Gascony still remains one of the most "French" parts of France. It is largely unspoilt by tourism and retains a great deal of character and charm. Steeped in history these lands were ruled by the Romans, conquered by the Visigoths and then by the Francs. It is a region of gently rolling hills, hilltop bastide towns & villages, an abundance of rivers and wide-open spaces.
Gascony is home to some of the finest ingredients and noblest dishes of French cuisine, including succulent magrets and confits of canard and oie, the famous foie gras partnered with freshly baked pain de campagne, the tangy local chévre and brebis cheeses, the plump Agen prunes marinated in orange blossom water and the sweet and melting Armagnac drenched croustades and, of course, the angel's digestif Armagnac.
All cookery classes are spread over our two kitchens within the village of Gramont. One in the leading Auberge of the region and the other within the cookery school's own Table d'hote. Both are well respected for their use of fresh local produce and authentic regional dishes. We believe that our guests should be truly involved in every aspect of the cooking experience. Your chefs David & Bernard will delight in showing you all that is special in this region and their passion for Gascony, its people, traditions and produce is unsurpassed. With expert guidance our chefs will show you through basic knife skills to creating some of the classic dishes of the Gascon region. You will be immersed in the enthusiasm and fun with our chefs from the moment you enter the kitchen.
You will be taken to the local markets to experience all that is great and fresh in French local produce. When the evening arrives you can look forward to relaxing in the warmth of the evening sun on our terrace. The views across the rolling countryside and Valleys of this part of France are outstanding and there's no better place to enjoy them.
