Mixed Week Itinerary

Sunday

Arrival from 4:00pm. You settle into your room and we meet up for drinks and canapés at 7.00pm to discuss our program. You then enjoy a three-course dinner.

Cooking Course

Day One & Day Two

We leave after breakfast to go to a market or visit a producer, to get our ingredients. We will also make a few detours on the way to see the pretty villages of the area. We come back for lunch.

At 1.00 pm, we meet in the kitchen, where everyone gets involved in a real team effort to prepare dinner. We will cook for about 3 hours, so you then get some time to relax or to drive to town. We meet for aperitif at 7:00 pm, and head back to the kitchen for the last minute prep if necessary.
You are invited to pop into the kitchen to plate up each course, but you can do as little or as much as you like: your holiday, so your time, your rhythm!

Patisserie Course

Day One

After breakfast we go to a local patisserie to sample a few classics with a nice cup of coffee. This will give you a precise idea of the presentation we will be aiming for when we reproduce them in our kitchen. We come back for lunch.

At 1.00 pm, we meet in the kitchen, to create our own pastries, which will be served for dessert that very same night. We will be in the kitchen until about 4:00 pm, so you will get some time to relax before we meet up at 7:00 pm for an aperitif followed by dinner.

Day Two

After breakfast we meet in the kitchen, to start baking. We will stop for lunch and get back to the kitchen to finish our pastries. You will then again get some time to relax before the aperitif and dinner. Once again, your creations will be served for dessert that very same night.

Departure is on Friday morning. The room is yours until 11.00am if you have your own vehicle, but drop off to Tonneins station is for the 8.10am train.

The order of days may vary. The French cooking course excursions may depend on the season and on their availability, we will visit some producers among the following: honey producer, duck farm, chocolatier, prune farm, wine maker, fish farm ... as well as producers markets.
