The most amazing experience. We learned to make great French food in a bucolic setting in the country.......... You won’t regret your decision to attend this cooking session!
I had the best time with Chef Eric at the Walnut Grove! I learned broad stroke cooking techniques as well as details in presentation and plating that I will take back with me to enhance my daily cooking! He was very knowledgable and created a fun and creative environment in the kitchen. Wonderful experience!
This cooking school was absolutely amazing and exceeded my expectations! Eric went above and beyond to adapt the course to suit my culinary abilities.... You will not be disappointed or go hungry lol!
If you are looking for a fabulous French Cooking School, I would highly recommend this school. My mother and I had a wonderful week learning, laughing, cooking and eating fabulous food...
You can learn French cuisine from a book, or a school wherever you live, but why would you do that when you could travel to the French countryside and learn in a small-group setting with an accomplished French chef?...... In any case, book the class. You won't regret it.
I can’t fully describe what an amazing time I had here on this beautiful farm. Chef Eric is a brilliant Chef and teacher. I highly recommend spending time here. You will learn so much about food and life.
Thank you for the most Wonderfull experience! We enjoyed every moment of it. We learned a lot and will apply these techniques and knowledge in our kitchens. Your kindness and patience touches our hearts.
Eric, I had an amazing time! You made the experience fun and enriching! The dinner menus were always creatives and delicious! I wish you a lot of success with the business and lots of happiness!
This is the best of the many cooking schools I have attended. Thank you Chef. You are an amazing person as well as a great Chef! FUN - FUN - FUN and knowledgeable.
Eric, I not only learned a lot about cooking, I had fun too! From the technical aspects to hearing stories about the Duke and getting out the house to adventure, every aspect of this course was truly wonderful. All I can think of is how much I want to come back for seconds!
The course is amazing! No better feeling than waking up to some warm baguette and finishing the day with proper fine french dining and a glass of port wine. the course is an amazing experience overall. 10/10 would recommend and be back for a part 2!
The course itself provides a deep knowledge and nuance that only someone as experienced as Chef Eric could provide. I learned so many things that can’t be taught at a distance or through textbooks, truly gaining an understanding of the texture, the taste, the craftsmanship required in cooking great food.
First of all, Eric is an amazingly talented and experienced chef. His skill, quiet confidence and ability to teach, made for an extremely productive 6 days. I got exactly what I’d hoped for, a comprehensive introduction to French cooking techniques as well as the ever important presentation of dishes.
If you care about what you eat; if you love learning by doing, and want to learn from the absolute best; if you want a hands-on speed run of French cuisine with practical skills you can apply at home; this course is worth your while.
