The Cook's Atelier



I had the absolute pleasure of visiting The Cook's Atelier, not once, but twice already this year!  Located in Beaune, it is one of the most charming places in France.  It is a darling 3 floor shop that encompasses a wine shop, culinary boutique and a French cooking school...run by the mother-daughter duo of Marjorie and Kendall.  You can read more about these lovely ladies and how they got started *HERE*

Here is a little peek around their shop...

The Cook's Atelier offers a variety of French cooking classes and workshops, including the one I attended, in June, "A Day in Burgundy."  This truly amazing day started out with a tour of the Wednesday food market in Beaune and was followed by a cooking class, where we learned how to make what we would later eat!  There was delicious cheese {oh how I love French cheese} and lots of wonderful French wine too :)  Everything was outstanding!  Here is a peek at their gorgeous kitchen...

A shot of Kendall, while she was teaching our class.  I am in love with that Lacanche range!!  Did you know that the Lacanche ranges are made in Burgundy?!!...




The original location of The Cook's Atelier is now a darling pied-à-terre that is available to rent. It is a two bedroom apartment, just a short walk from where the new shop is.  My husband and I had the chance to stay there in May.  I adored everything about it!  It is bathed in light and filled with vintage charm, with every attention to detail made, in order to make sure your stay in Beaune is a beautiful one...

You can get more information about the pied-à-terre *HERE*

If you ever find yourself in Beaune, I hope you will take the opportunity to visit The Cook's Atelier and maybe even sign up for one of their cooking classes.  I can't recommend it enough!!!  The whole staff is incredibly warm and welcoming, and Kendall's husband, Laurent, makes the best coffee in France, so be sure and have a latte while you are there!  A big thank you to Marjorie, Kendall and Laurent for making my time at their beautiful atelier so very memorable!
