Behind Danielle’s French bistro menu is a passion for simplicity and cooking with quality seasonal produce. Recipes for this class include: a selection of charcuterie and house made giardiniere vegetables with sourdough baquette; Jerusalem artichoke velouté soup with wild slippery jack and pine mushrooms; spatchcocked, grilled quail with tiny brussel sprouts, chestnuts and madeira jus; and for dessert, a deliciously warm caramelised, upside down fig ‘tarte tatin’ with clotted cream.
