This course offers a fab collection of simple, pretty and absolutely full-proof recipes that will absolutely become part of your life - you'll wonder how you ever lived without them! If you are in any way afraid of cooking with fish, then this course will remove that fear forever! Visits to saltpans (where we'll have a superb meal overlooking the pink salty waters), an olive press (for an olive- and olive-oil tasting) and open-air markets are included, as well as a trip to the Medieval Walled City of Carcassonne...
- PRESERVING SUMMER - September 6-9 - 800 euros ALL INCLUSIVE
Every culture has developed ways to preserve foods, usually borne out of necessity - to make seasonal, perishable foods last the frugal winter months. In France these preserves have become celebrated delicacies (think rillettes
of goose, foie gras
of duck, salted anchovies, walnut or raspberry vinegars, tapenades
, sugared fruits, flavoured oils, dried mushrooms...) each and every one capable of turning a meal into a glorious celebration! Combine eating and making these dishes with excursions to food markets and artisan food producers, waterside picnics and a visit to the Cathar stronghold of Carcassonne, and you're in for a great weekend...
- SIMPLY FRENCH - September 13-20 - 1300 euros ALL INCLUSIVE
A FULL WEEK to experience all that is QUINTESSENTIALLY FRENCH... classic French food made easy, excursions to typical French food markets and artisan producers, a water-side pique-nique
and a boat trip on the Canal du Midi, as well as a visit to a typical French vide-grenier
, cosmopolitan cities (with time for shopping) and gorgeous restaurants, and of course a visit to the Medieval Citadel of Carcassonne...
