‪I highly recommend Walnut Grove Cookery School. Beautiful location, comfortable accommodations and most importantly a first class cooking education. The owners, Chef Maynard and Freya, take participants on a well thought out experience that is guaranteed to expand anyone's cooking knowledge, skills and experience. Students have the benefit of Chef Maynard's encyclopedic knowledge of cooking that is efficiently and effectively presented. Teaching is by lecture, demonstration and (mostly) hands on practice of a wide range of cooking techniques. The atmosphere is a perfect blend of serious professional information presented in a fun and engaging manner. Anyone interested in food, cooking and learning will have an outstanding experience at this school. ‬

‪Great setting. Great comfort. An excellent mix of presentation, variety & difficulty. Chef Maynard could not have been more generous in his attitude or of passing on some of his great knowledge & skills. To say Freya was very attentive and paid attention to our every comfort & and any concerns, would be a wild understatement. And all the food prepared & presented to us was Michelin star quality : all the ingredients were also the best. Enjoyably busy at times but equally fully relaxing. I have no negatives to say. And I was lucky to be in the company of 4 equally keen & inquisitive would be cooks/chefs. ‬

‪Maynard and Freya the owners of the School are both highly professional and wonderfully human. They run a place where dreams can begin to be formed and give the teaching that can make thiose same dreams come true. Maynard had intended to be an orchestral musician in his youth but fortunately for us changed direction to become a chef. It would be true to say he now plays symphonies with our palates. Freya is the most energetic person I have ever met and her work in keeping the kitchen clean, waiting at table, preparing breakfast and a thousand other things all added to the jiy of this experience. The accommodation is luxurious, the grounds attractive and the kitchen and teaching areas equipped with everything one needs to help improve one's own skills.
We were a group of five and our backgrounds so diverse that the times we had for chatting we fascinating. The days spent at Walnut Grove were part demonstration and part hands on. The tips we were given as much as the menus were very valuable and will change how i work in own kitchen at home. The attention to detail was great and I have learnt if you get the preparation right you can enjoy entertaining guests because you can spend more time with them. Already just a week after being there I have put many things into practice and can only say that I hope that what I learnt from Maynard will stay with me for life. Anyone who has an interested in improving their cooking should consider going to Walnut Grove. It is a life enhancing experience and will increase anyone's pleasure in providing good food to friends and families. The standards are high
and the chef demanding in a very non 'cheffy '. My days at Walnut Grove where as a result of a gift. I have to say it was one of the best I have ever received. I just loved the place and the people and find the thought of cooking very exciting. If you want to improve your culinary skills you know where to go. I promise.‬

‪The Walnut Grove Cookery school is located in the French countryside, a beautiful setting for a cooking vacation. Our lodging was a lovely 200+ year old cobblestone building, very comfortable and spacious. The cooking classes were held in another very old and charming building. Chef Maynard and his lovely wife Freya were welcoming and so hospitable during our stay. The majority of our time was spent in the kitchen. We watched demonstrations, practiced and tried what we had observed, and then helped in all of the cooking preparations. Chef Maynard is an excellent teacher, patient but with high expectations. We learned so many techniques, used such a variety of ingredients, and worked on trying to replicate Chef Maynard's unique and innovative plating designs. The food was scrumptious! A week of fun, laughing, learning, and making new friends. I would highly recommend Walnut Grove to anyone interested in cooking and wonderful food and wine. ❤‬

‪My 5 day live-in Walnut Grove Cookery course was great fun, highly rewarding and transformed my ability to prepare, enjoy, and share food with others. Since I've come home parties large and small, and everyday meals have been more interesting to plan and the results delicious.There's something special in the way Chef Maynard and Freya designed the curriculum, menus, logistics (ie, no washing up, or commuting), lodging facilities, and the renovated farmhouse itself, in a real Walnut Tree Grove. I was there with 7 other family members who I rarely get to see, and this was a wonderful way to share our precious time together. The countryside is lovely even in mid-November, and our side trip to the functioning old windmill with its charming caretaker Louis taught us a great deal about the marvels of old methods of engineering long before machines used electricity and electronics. Highly recommended!‬

Dear Aozora Thank you so much, it was such a pleasure hosting you and all your family and we are so glad you enjoyed your time with us. I have seen some fantastic photos from Naomi of dishes she has recreated at home, and shared them on our facebook page!! We have just come back today (first course of the year) from visiting le Moulin des Guès and Louis is looking good! Coming from 12 generations of millers he is certainly an expert on his windmill. Thanks again for choosing the Walnut Grove best regards Maynard and Freya

‪What a fantastic week! My vacation was a milestone birthday and bucket list trip. From our warm welcome at the train station, to saying goodbye at the farewell dinner, and everything in-between, it was a perfect vacation. I learned the fine art of baking croissants (still learning now that I'm home), creating and designing with sugar, appetizers and main courses. Most importantly, we learned how to pull it all together in a five-star presentation. It was great fun, with great people and fantastic value. ‬

‪I cook food. Chef Maynard designs meals. In his 5-day cooking course, Maynard’s well-thought out curriculum taught us the basics of knife skills, basic building blocks of stocks, and constructing a well-designed meal from appetizers to desserts. His passion for his craft was evident and his patience in sharing his skills amazing (although I think we did test his patience). The classes were jam-packed with tips and techniques that Maynard made looks so effortless, but that will require much practice on my part. Freya’s cheery nature and boundless energy showed how much she enjoyed the business they built together. Her attention to detail was so evident in the accommodations and the tablescapes she created for breakfast and lunch. The excursion to the working windmill was charming and the guest pastry chef a real “treat!” This was a unique vacation that our family will treasure forever. I highly recommend this adventure and give many thanks to Maynard and Freya!‬

‪My wife and I attended the idealic location in early October. The location ws perfect, Maynard and Freya were perfect host. We left with skills and enthusiasm for cookling. Most people can cook but the thought you put nto plating the dish seems to make the plate come alive. This was a great 5 day course.‬

‪I've been to a number of cooking schools and for me this was by far the best. What I loved was that your were taken back to the basics and taught what made a good meal, rather than just showing what can be done. As a result I now cook with a lot more confidence, and experimentation, as I have a better understanding of how sauces should be made, meat and vegetables cooked, etc, as well as being taught presentation skills. I'd highly recommend it.‬
