Sterling Power

How lucky for UK citizens at the moment with the pound so strong against the Euro! That means for only £730 one can get a full week's cooking course with great Michelin standard meals (lunch and dinner) with us every day! Accommodation will cost an additional £250 for six nights stay in a cosy gite or B&B. When you think of the course and the food and the accommodation all for under £1000 that has to be one of the best deals in Europe at present!!

First students from Spain and Italy

We recently had two lovely students from Spain and Italy. They came from two countries famous for their culinary heritage and were curious to investigate French cuisine. Was it all butter and cream?!

Kerrouet Lunch

Today we had a simple lunch with a pizza  Provençal (lots of tomatoes and herbs (basel, sage, thyme) as well as garlic and a teaspoon of espelette pepper to give a gentle bite! 

For our main lunch course today we had chicken and mushroom salad with pancetta in a curry mayonnaise.

What our students are cooking this week

It's a busy time at French Dining School. We are cooking lunch and dinner every day for our first Spanish and Italian students! Here is a sample of what we are enjoying: 

Yesterday lunch included smoked duck breast with pear salad.

Dinner started with artichoke in a citrus sauce followed by chicken thighs stuffed with langoustine,nettle, créme fraiche potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes.

We finished with a lovely rasberry panna cotta: 
It's hard to beat salmon fish cakes especially on the patio!
