Cooking workshop & visit to our mill

Since 1982, Jean Marc Montegottero and his team have been perpetuating the artisan production of 100% fruit-derived virgin oils; a fine, completely natural product: one fruit...one oil.

As the years have gone by, L’Huilerie Beaujolaise has managed to earn the trust of the greatest French and foreign chefs; making them ambassadors for its exceptional products.

As part of our partnership with La Vallée de la Gastronomie, we’re offering you the chance to spend a half-day finding out just what it takes to make our products.

To awaken your taste buds, your journey will start in Belleville-sur-Saône, where Loïc Piètre (Prestafood & Com) will host a cooking workshop based around one or more of our products (oils, vinegars or fruit powders). 

This is not a hands-on cooking class, but you will still have a chance to pitch in occasionally. 

And of course, sample the food that has been prepared before your eyes.

At the end of this “appetizer”, you will be given a recipe card so that you can re-enact your gastronomic experience at home.

A short 20-minute trip will take you to the gates of our mill in Beaujeu,  where you will get a glimpse of our beautiful region, the Beaujolais.

During a guided visit of the 19th century workshop, you will learn a few of our manufacturing secrets.

After the visit, you can sample our oils and vinegars and browse our shop.
