French Culinary Vacations

Learn to cook the food of your dreams

Set in the idyllic French countryside, our home-based cooking holidays are perfect for those who want to learn the art of French cuisine but also want to soak up some of the beauty of rural France.

Our cookery courses ranges from the basics like seasoning, knife skills, stocks and mother sauces, cooking meat and fish, as this is the foundation of cooking.

Next you will learn and practice meat and fish preparation, sous vide cooking, home-smoking, pastry and dessert, chocolate and sugar work to fine dining presentation skills, plus many other building blocks that will take you on a culinary journey to achieve your perfect dinner party.

All our culinary tours and classes are offered in small groups so that everyone can have a hands-on experience cooking with the chef.

Be prepared to be part of a warm and welcoming kitchen, chef Eric animates his class to bring fun into the learning experience
