Why not treat yourself and someone close to you to the ultimate foodie gift?
Here is the opportunity to enjoy a weekend of fabulous food and wine in beautiful South West France where you can relax and savour the cooking of our UK Masterchef finalist.
Along with delicious home cooked meals and a variety of local wines, trips out, cooking demonstrations and time to relax, the weekend will give you the opportunity to learn something new or revitalise your interest in cooking. The focus will be on using seasonal local and regional ingredients.
