There is a specific dish I would like to learn, can I request it to be part of the course?

Our primary goal is to make sure you get the maximum from the cooking course. If there is a dish that we can reasonably include in our programme, we will happily do so. However, we stick to seasonal ingredients and seasonal cuisine, so we will not for example make cassoulet in the summer or cook with tomatoes in the winter.

Meet some of the people we'll visit

Of the many producers we visit on the seasonal french cooking course, Tucked away among the rolling hills of the Lot-et-Garonne, Gilbert has been crafting his wines for many years. As an organic wine producer he grows a selection of grapes including a very special variety unique to the area. His knowledge and experience in wine is what makes visiting Gilbert very special. On our visit, he'll walk us through his grape vines explaining how he uses the natural environment to benefit the vines themselves and the blending methods used to achieve great tasting wine. You'll soon discover his wines have lots of character and flavour as we have a wine tasting over a picnic together.
