French Travel Connection’s new ‘Gascony Cooking School’ packages are all about making French cooking pleasurable, fun and accessible to all – even beginners.
Off the busy tourist trail in the medieval fortified village of Gramont in south-west France, The Gascony Cookery School is located in what is considered one of the most ‘authentically French’ parts of the country. The rich farming landscape yields some of France’s best produce – from wheat to excellent wines – and with no heavy industry or major highways, the region is peaceful and unspoilt.
The Gascony Cooking School is run by two professional chefs of French cuisine – one English and one French – offering a hands-on approach to cookery tuition in both a purpose-built teaching kitchen and the professional kitchen of the highly acclaimed local restaurant, ’le petit feuillant’.
Students are accommodated in beautifully renovated, seventeenth century chambres d’hotes (bed and breakfast), with all guestrooms offering a private ensuite, air conditioning, heating, terrace access and views of the Gascony countryside. Nearby are picturesque walks, historic townships, soothing thermal pools and excellent markets.
Weekend (Friday-Sunday) packages are priced from $740* per person twin share and six-day (Sunday-Friday) packages are priced from $1890* per person twin share. Prices include:
