"Thank you for such an amazing holiday! What a wonderful balance of work, relaxation and fun. I loved learning to plate as well as some of the coretricks like the veal glace. Thank you again."x

Leisure activity in the Mayenne

The most amazing experience. We learned to make great French food in a bucolic setting in the country. The chateau is charming and the grounds are simply beautiful. Homegrown veggies and fresh eggs from the chef’s chickens are used in the food we prepared. Plus we used and sampled many local items. I learns lots of tips and tricks to improve my cooking game. To top it off, the chef prepares a 5 course meal each night as you unwind from the days lessons. And, like many of the other reviews said, it was very hard to leave this amazing place! You won’t regret your decision to attend this cooking session!
