I had the most wonderful time at the Gascony Cookery School. It was a combination of perfect things: a perfectly low-key chambre d'hôte in a perfect small town in the perfect French countryside. The course itself was challenging, well run, and very very fun. Every meal we shared was delightful, delicious and perfectly wonderful. I traveled solo (not the only...

It's got to say something about this place that we went back for a fourth cookery week: this time it was the Fish & Crustacean course. What a whirlwind! As always, David, Vikki, and Bernard were superb, the classes eye-opening, and the meals... oh the meals... I don't think I'll need to eat for a fortnight (my own fault, entirely,...

I can't say enough good things about my week in Gascony cooking with David, Bernard and Vikki. The class was perfection - we cooked everything from classic French pastries to foie gra and cassoulet. Everything was hands on and when they say intensive, they mean it. We spent a good portion of the each day preparing our meals ourselves, not...

The cookery school in Gascony was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Not only did I learn so much about the art of French cooking from Bernard and David, but I also learned so much about the French culture. David and Vikki were so welcoming and their home was absolutely stunning making everyone feel so comfortable. It...

It is my pleasure to write a review of the Foundation Course I attended at the Gascony Cookery School. It was perfection from the minute I arrived in Gramont when I was swept up to the church as there was a musical recital happening, to the sunflower crops being at their most beautiful ( they were late flowering so that...

David and Vikki along with Bernard make everyone feel welcome and comfortable in their Gascony Cookery School no matter what experience they have. A wide range of skills are practiced and this is hands on not just a demo. Meals and accommodation are excellent using the food that has been prepared in the "class". The venue offers a true Gascon...

We have just had a brilliant time learning to improve our cooking skills with David and Vikki. Serious, but never solemn, the experience was fantastic from start to finish. We met interesting fellow cooks, ate wonderful food and enjoyed the surrounding countryside.

My experience at Gascony cookery school could not have been better. I was traveling by myself and didn’t quite know what to expect, but Vicki and David were the most gracious hosts. The idyllic town of Gramont and the accommodations are beyond beautiful and welcoming. We learned so much working with chef’s David and Bernard, I’m happy I took the...

I don't often write reviews, because they can often be taken in different ways. But I have to put this review in place, because the Gascony French Cookery School is far more than a cookery school! David and Vikki, the owners and Bernard, the French chef who owns the Auberge restaurant, live in an idyllic village and they have created...

I have always wanted to take part in a cookery course in France - and what a way to start! From the moment I booked the communication was excellent and even a last minute change of course was no problem to David & Vikki. Upon arrival I was made to feel like a member of the family.
