Take two perfect hosts David and Vikki, mix with one brilliant Frenchman and chef called Bernard, one smiling gorgeous German waitress called Urma (apologies if I've spelt her name incorrectly), plus Mike and Sue their fabulous friends who own an awesome Mill house; who also come to dinner then add Dick - their Dutch neighbour - who taxi's you to...

I visited the cookery school in the summer of 2013 (and shamefully have only just got round to writing the review!). This was, quite simply, the best holiday I've ever been on. David and Vikki were incredibly hospitable, my room was beautiful, and the location was idyllic. Each lesson was fun and memorable. I still regularly cook many of the... More

I've run out of superlatives: Gramont already feels like a second home, so welcoming are David, Vikki and Bernard (and everyone else in the village, I must admit). The "Returners" course is extremely well judged, and builds on the things we learned before, teaching new skills and honing those we already had. The time just flew by; on the evening... More

My daughter surprised me with a trip to the cookery school for my birthday, we arrived a little later than expected and was greeted with warmth and a 'no dress code here, drinks waiting for you on the terrace'. What a great way to start! We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking with David and Bernard and will certainly be putting in... More

Just back from a week at the Gascony Cooking School. As a returning pupil, it was a delight to spend some more time in the lovely village and learn some more great recipes. The atmosphere was relaxed and the cooking and teaching was fabulous. I learnt so much more and I will be practicing everything back home. Thanks to David,... More

My husband surprised me with a week at the cookery school along with my Swedish "daughter" to celebrate a momentous birthday. The setting is fabulous and the teaching is superb. David and Vikki are wonderful hosts and make you feel like family. We had only 4 in our class and we all bonded immediately.Cooking with Bernard at his restaurant was... More

Amazing week at this beautiful cookery school. David, Vikki and Bernard are just the most wonderful and accommodating hosts, the location is stunning, tranquil and remote, letting you escape the hustle and bustle for a few days. I loved the way David and Bernard taught, easy to understand with some quite complex cooking, the end results was outstanding. The rooms... More

I was lucky enough to do the 6 day program earlier this month. It was a fantastic week! I have left with new skills in the kitchen, an increased appetite for French food and the most wonderful memories of Gramont and its surrounding areas. David and Vikki are fantastic hosts and really make you feel at home while staying at... More

We could NOT be more delighted with the school, the location, learning, and most of all the FUN we had! First, the accommodations were delightful. Second, David and Vikki were such charming hosts it made the trip fabulous. And third,... More

Just back from a fabulous week. David, Vikki and Bernard were all so welcoming and the cooking instruction was superb. I managed to achieve some great results, with a little help. Really great cooking and serving tips. Already booked a return visit.
