This course comprises intensive instruction and hands-on-sessions with our chefs, plus an additional afternoon spent under a chef’s supervision, when clients will be able to take their own “free-style” French House Chefs’ Challenge.
You will be taught everything from presentation techniques and knife skills to some of the methods and secret tips used by our top modern French chefs in their creation of a haute cuisine which is revered worldwide.
Demonstration and hands-on periods will be divided into sessions devoted to particular culinary skills.

The emphasis, as with all our French House Party cookery courses, will be on the combination and balance of flavours and texture, using the freshest ingredients.
You will also learn to present each dish with meticulous attention to detail.
As part of the 7-day vacation, there will also be a degustation of regional wines with the emphasis on wine and food-matching, a visit to an olive growers’ factory co-operative to taste and compare their top products, and two evening meals out at fantastic local restaurants.
