The Gascony Cookery School English 

Located in the beautifully quaint village of Gramont in the heart of Gascony, The Gascony Cookery School is a Cooking Holiday in France with a difference. With the combined knowledge and experience of two professional chefs of French cuisine– one French and one English – we offer an initiation into French cookery that is not only thorough, practical and accessible to all, but also enjoyable. Built around the ethos that anyone can cook and that practice is the only way to make perfect (see ‘Our Philosophy’ for more details), The Gascony Cookery School believes in a hands-on approach to cookery tuition; this means that from the moment you begin one of our courses in French Cookery until the moment you finish, you are the new chef in our kitchen. We want our students to cook, not sit back and take notes. Finally, our Cookery School is located in the middle of a small, rural French village which means that your journey into French cuisine will take place in a wholly traditional setting. You will be accommodated in a renovated, seventeenth century chambres d’hotes, in which David and his wife Vikki will be your hosts, and your time will be shared between David’s purpose-built teaching kitchen and Bernard’s professional kitchen in his restaurant in the village. Both the chambres d’hotes and the cookery school are warm, homely environments in which you will instantly feel a part of the family, and a part of the very special village in which The Gascony Cookery School is based.
