We visited Yvan's kitchen as part of a Backroad's Culinary/Hiking Adventure and I must say it was a real highlight. Yvan's sense of humor and openness immediately made the entire group (13 of us) feel at home. We cooked, we learned, we talked and we...More

Yvan is a great cook and entertainer but despite being warned about my coeliac disease and asked not to choose recipes with flour he did and it contaminated the other food. Definitely go if you don’t have coeliac disease but if you do, don’t go.
