Another great blog on our Cooking course, this time on our family courses. Completed by Gillian Denovan, great blogger on all things French…


If you’re visiting the Dordogne and looking for something unique to do with your family – THIS IS IT! Ian’s family & kids cookery course is fantastic – it’s fun, educational and a great opportunity for some family bonding time.

Ready, Steady, Cook
The day kicks off at 10am with a warm introduction from Chef Ian. He explains that the Dordogne is the gastronomic capital of France which is in large part why he decided to settle his family in this region. The area is famous for its foie gras, duck, truffles, walnuts, specialist cheeses and not to mention its incredible seasonal produce. Ian asks the children to try everything even if they think they don’t like it. He jokes that it’s often simply down to the way it’s been cooked. Compare Mum’s soggy overcooked courgettes with some pan-grilled courgettes sprinkled with rock salt. Enough said.

Next we don our aprons and meet the rest of the participants. There were 14 of us on the course with ages ranging from 7 years of age through to teenagers and their parents. The course takes place in the beautiful outdoor terrace (weather permitting).

About the Author:

When we arrived at our new home, we had a dream to create a place in which we would wish to stay; a warm and personal environment but with a professional approach. We fell in love with the Dordogne Valley from the minute we arrived here and as a couple we are passionate about the area and the amazing array of fresh ingredients. With these passions in mind we built our business. We love to pass on both our knowledge of the area, both the touristic and the "off the beaten track" . We are immensely proud of our accommodation, cookery courses and tours and giving our guests the best memories are our priority.
