"Summer afternoon - Summer afternoon... the two most beautiful words in the English language." (Henry James 1843 - 1916)

So, a summer cooking course in France rather than a formal cookery school, you will learn to cook with techniques you can later use to simplify your busy home life, and impress family and friends.

Throughout your summer cooking course, using fresh local ingredients, you will be preparing, cooking and, most important this - eating local, Mediterranean and 'Pacific rim' cuisine.

You will learn:

On your summer cooking course in France we will introduce you to ways of cooking exciting and varied vegetarian food (and we're not talking 'nut roasts' here!), light summer salads and cold soups, and cool ourselves down with ice creams and sorbets.

Learn to cook French food in France.

Learn to cook on a barbecue without incinerating food, family and friends. And while you learn to cook, stay at our comfortable and spacious  centrally-heated accommodation.

Or, if you have your own self catering accommodation nearby, just come and learn to cook. Your non-cooking family, or partner, are also welcome to stay with us at reduced rates.
