L'Ecole de Cuisine, specially designed for youngsters.

The pressure for many of us to find exciting and interesting activities to occupy our children during the Easter holidays can be daunting. Almost as daunting as persuading them that healthy eating can be fun! With this in mind, Raymond Blanc has created a cookery course guaranteed to educate, inspire and exhaust even the most unlikely junior~master chefs!

And whilst the youngsters are getting to grips with their new tools of the trade, you can enjoy all the pleasures of a peaceful stay at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons.

Arrive during the afternoon and check in to your luxury accommodation. Whilst you enjoy a glass of Champagne, the children will be given a brief introduction to the school and a behind the scenes tour of the 2 Michelin starred kitchens. They will be equipped with their very own chef's whites and aprons for the day a head.

That evening you are free to dine at leisure in the restaurant, selecting from Raymond Blanc's A la Carte menu before retiring to your room.

An early start for the children ~ La Petite Ecole begins straight after breakfast. For you, the day is your own. Whether you choose to explore nearby Oxford, enjoy the surrounding countryside or simply relax in the comfort of Le Manoir ~ the choice is yours. Feel free to pop into the school to check out the culinary delights and take to odd photograph.

Meanwhile, the pace in La Petite Ecole will be fast, furious and most of all fun... The budding chefs will learn some of the techniques and secrets of Raymond's fabulous cuisine. They will create a feast for lunch to devour in the Milton Room and then explore the grounds. A herb tasting competition in the organic garden will challenge their taste buds before gathering back in the kitchen for an indulgent afternoon of all things sweet ~ the perfect soufflé, a chocolate tasting and creating one of Raymond's favourite childhood desserts 'Floating Islands'.

You are invited to join them for a tea party in the garden and presentation of course certificates to complete the day.
