In this episode of the Paris Paysanne Podcast we talk with Guillaume Mignard about the cooking and life skills school he co-created, La Grange aux Savoir-Faire.


After being inspired by initiatives such as Italy’s agriturismo movement and River Cottage in the UK, Guillaume Mignard and his partner Julie Hauwuy created La Grange aux Savoir-Faire. Located in Vallières-les-Grandes in the Loir et Cher region of France, this cooking school brings artisans and students together with a focus on life long learning and skill building.

Thanks so much to Guillaume for sharing the philosophy and offerings of La Grange aux Savoir-Faire with us on this episode!
