Each day we will make a variety of typical French breads and patisserie, using local flour and ingredients wherever possible. And every afternoon you will have to opportunity to explore the village and environs, or volunteer to help the chefs prepare that evening’s supper. Our menu will use seasonal and local ingredients, will be typically French and often de la région: panade au poulet du Périgord, cassoulet de canard et porc, tartiflette avec charcuterie, agneau roti avec pommes de terre boulangères.*
We will tour a local vineyard where we will taste the local wines and eat ‘en plein air’ on long tables next to the vines. And finally, on the last day of your retreat, we will hold a party in the presbytery garden to celebrate your time in Auvillar, all that you have learnt and the friendships you have made. And, as is fitting, we will invite our friends from around the village who have been so helpful in putting together a wonderful stay for you all.
* We will be pleased to cater for vegetarians but regret this atelier will not be suitable for vegans.
