The Wilde Kitchen is where you'll learn to cook with Sinéad the French way, where the best of Norman cuisine is always on the menu during your cooking holiday.
Irish-born Sinead Wilde Allart studied Home Economics and taught it for a few years before meeting Belgian-born Philippe and moving with him to France. Her time in France has enabled her to add to her culinary repertoire enormously while learning how to speak French, raise chickens and daughters, renovate old houses, fight with local builders, ride a horse, and sing a little opera. Sinead opened the doors of her farmhouse kitchen in 2006. Sineads idea is to share l'art de vivre à la française.

"Fabulous experience in a beautiful setting!"
Our adventure in French cooking was a fantastic experience due to the expertise and professionalism of our instructor and host, Sinead. She has developed her extensive property to accommodate the well appointed guesthouse, gardens, wood burning oven kitchen, and her manor home with beautiful, instructional kitchen and dining area. The entire stay was well organized, comfortable, and informative. This was a first for my husband and I to experience together. It could not have been more perfect. We learned so much but the best part was the camaraderie shared in this wonderful French countryside.

This is an extraordinary experience. Sinéad is a fun, engaging, informative teacher who let us in on French cooking, life in Normandie and her own experiences.
The location in rural France is just beautiful and well located near the coast, markets and other villages. The accommodation is stylish and comfortable.

"Don't Miss It"
Rated Excellent because there wasn't an Outstanding rating available. Sinead was very patient with me--it was much appreciated. Learned some very valuable tips that I can use in the future especially about how to pick produce and build a menu. This the third cooking adventure and it was the best! Highly recommend
