There's always something special about cooking with friends and loved ones, and throughout February, Willows Lodge is hosting a series of Cooking with your Sweetheart classes.
Chef Bobby Moore from Barking Frog Restaurant, and his wife Michelle show us how to make a crepe called "The Local." They just opened a new on-site creperie called Fireside Cellars Café at the Willows Lodge.
There are two more Cooking with your Sweetheart classes coming up. The classes are FREE but space is limited so get there early. These classes are on February 20th & 27th from 5:30pm-6:30pm
For more information on the Cooking with your Sweetheart classes and on the Fireside Cellars Cafe visit their website.
